|Apr-16-05|| ||Karpova: This guy had a long career.
seems like he needed some rest after the dsb-04 kongress.
|Apr-16-05|| ||fgh: 120 years :) |
|Apr-16-05|| ||BishopBerkeley: Houdini's real name was Ehrich Weiss:
(: Bishop Berkeley :)
|Apr-16-05|| ||Karpova: he played 0,125 games per year. this guy is lazy. |
|Apr-16-05|| ||Calli: Well, the first two games are Max Weiss |
|Apr-16-05|| ||Karpova: <calli> did you report that to chessgames.com? |
|Apr-16-05|| ||Calli: Yes, Mrs Karpov |
|Apr-16-05|| ||Karpova: <calli>
i'm not Mrs. Karpov :-)
choosing this name was still well considered
|Apr-16-05|| ||Calli: Ah they already fixed it.
Chessgames Rule 3 for names:
"Do not name yourself after a famous living chessplayer (unless you are really him or her!) ..."
Just adding a feminine ending still violates this rule, IMHO.
|Apr-16-05|| ||Karpova: <Calli>
in your opninion only.
nobody would ever consider me to be tolya.
<chessgames.com> seems to be the same opinion as i am.
|Apr-16-05|| ||Calli: Okay you can continue your female impersonation, but I would hate to see the website populated with the wives and daughters of famous players. |
|Apr-17-05|| ||Karpova: <Okay you can continue your female impersonation>|
Thank you very much. You are so gracious!
<Chessgames Rule 3 for names:
"Do not name yourself after a famous living chessplayer (unless you are really him or her!) ...">
i didn't know karpov's wife was a famous living chessplayer, btw. did he marry kosteniuk while nobody was watching?
<but I would hate to see the website populated with the wives and daughters of famous players.>
that's the point. it's all about you. nobody ever took offence at my name but you. but that's the fault of everybody else in here who doesn't care for every pettiness like you do...
|Apr-17-05|| ||tpstar: 1) I would love to see the website populated with the wives and daughters of famous players.|
2) Okay I won't continue my female impersonation.
Weiss Weiss Baby ;>D
|Apr-18-05|| ||Minor Piece Activity: What happened to karpova?? :-/ A bit 1984-ish here. |

|Apr-19-05|| ||Karpova: <Minor Piece Activity>|

seems like it was connected to the server crash but now everything is fine again.
|Jan-24-09|| ||WhiteRook48: this guy is very old|
|Feb-06-09|| ||WhiteRook48: he played less than 0.1 games a year, he should get a life as a GM|
|May-11-09|| ||whiteshark: All 1981/1982 German Bundesliga games belong to <Siegfried Weiss>. He played for the <SKJE> team from Hamburg.|
