   Oct-25-16 Short - Hou (2016) (replies)
Absentee: This match was held more for show than anything else. There was nothing at stake. But Short sure seems to care about those 3 points!
   Oct-24-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016) (replies)
Absentee: I reckon he meant equal chance at participating, not equal odds of winning it.
   Oct-19-16 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
Absentee: <HeMateMe: Why can't we do that in the USA?> Probably because Norway's population density is less than half of the US's. <MissScarlett: <Small, homogeneous population.> You mean, like Haiti? I think you're missing an important element.> Haiti has the 7th highest ...
   Oct-18-16 Deep Blue vs Kasparov, 1997
Absentee: <Mendrys: <WorstPlayerEver: <Mendrys> Really? So why they dismantled DB? To destroy the evidence. What else? DB team just put a psychological trick on Kasparov.> If that were true, which it is not - One bank is at the National Museum of American History while the ...

Absentee: <Tiggler: ... Don't get me started on Robert Fischer, though. That guy was the biggest scumbag ever to sit at a chessboard, and I can prove it a hundred different ways.> Go ahead.
   Sep-07-16 Computer (replies)
Absentee: <Appaz: <<Absentee> Linux and BSD are better than Windows.> That depends on what you are going to use it for. As a desktop OS the different GNU/Linux distributions suck big time compared to OSX and Windows. The different GUI options are unstable, too heavy and even ...
   Aug-26-16 G Key (replies)
Absentee: <Pulo y Gata: Vincent's paintings are required reading at schools?> Braille schools, sure, if the paint's grainy enough.
   Aug-22-16 Sinquefield Cup (2016) (replies)
Absentee: <activechess55: the ability to concentrate on a single topic for a prolonged period, is one of the prerequisites of success.> Who would have thought?
   Aug-09-16 Anand vs W So, 2016 (replies)
Absentee: <offramp: Did you know that Wesley So has both a mother and a father?> Didn't he use to have two moms? What happened to the other one?
