|Jul-27-07|| ||chesstoplay: Hi.. no, I'm not chess2play on ICC, but I do, of course, like the name!!|
I rarely play except against computer programs late at night when I'm trying to fall asleep.
Most of what I do is on the business organizational front and endless administrative chess related "stuff".
My passion is to teach and keep creating more chess for everyone.
Your friend in chess,
Peter / chesstoplay
|Mar-12-08|| ||Shams: hey <Joshka>-- you know what? you were right about Mickey Rourke. He is pretty good. I stand corrected. After I shot my mouth off I decided to rent 9 1/2 weeks. I quite liked it.|
|Apr-18-09|| ||Joshka: Hey dad, just to let ya know, you are still loved and missed by all very, very much. Took Evan out today with Larry to help him with his driving test, he can do it, just needs a little patience. If you're in cahoots with the "driving Angel"....make sure he or she is reminded that he goes for his test Friday, the 24th. The old house you built is still holding up just fine, it never ceases to amaze me how ya did it! But I'm so thankfull you did!:-).....I'm not all too sure you'll get this, but hoping you do......it's written, these cyber air/waves, or whatever....are controlled by "the prince and power of the air"....but all is still a mystery for us all still around down here. Again, this day reminded me of you, and just to let you know, when we gathered at Sues's house after the funeral, the phone did ring loud and clear! Sorry we didn't pick it up in time!;-)....I know you are in peace......love always Bruce|
|Apr-28-09|| ||hackmate: Hello Bruce,

|Aug-21-09|| ||SugarDom: Yes, it's kind of common for Filipinos with Chinese background....|
Probably no relations.

|Nov-12-09|| ||timhortons: joshka id seen the photo of bobby's daughter posted at chessbase.|

|Feb-14-10|| ||spawn2: <Joshka>
Yes, I live in the Philippines. Had the privilege of rubbing elbows with some of the GMs from the Philippines who were all nice guys.
|Oct-06-11|| ||JoergWalter: <timhortons> my filipino friend Angel used to say :"Oh, looks like your neighbour".|
|Oct-18-11|| ||JoergWalter: Hi <Joshka> the date doesn't work for the search function either (on Johnny Carson). maybe the erased the show?|
|Oct-18-11|| ||Joshka: <JoergWalter> It seems like they change the way the dates are inserted to find which date one wants ...for today I had to put in the year first.....1972-11-08....yesterday I had to put in the month first......11-08-1972....but Seg #10 Guest Interview you see Bobby sitting there right next to Carson and then Seg #11 is a commercial, and Bobby there again for Seg # 12.|
|Oct-18-11|| ||JoergWalter: Thanks <Joshka> it worked. great stuff. Will give the link to <JessicaFischerQueen> who is doing a fantastic job on chess history.|
|Oct-19-11|| ||Joshka: <JoergWalter) great glad it worked for ya!!!|
|Jan-14-12|| ||Phony Benoni: <Joshka> Sorry, but I can't seem to find information as to the actual site of the 1957 US Open in Cleveland. One possible suggest: if you have from CD-ROM from USCF containing the issues of Chess Life and Chess Review, go through the early issues of 1957 and see if you can find an ad for the tournament. That should mention the site.|
By the way, you may have noticed that I had two alternate crosstables for the 1957 US Open in the collection. I have now removed one, and feel the correct one is left.
|Jun-22-12|| ||I play the Fred: Hey <Joshka>, thanks for the invite. I'm on FICS right now.|
|Feb-14-13|| ||juan31: joshka: i read years a go a note in a spanish magazine of chess writen for a GM from Spain ( i go to try to find the isue and the name of the magazine) he talk of a "guest" that "play out of this galaxy" in internet this master and some friend make a analisis whit computers of some games of this "guest" and concluded, not was a program, one day they ask "who are you?" to the guest and only respond a "excentric player" i dont now if was o not true, but he thing that this "guest" was GMI of chess R. J. Fischer|
|Feb-20-13|| ||Phony Benoni: <Joshka> On another page some time ago, you asked about tournament pages for the Lone Pine events. We finally have one: |
Lone Pine (1975)
By far the biggest hang-up for these (and many other tournaments) is the unavailabliity for specific dates for individual rounds. You'd think that information would be routinely available, but it's not. I have the Lone Pine bulletins for 1978, 1979, and 1980, but there is not a single round date to be found.
This is important because the game list on the tournament pages is arranged by date of the game. Without dates, the order of games is somewhat random.
A few tournaments have been pushed through without dates, but we much prefer to have them if at all possible.
By the way, the Lone Pine tournaments were never all-GM tournaments, nor where they designed to be. The main goal was to give U.S. masters, particularly juniors, a chance to meet international-level competition. In later years, they were altered to provide title norm chances for U.S. players.
|Feb-24-13|| ||Benzol: <Joshka> Something to keep you going for a wee while
Lone Pine (1979)
|Mar-30-13|| ||talisman: <Joshka> left you a baseball note on my forum. thanks.|
|Aug-24-14|| ||offramp: < Joshka:... Check out the latest game from that Euro team tourney Kasparov-Adams...a VERY exciting draw in a Nimzo. Both players were walking the tight-rope!>|
I wish you'd provide a link as I can't find this game.
|Dec-24-14|| ||kardopov: Merry Christmas Joshka.|
|Dec-25-14|| ||Joshka: Thank you, same to you <kardopov>!|
|Dec-25-14|| ||wordfunph: <Joshka> Merry Christmas!|
|Dec-25-15|| ||wordfunph: <Joshka> Happy Christmas!|
