Appaz
Member since Jun-19-04 · Last seen Oct-22-14
Born 1968, living in Oslo, Norway.

I learned chess as a kid, and have been a member of different clubs since youth, but have never put much effort into it. To me chess is just fun, wich is probably why I have favourite players like Tal, Shirov and Morozevich.

Appaz: <<vkk> Meanwhile, Carlsen is climbing some mountain in norway which he posted about on facebook.> Not even close, it's in Switzerland - and it's more like "walking up" than "climbing".

Appaz: Last year the person Magnus Carlsen earned around € 120 000, a little more than half of that went to taxes. His fortune amounts to around € 1.4M. His company, Magnuschess AS, which channels most of his income and are owned 85% by Magnus and 15% by his father, had a operating income of

Appaz: <al wazir> Well, if you look at the spreading in Africa, "not very contagious" doesn't seem to be the case if the right precautions aren't taken. Body contact is not uncommon when traveling by plane, for example in the line while you await boarding the plane. Also, inside the ...

  Check It Out: This has been a test of the emergency broadcasting system. If this had been a real emergency...holy @#$!...run for your lives!!!!!
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.

  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.

  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.

Stinginess?

  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.

  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.

Yes.I think it was Argentina and miracously saved by Holland.

  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."

  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.
