WannaBe: If, white decides to put a knight on e4, will it be the c- or the d-knight? If d-knight, it will leave the d-column open.

  WannaBe: This should, <SHOULD>, put an end to the Theranos saga, but man, what a story it was...

Sep-15-18  JimNorCal: An interesting sidelight on Theranos.
Fusion GPS used its skillz to protect the company.

  WannaBe: Newest iPhones have poor Wifi and cell signal:

Errr...... Were these models tested?? In US or in China??

  Keyser Soze: No wonder I'm happy with Android and Samsung prices.
Sep-25-18  TheFocus: <WannaBe: I have never, ever, never, heard of isochronous curve!!>

I subscribed to that channel last week just because of that video! Very cool.

  WannaBe: Call me slow, but I just found out the song "That's not my name" is by a dual/group named Ting Tings...

Wonder how many Chinese are out there protesting about this.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Never knew, that if you live in Manhattan, you don't need a water tower (4:30 mark):

Dr. Neil d. Tyson, you are the bomb!!! Luv ya.

  chancho: I think I already mentioned this a while back.

When I use the Search Kibitzing feature, it shows me a box with names of previous searches.

I type a word and the list disappears, but upon clicking on the box with the new word, the damn list pops up again.

I right click to get rid of it, and another box appears which I right click and that box also disappears.

I now just click on the box without writing anything on it, and it sends me to another page also named search kibitzing with a hand holding a magnifying glass.

I can type whatever on that box and no pop ups.

This crap was not happening years ago.

  WannaBe: Bless you, Neil Tyson. Pun intended!

  WannaBe: Latest java 8 update 191 works good with CVD II


Oct-17-18  Boomie: <WannaBe: Latest java 8 update...>

Makes you wonder when Microbeast is going to stop its idiot war against Oracle. I mean if there was any serious problem with Java security, the whole world would implode. Why don't they have the cohones to admit that this is just a tantrum because Oracle crushed them in databases?

  WannaBe: Just found out about this new thing, sphere/globe chess:

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: I can't wait for "Bohemian Rhapsody" movie on Queen.

Big fan of them...

  Keyser Soze: <wannabe> You might like the book " Somebody to Love: The Life, Death and Legacy of Freddie Mercury".

Just read fews months ago. Very focused on his illness, and how affected him, showing basically that he fought against the disease since half of his career (since around 82). Tough but nice reading.

  WannaBe: To <Open Defence>:

Since you introduced me to the Christopher Walken video of Weapon of Choice, I found this one.

It may not be very recent, but I just want to return the favour and share it.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Trekkies only, there's nothing like a full orchestral score for a movie, or a big scene, or climax.

(hehehe... I said climax

Star Trek probably did it better than anyone else, the only other one I can possibly want to mention is Star Wars and composer John Williams):

I just learned, via google, that he was born in Tanzania!

I am shocked! I of course assumed he was American.
