May-18-13  frogbert: Ok. So long, and thanks for all the fish!

  parmetd: Love that Douglas Adams quote :)

Just stopped by your page to give you a lovely quote that you can use again and again :)

"Luck favors those who do not depend on it nor need it."

May-20-13  Fiona Macleod: Then it's probably not luck, but Talent.

  Tiggler: <frogbert> I hope you got well lubricated with fish oil and potato vodka. Both do wonders for tired bones.

  wordfunph: <froggy> Happy Birthday!

  moronovich: Happy Birthday, dear <frogbert> !

  MarkFinan: Has Frogbert left ceegee now? I always found him pretty helpful.
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <Mark>: Hope not, though I would understand, given the frustration he appeared to feel towards the end.

<frogbert>: Belated felicitations on your birthday, sir!

  parmetd: Oh dear frogbert, where art thou?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Abdel Irada: Ribbit!

Sep-17-13  achieve: Yes, Hans Arild, I sent you an email awhile back but you haven't responded. But more importantly: how are you?
Sep-17-13  Thorski: Mr. Runde, like so many of us, is probably a busy man unwilling to spend his free time making the kind of compromises necessary to enjoy this mostly wonderful site. My own premium membership is about to expire and I'm certainly not crazy about continuing to support CG until the staff demonstrates its willingness to deal with destructive users more resolutely.
Sep-17-13  achieve: Couldn't agree more. And it's obviously tough outthere; yet your point stands.

  Karpova: <frogbert> is still active here: Anand-Carlsen World Championship (2013)

He's had a rough time though:

Sep-20-13  achieve: heh heh - very reassuring. That pic I mean.
Oct-14-13  frogbert: Two photos from a dinner during Norway Chess 2013, May 17th 2013.

In first picture (more or less visible): Wang Hao, Teimour Radjabov, Peter Svidler, Vishwanathan Anand, Jran Aulin-Jansson (president of the Norwegian Chess Federation, Hikaru Nakamura and Hans Arild Runde -

In the second one - also more or less visible: Espen Agdestein, Wang Hao, Levon Aronian, Sergey Karjakin, Jon Ludvig Hammer, Teimour Radjabov and Hikaru Nakamura -

Nov-05-13  Bureaucrat: Hey, you're still around! I didn't notice those pictures until now.

Will you be working as a chess commentator for VG during the match in Chennai?

Nov-14-13  frogbert: Certainly - as you probably know by now! :o)

The round 4 coverage on VGTV so far has been seen by more than 480 000 viewers, the big majority of which <during> the game yesterday. That's a nifty audience!

Yesterday's TV broadcast:!/video/74316/o...

All of VGTV's World Championship related footage:!/sok/sjakk-vm

Chat and game commentary (all in Norwegian) can be found at

Dec-03-13  Bureaucrat: Hey ho, frogbert!

Well done with the VGTV shows! Such broadcasts should really have been prevented from reaching my office computer! :-D

Good entertainment, and even my old dad got hooked on chess.

Dec-24-13  brankat: Hi <frogbert>!

Wishing You all the best for the coming Holiday season!

Dec-25-13  Rolfo: God jul Hans Arild!
Dec-25-13  Bureaucrat: God jul, frogbert!

  MarkFinan: Ey up Frogbert.. I thought you'd left for good a year or so back but I noticed you've made a few posts this year.

I just wanted to know if you fancied another game on fics one night? I've improved a lot since we last played (no woman no cry n all that!) so I'd love another shot?

If not, I wish you all the best in life and hope you're still actively playing in tournaments and leagues. From what I can see it was good old Tpstar that pushed you away, but he's a lost cause, so come back because you've more to offer on a chess level here than he ever will. He beats you at accidental comedy though 😉

Peace out mate.
