  Robed.Bishop: Well, I used the phrase "naked breast" and everyone came running in.

  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.

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.

Aug-27-12  I play the Fred: <A reminder should hardly be necessary, but readers are requested not to help themselves to whatever they please on the Chess Notes pages.

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.>

  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.

  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!

  Ron: Edward Winter had an article in chessbase about hypermodernism: http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail...

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

<The worst exponents are unmasked and dismantled with penetrating precision, stylish takedowns, and, the most damaging ammunition of all, irrefutable facts.>

  TheFocus: Switzerland was the address on the package when I ordered some books from him.
Apr-19-14  RedShield: I'm sure there are lots of people on chess.com who live in Switzerland. Why is this news?

  TheFocus: We would have to ask <Conrad93> why it is news.

<Conrad>?

Apr-20-14  Conrad93: Where did this biography come from?

What is it from chesshistory.com?
