"Alas! The truth of that prophecy spoken long ago is fulfilled! <Telemus>, the seer, son of Eurymus, a tall fine man, lived here once, the greatest of prophets, and grew old here as soothsayer among the Cyclopes. He told me that all of this would come to pass one day, and I would lose my sight at Odysseus’ hands."

— Homer, Odyssey, book ix (

Some of my postings result from software tests I do for someone else.

Telemus: From the introduction: <The tournament itself would later be heralded as the strongest of the 19th century, if not all time.> Compare this with this sentence from the introduction of Hastings (1895) <In 1895 the club organized a tournament (1) that was the strongest ever ...

   Sep-22-19 Cortlever vs H Kramer, 1953

Telemus: All five games here were played by "K. Appunn" ( K Appunn ?) according to DSZ. 1904: pages 195, 249 and 381. 1905: pages 255, 260, 261 and 380. But beware: obvious conclusions are wrong here! And once this is understood, 1970 as year of birth as in ...
   Jul-20-19 Berthold Lasker (replies)
Telemus: The text is almost complete. Earlier this year, in occasion of Lasker-Schüler's 150th birthday, another aspect of this paternity was emphasized: Lasker recognized this child as his, though he knew he was not the father (German radio).
