Can a declarer ask what the contract is?
If we wanted to quibble, we could ask whether declarer's turn to play applied to playing from the dummy as well as from hand :) I personally enjoy a good quibble.
In The Well: Chip Martel
Hey Chip -- I'm very happy to see Bujold on your list. I love her fantasy also (Curse of Chalion -- great book). And Connie Willis is always unexpected and often funny (Bellwether, They All Fall Down). And Doomsday -- another great book. How about your favorite mystery authors and titles?
Curious accusation in Philadelphia

Eight Is Enough -- Seeking suggestions for rank definitions etc.
Mike: Thanks for your detailed comments. I have pair-teams on my list for later this year, but I thought that 8=E would be easier for people to understand. I expect to spend a lot of time lobbying advanced players. Also, this is a weak session that we're seeking ...
Essay: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the BBO Bots
Same here for now, but there is a vocal group asking for bracketed teams all the way.
Play Records, Another Argument for E-Bridge (not necessarily online bridge)
Add Claim, Concede, Accept, and Don't Accept buttons. As the card play will be captured up to that point, there shouldn't be a problem.
