I was thinking about what to do and it occurred to me that I could search somewhere on the Internet for openings for help. I didn't know if that was considered ethical or not, so I didn't do it, but what do you think? I know that trying moves against a program would be wrong, but what about manually searching through an openings database? What are the parameters of these games?

Personally I'd say do whatever you feel like. This is a pretty relaxed board and not exactly counting towards anyone's chess ratings or whatever. If you can find a chess program that automatically gives you the best move in every situation, more power to ya, though that kinda takes the fun out of actually playing against someone else. But I'd say there are a fair number of us that have chess books and more specifically chess books relating to openings at home, and don't hesitate to use them during these games. I see nothing wrong with looking on the internet for help in establishing a certain set of opening moves if you'd like.
