Member since Sep-02-10 · Last seen Jan-03-15 A must view! for any interested in history of attacking genius Rashid Nezhmetdinov by <jessicafisherqueen> <3 Bon Jovi songs! and Whitesnake! I was born in the wrong era!

"My System" and "Chess Praxis" might not be perfect (heresy some might say), they both immerse you into the world of Chess and provide a means to understand how the game works.

Alexandra Kosteniuk (The ChessQueen) Is my favorite player!

  jessicafischerqueen: Offer condolence for your recent news you sent me on youtube.

Don't worry about musical selections I like them all, even the ones I don't like. Take care of yourself first and all else after.

Also, "toes go in first" LOLOL

What a great principle to live by, thank you.

Premium Chessgames Member
  jessicafischerqueen: Offer thanks for the wonderful <Ennio Motorcycle> and the <Hilary T<<<hanh>>>> music!

I think you should sue her for using part of your name in her name.

If you need a good lawyer, try <hms123>. He normally specializes in fish-related cases (he will work for scale), but he's also landed some prize-winning copyright cases for me.

He has successfully sued <Boomie> and <Crawfb5> so far, and that's just counting people at

Anyways I'm delighted to have more of your musical selections coming into my forum.

  jessicafischerqueen: Jinx!

I was just going to look for you to make a post and I saw your civil war post.

Thanks for that- I 'll read it in a second.

I did want to ask you if you've noticed anyone complaining about frozen youtube counts again?

All three of my chess channels have had frozen counts for over 24 hours now. I just posted a complaint on the HELP forum, and one person already replied they had the same problem.

If you see anything on this, please send me the link?

Merry Christmas!

  jessicafischerqueen: Oh also thanks for those security tips from you and your sisters.

I did the Yahoo BLOCKING technique and it worked except one weasel keeps getting through with her spam friend invites.

I also tried the "de-linked GOOBLE" search and it does make a difference.

On that topic-

Do you know that my computer has started showing a chess avatar when I go to my "start menu"?

It didn't before, and I didn't upload the icon.

That means my computer "knew" that 99 percent of my searches are on chess, and my computer gave me a chess icon by itself.

It better not start telling me what to do or I'll take a hammer to it.

Premium Chessgames Member
  jessicafischerqueen: Thanks for more computer links!

Also, yes please if you can find any current discussion of view counts freezing. Mine is still not moving.

Premium Chessgames Member
  jessicafischerqueen: <Thanh> offer thanks for your help and new links today, and to let you know-

I got two replies from the youtube help thread I started today, and I was right, some people had their view counts frozen starting from Dec. 7, which is when my accounts froze too.

Happily, they now appear to be unfrozen, and I'm estimating that I got back my normal amount of view counts I should have gotten.

QUESTION: What do you think of the new Channel Design?

It's a version they beta tested a month or so ago but they called it COSMIC PANDA, but now I think they dropped the name.

I don't mind it myself, except that I can't figure out how to see

1.My channel visit count
2. My list of subscribers
3. My list of friends
4. My list of subscriptions

Other than that, I don't see any problem with it.

I realize that no matter what feedback they get, we will all soon be forced to use the new format.

I wish they didn't change it so often, it always seems just when I figure out how to work one format they change it again. Of course it takes me a year to learn one format because I'm not a "fast learner" per se.

Dec-21-11  LIFE Master AJ: HI!!!

Several things:

#1.) First off, I just wanted to wish you a happy holidays. (Do they celebrate Christmas in China?)

#2.) I removed (un-installed) the "Yahoo Messenger" from my computer.

a.) Many times, I clicked on YM, and my computer froze up. IMO, it was poorly done or badly written.

b.) Over 100 times a night, I would get IM messages. Most of the time, it was all kinds of silliness. (Porn, ads, people trying to sell me something, SPAM, etc.) I got so tired of this nonsense, I simply removed the software from my computer.

However, the chat with your sister was one of the few bright spots in my on-line, IM experience. (FYI)

I.M. = Instant Messaging

Dec-24-11  achieve: Hi <Thanh>!

Almost embarrassed to say that I think this is my first ever visit to your forum; what a blunder!, hehe, but there is a time for everything, and coincidentally my forum may close in a few hours (memb. expiration), but I'll renew in January, prior to Wijk aan Zee (Tata Steel).

I left a response there to your very welcome and thoughtful post, but as it seems now it may only be there for a number of hours for you to read; just to let you know in advance.

So once again here: Best wishes to you and yours over the next days and for 2012! :)
