|Jul-10-12|| ||MarkFinan: No! You're alive and well you crazy fool..
Does one person actually believe a word you say??
Speak soon <Thefocus> ;)
|Jul-10-12|| ||parisattack: <TheFocus> is very much alive. Else, his ghost is providing me updates on his important and ongoing chess research.|
|Jul-10-12|| ||Shams: <<TheFocus> is very much alive.> Well, he always said he was two people, right? Maybe one is alive and one is not. Like Schroedinger's famous feline, <TheFocus> now exists in a live/dead superposition.|

Good to know..Lets not make jokes about it please
|Jul-11-12|| ||Shams: I regret my comment, which was in poor taste. Health to you, <TheFocus>.|
|Jul-11-12|| ||SimonWebbsTiger: It was 40 years ago today
Bobby Fischer taught the world to play
He's been going in and out of style
But guaranteed to raise a smile
So let me introduce to you
RJ Fischer's Reykjavik Match Band
(apologies to the Beatles)
40th anniversary since the first game of Fischer-Spassky, 1972
|Jul-11-12|| ||Eggman: <<STW>>, you seem to have forgotten the line "the band you've known for all these years ..."|
|Jul-11-12|| ||Joshka: Seeing the moves from the match in our daily local newspaper from 40 years ago, really opened the door for folks like me. The only things written about chess back in those days were two move problems to solve. But having the complete score from move one to go thru, really allowed folks for the first time to see what this game is all about. Before knowing notation, I had always thought chess was just way to complicated to learn, but was so surprised when I discovered how easily it was to figure out the moves. Was working part time in a warehouse, and the guys at work would pull out the news clippings and make the moves on a chess board someone had brought in. We'd be astonished that we could recreate a championship game right from the start!!|

There is, indeed, a Schroedinger's Cat aspect to my good friend <TheFocus>! I believe there is also some quantum entanglement between <TheFocus> and <Bobby Fischer> now.
|Jul-11-12|| ||MarkFinan: <Eggman> "The ACT you've known for all these years"..|
<parisattack> If <Thefocus> Is dead.... Who changed his bio ??
And If he's still sending you his Bobby Fischer homework... Who changed his bio ??
Another <Thefocus> lie, exposed!
BTW... Who changed his bio ?? Lol
|Jul-11-12|| ||JoergWalter: <Mark> maybe it is all about the living dead? However, I appreciate a lot of the input of <TheFocus>. he was very keen and knowledgeable. Another guy I miss is <DrMal>. <Perfidious>, a dedicated <trooper> is seemingly out of this universe.|
|Jul-11-12|| ||Kolyas: Parisattack says TheFocus is alive. The bio says Akiva Berlinski is dead. So maybe there are two Focuses and one is dead and one is alive. That makes sense to me. But common sense will always baffle Mark. Parisattack, which one is dead? Which one is alive? And will he return?|
|Jul-11-12|| ||Petrosianic: I think it means that that Internet identity is "dead", not either one of the actual people who posted under that name.|
|Jul-11-12|| ||parisattack: <Kolyas:>
<TheFocus> (His real name was on his Forum summary for quite some time) is alive and (reasonably) well. Akiva passed away last month.
I cannot speak for him but I think <TheFocus> will return to CG.com someday. He is hard-at-work on his chess research projects at this time.
|Jul-11-12|| ||JoergWalter: <parisattack> is Akiva Berlinsky the guy with the health problems which forced him to leave the site temporarily in the past?|
|Jul-11-12|| ||MarkFinan: Hey <JW> was beginning to wander what had happened to you?? Hope all Is well, my fellow Justified trooper ;)..
And screw <Thefocus>, he was a weak link lol
i miss <DrMal> too, he was a top bloke and helpful guy, and <perfidious> Is back, but he's here under another name and may not want me to say anything, so I'll keep my mouth shut :)|
Now then <TheKolyass>!.. Why do you always defend/worship <Thefocus>??
Anyone who can't see you're him Is thick!! I'll say that once more..
So now you've faked your own death, yet your mate <parisattack> has Inadvertantly dropped you In It !! Lol..
Get a life mate, you make Harry look like a genius LOL..
You always pop up everytime Thefocus dissapears with some mystery Illness, well this time It appears someone's logged Into his account to Inform us that a long since forgotten member (thats you BTW... Thefocus/kolyas/greengrass) has died, and here you are again!! Haha...
You're a complete fool <Thefocus>, now get back to your Bobby Fischer homework.. And If you want sympathy, you'll get none from me, or most people here, after what you've tried to pull !!
To put It nicely..... You're a complete Berk haha
|Jul-11-12|| ||tpstar: That's great how <TheFocus> is still around, however <lamont> may have died again.|
|Jul-11-12|| ||Kolyas: Mark, obviously you cannot read very well, but no one ever gave you credit for being smart. Now, you just look like a fool. Is this because TheFocus was so mean to you when you were Lennonfan? Your obsession about him is bordering on lunacy. Perhaps you should see a shrink.|
|Jul-11-12|| ||JoergWalter: <mark> thanks for caring. I'm still around but took a break so my next ban from cg is already compensated for. I agree with you that <harrylimelight> will even make a unicell look like a genius. However, I was not aware about your argument with <TheFocus>. For my part it is more than fair to say that I've learned quite a bit from his contributions. Your experience may be different but I'm sure you'll sort it out with him.|
|Jul-11-12|| ||MarkFinan: Kolyas... Yes Its because you picked on poor Lennonfan (thats me BTW ;) )..|
It must all be getting confusing for Kolyas...Thefocus...Greengrass... Lamont.... Parisattack.... Akiva(RIP)... Nicolai..
What a crazy man you are...
We need Scooby doo and the rest of his crazy gang to unmask the real <Thefocus> hahaha..
Will the Real <Thefocus> please stand up?? We're gonna have a problem here!!
Oh please stop..... I'm laughing so much :)
|Jul-11-12|| ||Kolyas: Mark, you are absolutely crazy. And your act is getting a little bit boring. Every time I post, you start on about your eternal boogey-man TheFocus. I am tired of hearing it. Stop harassing me, you low-life bitch.|
|Jul-11-12|| ||MarkFinan: <Thekolyass> You came to Inform us of your death first!! .. Touchy, touchy ;)..|
I really couldn't care less about you, I just laugh because you keep making a fool of 'yourselves', and NOBODY believes you!!
But you still keep going on LOL
Anyway RIP <Thefocus>.... At least this time you can't possibly come back!
Faking your own death!!!
See yer later Thekolyass ;)
|Jul-11-12|| ||parisattack: <tpstar: That's great how <TheFocus> is still around, however <lamont> may have died again.>|
HeHe. Our Man Lamont has more lives than a cat. But its OK to take a breather now/again.
|Jul-11-12|| ||I play the Fred: <I really couldn't care less about you,>|
Nothing says "I don't care" like making multiple long posts about it.
|Jul-11-12|| ||Shams: <paris><But its OK to take a breather now/again.> As <lamont>'s breaks from the site seem to come in the form of deaths, perhaps we should call this "taking a non-breather."|
