MissScarlett: <Hazz>, we ought to start a book club together - maybe it'd help to keep the riff-raff here at bay. I've been reading David Lawson's <Paul Morphy: The Pride and Sorrow of Chess>. For years that book was almost impossible to get hold of; now you can download it on ...
   Apr-18-18 Marshall vs Duras, 1913 (replies)
MissScarlett: Felicitous use is made of the <Search Kibitzing> facility; it's strange, sometimes I have dim memories of discussions that took place before I even joined the site.
   Apr-17-18 chessforum (replies)
MissScarlett: <With regards to Olimpbase: Forgive my ignorance, but is there a repository for their PGN?> There are PGN zip files for each event. They're available on the RHS of the respective competition pages, e.g. Men's Olympiads.

MissScarlett: A useful resource for 19th century English chess, especially as Britbase rolls out the records of the Varsity chess matches:
   Apr-16-18 Kelly / Bateman vs Lasker / Brodsky, 1908
MissScarlett: Bateman is most likely <Harry Bateman> who hailed from Manchester: Kelly may well be Thomas J Kelly
   Apr-16-18 Monte Carlo (1902)
MissScarlett: Reggio vs Teichmann, 1902 - This game has eluded inclusion.
   Apr-15-18 Rotlewi vs Jacques Davidson, 1911 (replies)
MissScarlett: This must be Jacques Davidson , but I'm holding off submitting a correction until I can upload an authentic game of the <Prostitutes’ Padre>.

MissScarlett: Linlithgowshire Gazette, July 4th 1930, p.8: <Last week, in speaking of the B.C.F. Congress at Scarborough, we quoted from a local paper saying, “One of the most romantic figures at the tournament will be the turbaned Mir Sultan Khan.” It turns out, however, that for this ...

MissScarlett: Now I'm up to speed with the English Chess Forum discussion about this game. The link won't post properly for some reason. There's no need to post the full score of submitted games.

  MissScarlett: <I took up a collection for you. No one wants to lose the best poster on the site, do we?>

I'm beginning to like you - and that's a rarity on this site. Clearly, a poster of discernment and sagacity.

Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: I like many of the puns you have suggested.

Unfortunately, and God knows why, is only accepting puns from one source at the moment.

His puns are of the most obvious, knee-jerk reaction type. It is like a recovering stroke victim being given a word association test:

"I want you to say the first thing that pops into your head..."
"Alekhine vs W Lamb, 1929."
"Sacrificial lamb."
"K Tjolsen vs S Marder, 2010?"
"Marder She Wrote."
"Capablanca vs M Fox, 1919?"
Etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc.

  zanzibar: Ooh, <offramp> is steaming.

But yes, <Missy> is boxing clever on punning fun-ing.

(What's the etymology/phrasemology of "boxing clever"?)

Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: A pun a day, for 15 years...yeah, they have to go the obvious route a lot.
Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: <zanzibar: Ooh, <offramp> is steaming>

You have correctly gauged my feelings. I've got a list of 110 puns that will never be used because hoi polloi would never ever vote for them.

The puns are too clever. BUT when I say clever I mean totally dimwitted but 100% better than the rubbish we've been seeing.

Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: I just leave my ideas as Easter Eggs all over the site. Once or twice cg.c has stumbled upon them and used them.
Premium Chessgames Member
  zanzibar: <offramp> - I think perhaps the pun should be a user selectable option, so that one could at least have the option of turning them off.

Oh well, I always think <CG> spans the spectrum - from the sublime to the absurd.
