Memo '17 to C Quad
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

1) Read your memos! Otherwise, ignorance makes you a screw up. 2) Play more chess. Read that endgame chapter in Horowitz' book. 3) Be nice to people in word and deed. What a pleasant surprise:0 4) Do what your memos say to do. Otherwise, you'll get canned. 5) Don't play chess at work unless it's your lunch break. See #4.

Mary Anne and Ginger, immediately after you've read this, come to my office. It's a Two-fer Tuesday!!

Thank you notyetagm, olaf4lena.
