I couldn't find Bizarro's Chess on the Chess Variant pages. Is it on the web anywhere, and if so could you add a link to it?

To Charles Gilman's, Jaguaribe's Bizarro is described here:

Dear Charles:

I've been busy at work and tired at home, so, I didn't worked the graphics needed to explain the grand master and the arabic spear move (I believe you call it pawnrider), the display of the game and the world change/capture by accident move.

As soon as I get time I'll post it.

I submitted a rule-enforcing preset to the editors for review, but I'm noticing that it changed me to the game's inventor when I did.  I don't want to take any credit for something that I did not do - could that please be restored to the rightful inventor?  I'm not sure what I did wrong to make that happen.  Thanks!

I removed the mention of Bizzaro's Chess, because I could not find any information on it.

Thanks for getting that changed, Fergus.  Lastly, I try to send an open invite for the game, but the error pops up:

Failed to create the directory /home/chessvariants/public_html/play/pbmlogs/anemic_chess.

Nick, it worked after I changed the permissions on the parent directory to allow writing by group members.
