> Hi, here is my solution to the chess 960 quiz. Since white and  
> black are the same I decided to just print it once and omit the  
> whole white/black thing. It is not totally efficient, for position  
> #960 it will have to iterate about 20,000 times, however it still  
> runs in about a one second in this case.
