|Dec-13-09|| ||dakgootje: Heh, I had come up with all kinds of weird theories; like, seeing how Anand is 40 I gathered 'maybe there have been 28 other 40-year olds playing at a certain level before him' and thus looking for his first game as a 40+'er. Or the one where I noticed there had been 40 Chess Olympiads (including 2 initial unofficial ones); thus looking for which country came in First in the 29th olympiad and looking through all those games...|
Oh the fun I had...

|Mar-23-10|| ||Honza Cervenka: Hi MAJ,
I don’t know whether you have read my recent messages at Kibitzer’s Café or not and so I am posting it here too. On Monday of last week I have become proud father of (the second) daughter named Aneta. You can see her picture on the site of regional newspaper “Kladensky denik” (Kladno’s Daily) at http://kladensky.denik.cz/miminka/m... where is just now till this Friday (12:00 A.M. CET) running a polling contest for the most sympathetic baby born last week in regional maternity hospitals organized by the newspaper. Personally I am not much interested in such a kind of competitions but my wife likes it very much and she would be much happy to see our little girl on the top. Right now we are on the second place in very tense and close race with two other contenders and so every additional vote is very important for the final outcome. If you would like to help me to make my wife even happier than she already is now, just click on the link above, flag “Aneta Cervenkova, Stredokluky” (the first name in gray box on the right side on the screen) and hit the “hlasovat” button below. It is possible to vote repeatedly always after 60 minutes from one IP address... :-D
Thanks and warm regards, Honza

Overworked -- not much time for chess.
Just stopped by to pick up some stuff for Christmas :-)
|Dec-14-10|| ||technical draw: Hi, <MAJ>. I like the mostly average title of your forum.|
|Dec-15-10|| ||SamAtoms1980: Nice work on #26. I knew in a second that it was an anagram. Was trying to work with Vernon and something. Didn't think of NN.|
|Dec-24-10|| ||BVer: <MAJ> two clues left and I have one more to make five! I don't think I can catch you but will try....you are my holiday hunt hero!|
|Dec-24-10|| ||MostlyAverageJoe: Hey, good luck, <BVer>!|
|Dec-25-10|| ||al wazir: <MAJ>: I just now noticed your post in my forum (which is currently away on sabbatical), viz., <In reference to your post at Kibitzer's Café -- what exactly is your problem with my answer to <PB>?>|
I don't know what post you're referring to, unless it's the one about pythons and pigs. There was no problem. I think I posted that after you had won your fifth holiday present. I was trying in my sardonic way to acknowledge your mastery. You originally said that you were "just stopping by to pick up some stuff for xmas," and then you proceeded to make good your boast -- except that you stayed around for a while after picking up the stuff.
|Dec-31-10|| ||technical draw: Happy new year 2011, <MAJ>!!|
(It took me a while to see the difference in the spelling of Chelm. Now I have to figure out how to write that strange L with my mac.)
|Dec-31-10|| ||technical draw: Got it <MAJ>, thanks....|
|Jan-17-11|| ||jessicafischerqueen: Hello <MostlyAverageJoe>!|
Sorry to interrupt, but on a "heads up" from <switching owls for thugs> I was hoping you could help me with some Polish pronunciation.
How would a Polish person pronounce:
If you could help me on this I'd be very grateful.

Call for Aneta’s voters! Vote early, vote often!
Dear chess friends! Great final poll of regional daily KLADENSKY DENIK for the most sympathetic baby of year 2010 has started and my little girl needs your support again. The poll is running since January 22, 12.00 CET, till February 5, 12.00 CET. The rules are the same as the last time, i.e. it is possible to send one vote after every 60 minutes from one IP address. If you want to support Aneta, just click on http://kladensky.denik.cz/miminka/m..., flag the name <Aneta Červenková> in the grey box on the right side of the screen and hit the <hlasovat> button below. If you see a notification “Děkujeme za váš hlas” (Thank you for your vote) after that, then you have voted successfully. And if you see a notification “Došlo k opakovanému hlasování” (Repeated voting has occurred), then you should try to vote a bit later again....:-D

We are losing the race with a great favourite Alex Loukota. Despite of getting in just two days more votes than in both previous one week long rounds the gap between leader and our girl is widening more and more. They are ahead of us for more than one thousand votes now. Your help is much needed! If you want to support Aneta, just click on http://kladensky.denik.cz/miminka/m..., flag the name <Aneta Červenková> in the grey box on the right side of the screen and hit the <hlasovat> button below. If you see a notification “Děkujeme za váš hlas” (Thank you for your vote) after that, then you have voted successfully.

|Dec-17-12|| ||BVer: well done on the ID average one, very fast. Dumb question - knowing the game, where/how do you find the ID? I have only gone ID => game when clue hunting!|
|Dec-17-12|| ||BVer: never mind, figured it out....duh.|
