SamAtoms1980: Holy dang! I just found out about this. I still remember receiving that gracious note of congratulations by e-mail from Daniel for winning the chess clock in the Christmas contest in 2011. Still getting use out of that clock to this day. R.I.P. Daniel Freeman.

SamAtoms1980: <JJF: Who in the world is chrisowen and what language does he speak?> Haven't yet figured that out, but he's been doing this for a very long time and most of us are in the habit of treating him respectfully. He just might have the power to summon a winged balrog to your ...
