Welcome to The Cirque du Boomie where the dancers will kick your teeth out and you have unlimited credit in the casino.

-----

Feb-05-2010 - The Don said so long ago that in 5 years The Cirque would be totally legitimate. Today I see a thriving casino business and fan dancers from Yonkers. Good times!

This is the forum.
The Cirque, CG.com.
On an average day, people go about their business.
When they get out of line I go to work.
I carry a badge.

We were working out of Tactics and Swindles. My partner's name is Jessie. My name's Boomie.

The unexamined position is not worth playing.

Play ideas not moves.

A beautiful solution for which there is no problem.

Thanks for the Buurmans. Very clever stooges, eh? I watched "Fax" also. They manage to make very convincing looking cloth flapping in the wind. Quite the accomplishment.

Here's an interesting article on some of the ways scientists have tried to describe consciousness.

And the "Chessgame" somehow reminds me about once my son and I replaced all the pawns with knights and put it into the computer...And if you thought chess was complicated the old way,then...:)

  chancho: <Boomie> I seem to remember that she got a huge promotion in her accounting firm. (More responsibility less time to do other things, I suppose.)

It's too bad that she's not posting here anymore.

I found her comments memorable.

I still remember (and get a laugh) her Slim Shady rendition about a certain poster who shall remain nameless.

But such is life and change is always a part of it.

I'm glad that Deffi has been so successful. But how could she not be?

Another reason she left CG was she was being stalked by a troll. We have lost a number of users that way. For example, see Susan Polgar's last post here - Wesley So

  jessicafischerqueen:

<Teem> I came here with inquiries about <Miltie>, but saw this conversation about <Deffi>.

I didn't know about the stalking!!

You are correct that this is a major problem that needs to be stomped on.

Well I guess you didn't actually say that, but to think we lost <Deffi> partly because of that makes my blood boil.

Don Jess: I want some inquiries made...about Miltie. I want no acts of vengeance.

Cheech: What do you need to know about Uncle Miltie, Don Jesseoni? I'll do anything for my Godfather. You know that.

heh

On a related issue that you were previously discussing on the front page, <GM John Philips Szuza> made one mistake: she went into the <Szo What>, but there was no gun in the bathroom.

That's a real shame, and it can't be a proud moment for cg.com to lose her.

I get that she's a controversial figure, but the "value" of those who drove her off is questionable compared to her value to any chess site.

  chancho: Surely Susan Polgar knows that she has control of her player page and that she can always opt for the ignore feature if and when she finds some of the posters comments to be objectionable?

The debacle with the USCF is old news.

It was settled in court.

Discussing it is like re-arguing the authenticity of My 61 Memorable Games.

Let's see. Bloviating Charley Nobody or a Polgar sister. Hmmm. Tough one, huh?

Yes, that mess with the USCF does leave a bad taste. But she's not running for office here. She was a window on the world of professional chess. We don't have a lot of those here. Mammy's Little Baby Likes Short may be the last pro posting here.

I hope you're well, old sock- I emailed you a few weeks ago and then again a few days ago, so it struck me that my messages might be vanishing in your spam folder?

That said, in general I admire a man with strong handle on his spam folder. It's the strong move in most cases.

Anyways, as always, if you did get the emus no hurry on the replies. It's certainly nothing too important. I do miss you when you're gone though.

Here is a musical interlude in case you secretly wanted to her it:

Speaking of the last great "Punnff," in which you defeated perennial stalwarts such as <Big Bazoombas> and <Martinez>, did you see the gauntlet <Bazoombas> threw down in the <Crabby Biographer's Bistro>?

I will try to link it exactly for you using the "supasicrit" Search Kibbutz function.

Hang on...

Ok got it. <Big's> pun was in the context of our <zanzibar> and his unsuspecting idea to use "NWUR - Name withheld upon request" as an alternative to "NN."

<Big> hits it out of the park:
