|Jul-11-12|| ||voratco: <Appaz: <<voratco> And I know I am not in your ignore list either.>|
I have to clear up a little misunderstanding, caused by me because I expressed myself unclear: you, or anyone else, has never been on my ignore list - I don't use it. However, after half a life on the internet I'm getting quite good at "manually" ignoring visual noise.>
Guilty!!! You failed to do what you preached. LOL. You got caught peeking through the glass window.
Like I told you, you will never acquire the impossible, manually ignore visual noise. Give it up and have some fun sometimes. LOL.
|May-17-13|| ||The Last Straw: Hello!|
|Dec-24-13|| ||moronovich: Glædelig Jul <Appaz> !|
Nyder altid dine indlæg.

|Jan-22-14|| ||MarkFinan: Now then Mr Appaz 😃 I just wanted to thank you for the kind words about me you posted on the So page the other day. They seem to be few and far between nowadays :) I did reply, but it wasn't till the day after and you know how decent posts can get burried over there, so I wasn't sure if you'd seen my reply.. Anyways, as much as I don't like them lot I do have a kinda guilty pleasure confession... I like Wes So! I think he plays some good chess, I don't really care about his nationality in the same way I don't care about Nakamura's because I like his chess too, although I don't really like him. I think that fanboy term when describing chess players is ridiculous. I like Carlsen, I like him, his attitude, his humbleness and his chess.. But I ain't no fanboy as someone called me the other day. Anyways, I just thought id stop by and say thanks, because even though im sure we've had crossed words before, I really can see who the good and reasonable folks here are. I won't get started on who isn't, lol. |
|May-12-14|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Blocked. (Again.)
You will never learn ...
|May-14-14|| ||Appaz: Hi, everyone, sorry for the silence. Last post I read was that of <voratco>. This page is not meant to be very active, but feel free to post.|
Even you <AJ> :)
So, hello, Merry Christmas, Glædelig Jul and that <wordfunph> said, and thanks.
See you around.
|May-14-14|| ||SugarDom: For a country with ridiculous amount of money. I can't believe they are considering withdrawing from hosting the Olympiads.|
|May-14-14|| ||Appaz: I'm shocked, but still not surprised, if that is possible.|
It's embarrassing, but I wouldn't worry too much. We peasants up here are a little slow, but our pride in such things usually overcome the peasantry.
|May-15-14|| ||john barleycorn: Did it ever before happen that an olympiad was cancelled just by financial issues? Don't know but I'm sure a wealthy country with the world chapion among its citizen won't like to be the first.|
|May-15-14|| ||moronovich: <john barleycorn: Did it ever before happen that an olympiad was cancelled just by financial issues?>|
Yes.I think it was Argentina and miracously saved by Holland.
|May-15-14|| ||cro777: "Only once has FIDE faced an Olympiad host dropping out at the last minute – in 1994, when the Olympiad was moved from Athens to Moscow two months before the first pawn was pushed. That move resulted in the worst-organised Olympiad of all time."|
|May-15-14|| ||john barleycorn: thank you <moronovich> & <cro777>. I guess Norway is not facing a financial fiasco as Greece did. Somehow, I have a feeling that the olympiad as well as the title match are material for the FIDE election campaign and manipulations within.|

|Apr-14-15|| ||WinKing: Hi <Appaz>. <lostemperor> will hold his prediction contest for the Gashimov Memorial if enough members sign up. Just wanted to let you know. :)|
|Apr-18-15|| ||Shams: Hi <Appaz>! The "a" is very important. "A bandit country" vs "bandit country". The latter (without the 'a', and as <Tiggler> wrote it) just means that there is some stretch of land where there are bandits; here 'country' means something like "wilderness" and not "nation" or "state". |
Forgive a former ESL teacher this small lesson. Cheers.
|Apr-24-15|| ||Appaz: Thx, <WinKing>, but I really, really, <really> s**k at predictions. A proven point.|
<Shams> Yes, I saw his answer a little later and realized I had misread his first post, but I left it there.
I'm quite fascinated by Armenia in several ways, so that's probably why I stepped up as a wanna-be valiant knight on their behalf :)
I appreciate your lecture, you made me a tiny bit more knowledgeable, so no forgiveness given or needed.
