how about websites too? what sites are decent to play on?

I played on yahoo a few times but i didnt like it too much.
For internet play IGS is among the best:: http://www.pandanet.co.jp/English/

Or you could get something like GoWrite2, and just play a good friend by emailing the board back and forth. It works great. :: http://gowrite.net/

As to AI computer-play software I am fond of my old "Cosmos" Go program ca. 1996: low end on graphics but very good for play. The same data engine is in the present day "Many Faces of Go", which is probably the best AI Go program out there.

See here:: http://www.smart-games.com/manyfaces.html

For a list of some available Go software with some reviews:: http://www.britgo.org/gopcres/gopcres1.html
