Tip for beating the computer at chess

Well, not all programs, but at least Knights:
  1. Start a game. Make a couple of moves.
  2. When it is your turn, save the game to disk.
  3. Now reopen the game and make your move.
  4. Watch with glee as the computer's clock runs down.
It's a bug; 100% reproducible if you follow the above steps.
