Script for colored suit symbols in Google Docs
Ahhh that works nicely, thanks. Years ago I modded some fonts with FontMaker, so that '[' became , and so on. Doesn't solve the colour issue though.

Bot Forum: Are Bots too Human?
It's possible for Programmer to build an ‘unlikely to have’ table that the proxy deals would ‘consider’ (can’t be tough, I’ve done it). In your example, from RHO’s perspective, LHO would be considered ‘unlikely’ to have the King, having not beaten the Jack. There are all ...
Bot Forum: Are Bots too Human?
