Now when friend postal chess player receives a card he scans it into his computer. The computer (with the appropriate sophisticated software) then deciphers the message and moves, computes the proper response, composes a reply, and prints the post card. All our friend has to do is pick up the mail, feed the chess cards into the scanner, and load the proper blank post cards into the printer. And he can now lean back and really enjoy his postal chess games to the fullest.
