(Interesting trivia point. According to the list of International Arbiters, the IA immediately prior to me in alphabetical order is turning 100 this year!)

New FIDE Arbiters Website
FIDE have just announced a new resource website for FIDE Arbiters. It is arbiters.fide.com and is designed to be a central point of information for arbiters (like the FIDE Trainers website is for trainers). For the moment its main function is to consolidate the information that can be already found on the FIDE website, albeit with some searching required. I suspect it will expand in the future, with the website inviting questions from arbiters (and others) on the subject of the laws of chess.
