The latest ChessCafe.com article - https://chesscafe.com/the-skittles-room/on-hiatus/ - has this to say:
We would like to thank those who have supported ChessCafe with a purchase of product and subsequent membership. However, subscriptions have fallen just shy of what is needed to maintain our stable of great columnists. Therefore, we are taking a three-month hiatus from posting new content
I suspect "just shy" is a euphemism.
Does anybody have better information on when / whether ChessCafe.com is going to come back to life?
