Jun-25-05  SnoopDogg: If Adams wins I'm ordering pizza and a premium membership. And if I could I would give something to everyone here as well.
Jun-25-05  CAPA2422: Good morning all. I am a premium member now on What is the best thing about being a premium member?

Jun-25-05  SnoopDogg: What a coincidence you posted that after I posted I was going to become one if Adams wins. Well I would say the avatar. :))

Also I was wondering what do you actually get to do that a non member can't do? How do you guys study games and so forth?

Jun-25-05  CAPA2422: Here is another question. Please dont answer too quickly like you guys did for my first question. ha ha

My firewall keeps picking up on some "OverFlow" thingy.

Is that something from
Should I let that in?

Jun-25-05  JohnSilver: I hope Micheal will win this game today.
Further I hope Brazil will win over Germany at Confederation Cup and meet Argentina in final.
Jun-25-05  Skepticus: Brazil - México on finals. Let's rule out Argentina.
Jun-25-05  Kaspy2: John, I feel tricky Micky will push the beast real hard today. However, in football, Brazil just wasnt all itself a few games now and must improve otherwise Germany plays them 2:1
Jun-25-05  CAPA2422: Any guess on what Adams will open with today?

I say C4.

If you don't know what it is/does chances are you don't want it running. Try and download some free spyware remover like Ad-Aware.

Jun-25-05  CAPA2422: I wonder how many people are here on watching this?

If Adams wins, I am buying all day at Beer page.
Jun-25-05  farrooj: well, if you want my help guys, I'll kibitz today. But I'm just waiting for them to start
Jun-25-05  Wilhelm: Adams MUST play 1.c4 (or 1.Nf3 or at least 1.d4), give it a try, it could reveal a lot more about HYDRA ;)
