  20MovesAhead: another GM who couldnt adjust to the COMPUTER AGE

  Dionysius1: Hi <20MovesAhead>. Why the capitals? I thought you computer boyos saw that as shouting? :-)
Nov-23-12  Shams: <20MovesAhead> I'm not sure what your comment is based on. Smagin is over fifty, for one thing, and nobody can really "adjust" for age.
