|Nov-23-15|| ||TheFocus: I post chess quotes by famous players and get criticized.|
I post chess trivia/history and get criticized.
Someone posts thousands of Bible verses and silence fills the room.
Someone posts thousands of music videos and the silence is deafening.
Seems to me that a great many posters on this site should put on their big girl panties and shut up about what I do.
|Nov-23-15|| ||Jim Bartle: I was going to tell you the quotes are great and some of the jokes are, too. But OK, I'll just shut up.|
|Nov-23-15|| ||jessicafischerqueen: |
<TheFocus> Who was criticizing you for posting chess trivia/history?
Please don't stop doing that- you have a huge library and I think the vast majority of the readers appreciate you sharing that information on the game and player pages.
|Nov-23-15|| ||OhioChessFan: <Someone posts thousands of Bible verses and silence fills the room.>|
Not true, they are commented on for it, they ignore it and so be it. And they don't regularly fill the entire first page of recent kibitzing. This is a matter of scale.
<Someone posts thousands of music videos and the silence is deafening.>
See the above.
I like the quotes although I think you go a little overboard. Some of the jokes are good. The incessant references to simuls? Meh. It strikes me as minituae, not history. It gives every appearance of wanting to build up a post count.
I disagree with <Jess> and think most people feel the same way about the simul kibitzes as I do. Maybe I'm wrong.
|Nov-23-15|| ||Karposian: <OhioChessFan: I disagree with <Jess> and think most people feel the same way about the simul kibitzes as I do. Maybe I'm wrong.>|
Yes, you're wrong.
<TheFocus>, please continue posting trivia and quotes, everything you've got. I enjoy reading your posts, and on top of that you're a pretty funny guy too!
Ignore the naysayers. There will always be those who for some (psychological?) reason feel the need to criticize other posters because they don't like their content, they disagree with their views, the topic doesn't interest them, or whatever.
Keep up the good work.
|Nov-23-15|| ||TheFocus: Thank you everyone for your comments.
I appreciate both the nays and the yeas.
|Nov-23-15|| ||TheFocus: Reposted from Capablanca vs S M Ballou, 1915:|
<Miss Scarlett> After mulling it over, I have decided to accept your advice and will stop posting stuff on Capablanca.
I am finding that Caparros has many mistakes and he is my major source.
I think you have pointed out three mistakes so far. As a big fan of Capablanca, I don't want to spread false information.
|Nov-23-15|| ||TheFocus: Rainy again for the third day in a row.
During the winter in Hawai'i, we don't tan, we rust.
|Nov-23-15|| ||TheFocus: If anyone here is into martial arts, my teacher is on the December cover of BLACK BELT Magazine. Also 2015 Black Belt Hall of Fame Self Defense Instructor of the Year.|
I come from a good lineage.
|Nov-24-15|| ||TheFocus: So far no rain. But I think winter has arrived in Hawai'i. We will probably have plenty of rain. At least it's not snow or ice or sleet.|
|Nov-24-15|| ||WannaBe: Light sprinkle here at NorCal, should turn into (heavy) rain by late today/tomorrow. Gonna be fun for the holiday travelers.|
Taking some co-workers to SFO tomorrow after work.
|Nov-24-15|| ||parisattack: Happy TGD <TheFocus>! We're headed up the hill for a few days, see you on the flip-flop.|
Enjoy your turkey or huli-huli haole, whichever tradition you follow.
|Nov-24-15|| ||TheFocus: <parisattack> I don't think huli huli haole will be served! It will have to be turkey.|
Enjoy your mountain retreat!
|Nov-24-15|| ||TheFocus: #19th to 19,000.
There must be some good luck to go with that?
|Nov-26-15|| ||TheFocus: Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! After this we can all take part in the annual holiday tradition of spending everything that we can to show our love.|
Tonight's feast, which will not be eaten until after 10:00 p.m. as the residents in the Focus apartment are working late, will be the following:
French green beans
This is the first time I am cooking everything. We'll add something new each year. Y'all stop by if you're in the neighborhood.
|Nov-27-15|| ||TheFocus: Decided to make grits also for Thanksgiving.|
|Nov-27-15|| ||TheFocus: A haiku I wrote:
Two opponents sit.
Planning battles in their minds.
Neither wins. A draw.
|Nov-27-15|| ||TheFocus: Weather is still spotty with rain. I hope it doesn't rain here this weekend. I have outside work that needs to be done.|
|Nov-28-15|| ||TheFocus: Have the weekend off but have many chores to do and many miles to go before I sleep.|
|Nov-29-15|| ||TheFocus: Putting up the beginning of the Christmas decorations and the tree today.|
Ho, ho, ho.
|Nov-29-15|| ||TheFocus: At WalMart today, I bought a box of ninja bread men. It was gingerbread but the cookie cutters were in martial arts poses.|
Looks like the icing should be black though to be ninjas.
