|Oct-05-11|| ||JoergWalter: And this is quite an understatement, of course:
<Some lady came up to ask me what time it was, I did not speak her language, I tried to talk, all that game out was ... well, stammering and unintelligible is the best way to describe it.
As soon as she walked off, another lady (in a swimsuit) walked over and told me, "All she wanted was to know (is) what time it was.">
The Ray Ban glasses typical "top gun" equipment gave him away.
|Oct-05-11|| ||Robed.Bishop: <JoergWalter> I'm surprised she had the gall to approach at all. Imagine approaching a legend!|
|Oct-05-11|| ||JoergWalter: and just asking mr. handsome for the time not for an autograph. (or more)|
|Oct-05-11|| ||Robed.Bishop: Maybe she was saying, "Do you have the time to sign my naked breast?" and the other woman simply misunderstood.|
|Oct-06-11|| ||JoergWalter: <Robed.Bishop> now, tell me how to put XXX on two boobs?|
|Oct-06-11|| ||BobCrisp: <JoergWalter>, what the hell are you doing? Cease polluting <Winter>'s page with your witless jibber-jabber.|
|Oct-06-11|| ||JoergWalter: <BobCrisp> since you are back I can stop it now.|
|Oct-06-11|| ||ray keene: "witless jibber-jabber" sounds like mr t in the choc ad ! when i access this page its headed by an ad for "dark orbit" which looks even more plebeian!!|
|Oct-07-11|| ||BobCrisp: Yes, <Mr.T> is one of my cult heroes. A few years back, I caught the entire re-run of <The A-Team>; it's still great fun. |

|Oct-07-11|| ||ray keene: thanks for the tip-i never usually notice them except in this case which seemed wildly inappropriate considering the serious nature of the eponymous inhabitant|

A GM and 2 Masters! Not bad :-)
|Oct-09-11|| ||Robed.Bishop: Well, I used the phrase "naked breast" and everyone came running in.|
|Oct-09-11|| ||FSR: Naked breast?! Where?
One time some decades ago I was rolling my shopping cart into the local grocery store, when I noticed an ad to the right (on the wall where the store lets people post ads) that displayed a lot of breast. (It was some sort of breastfeeding-related ad.) I turned my head to look at it and, distracted, crashed my shopping cart into the wall. A woman looked to see what had distracted me so, and cracked up laughing.
|Oct-10-11|| ||Robed.Bishop: <FSR> Hard to look cool after that...|

One Sunday morning heading to church, I stopped for a cup of coffee. I never use sleeves but they put one on without me asking. Facing me, the sleeve listed the name of the coffee shop. I got to church, and walked in holding the coffee when the minister did a double take and said "What is that?" I didn't think he was taking offense to bringing coffee in, so I didn't know what he was talking about. A woman started laughing and said "Doing some advertising?"
Thoroughly confused, she said "Turn the cup around." On the other half of the sleeve, facing away from me, and toward the world, was an ad for lingerie. It featured a pretty and rather amply endowed blonde. I didn't mind too much, not enough laughter in the world, but still a bit embarrassing.

The level of misappropriation can be remarkable. For instance, our feature article Books about Fischer and Kasparov has frequently been lifted en bloc, sometimes even without attribution.
We wonder too when a certain Canadian grandmaster will remove from his website our copyrighted material, including the 2,000-word article A Catastrophic Encyclopedia.>
|Dec-26-12|| ||waustad: As <ray_keene> said: <for years i thought he was a crusty old gent ( like me now) not a kid! ( well hes not a kid any more but hes younger than me!!)> That's exactly my take on it. I had no idea he was still in his 50s.|
|Dec-26-12|| ||TheFocus: Hmmm. I have 2-3 more books that he has translated to English. Will get the exact titles and add them to his bio.|
And in case he drops in and sees this - Have a Happy New Year Mr. Winter! I check out <Chess Notes> every day!
|Mar-03-13|| ||Ron: Edward Winter had an article in chessbase about hypermodernism:
On the one hand, Winter spent a liitle time focusing on the use of the word 'hypermodern', which, I don't find worthwhile. But the thrust of the article is about those who anticipated hypermodern play, which, I feel is the sort of thing chess historians SHOULD be doing.
I suggest that another precursor to hypermodernism was Steinitz. In this game, he played the Advance Variation against the French, and over protected E5:
Steinitz vs Showalter, 1898
