Credits, the people
Chesspupil would like to thank the following people for their support of our site's development, both directly and indirectly, particularly during the early stages. They have contributed in some way or another -normally by means of their work- and asked nothing in return.
Almudi, Javier: He worked as a cosysop and created a MANGA graphics area for chessnia BBS.
Anton Alonso, Pedro: He's the amazing SPANISH LORDS programmer who made Chessnia BBS's first demo.
Belle, Francisco: Movera BBS Sysop. I owe him such a large amount of hours of help and work.... that I've lost count. He's a great worker, take my word.
Beltrán, Fernando: El Sol BBS Sysop. He gave me a hand setting up a few things on my BBS, never requesting anything in return. His BBS closed down, but he's a man who likes big projects, so he might have something coming up under his sleeve. ;-)
Benito, Guillermo: A great guy. He has worked as a cosysop and he has a very serious attitude when it comes to doing something for others.
Broomfield, John: One of my best friends. Part of the blame for "all this" is his! :-)
Canibano, José: He translated a few programs, and he did it terribly well.
Carreras, Jesús: For his contributions from the very first moment. He has sent more files to our system than any other user.
Dagnino, Carlos: Sysop from Rolling BBS, now extinct. He's a 14 year old wizard!
D. Córdoba : For everything...
Del Campo, Agustín: He always had faifth in me... Some day I'll compensate him. I still dont know how or when exactly, but the time will come! :-)
Drummon, Robert: For his original template design idea. This is his site.
Ehlert, Mike: He's the most famous Sysop in the whole world. Why? perhaps you should take a look at his page and learn what he does for other Sysops. www.pcmicro.com
Ferrer, Roberto: He gave Chessnia some legal assistance. Thanks mate!
García, Ricardo: Moral support and contributions.

Gil, Ibán: He did Chessnia BBS' movie guide for a long time.
Ginés, Pedro: He has lent us the rating lists which he makes, so that they're available to anyone who needs them.
Gómez Luesia, Jesús: A good friend. Programmer, outstanding graphic designer, ingeneer... never says no when it comes to lending a hand.
Grasa, Manolo: He made some Chessnia BBS stickers so that we could promote Chessnia.
Gutiérrez, Juan: This man needs no presentation. He's a pimp! I can's say a single favourable word about him!! :-)

Larrodera, Luis Carlos: He created the movies section at Chessnia.
Maz: From Studiox-designs. Went out of his way to help me with the new design of our site. Outstanding designer.

The following sofware has been used to build this website:
