I received this message from JimmyS:

1. JimmyS (16:30 14-Nov-15 EST): Hi. Please check your CocoII6809 handle for malfunction. It flagged very early in a game on the ICC.

What is a ‘handle malfunction’, and what it flagged early in a game?
And them, if I try to /computer, it tells me I can’t and that I should read my messages.

Can someone help me with this? I found it difficult to get help online from any admin/volunteer.

Hi.

When a (C)omputer account flags early in a game (this means that your computer let the time run without playing), ICC automatically blocks the account, so that if there is a malfunction, it won’t lose a lot of rating points. I have given you back your rated games, but please check your set up and see if you can find what’s the problem.

Best,
Lyon

If you look at my other topics in the Computer Pool, you will understand why my account let the time flies.

Arena is disabling my engine ponder for whatever reason I can’t understand, and I am asking help from others who have successful setup.

Documentation on how to do a proper setup is non-existant.

Thank you for giving me the right to play again.
