can you put 8 queens on a chess board so that none of the queens can attack each other?

if you don't have a chess board or don't feel like leaving your computer, here is a small verry small program to try it!

8queens.EXE

If you get it, {alt + Printscreen} paste into a graphic program and post it here. Other wise no body will believe you.

In a week or so, i'll post my applet that solves it as well. Good luck
