Let's say I have placed my opponent in check (no existing game like this) leaving them only one legal move. Now, while they could offer a draw or resign I am often surprised at the effort of a few days to make that single legal move. I wrote my first chess program in 73 and if it only had one legal move in the legal move list it gave the position no further consideration and made that move. thoughts...?
I still use dial-up, so depending on the time of day I try to not tie up the phone for too long. I go to the 'Current Games' page and write down all of my opponents' moves without really looking at them if the position is still somewhat complicated, and then analyze off-line.
