chessgames.com: There was some earlier confusion over where to best begin this puzzle. The best point is what we show now, 25...?

chessgames.com: We'd like to apologize for the scheduling mishap with the Carlsen vs Kramnik, 2016 game today. The scheduler failed to activate at the proper time. Daniel has located a typo introduced a few weeks back and believes this problem has been fixed. The remainder of the tournament ...

chessgames.com: There was a schedule problem with today's puzzle. Two different puzzles (one of them completely meaningless) were temporarily shown before we got it right. This is truly today's puzzle. In spite of appearances it's not a repeat: we used it before on move 27...? for a simple ...

  offramp: <chesgames.com> There is so much trouble that begins at either The Kibitzer's Café or at that stupid Kenneth Rogoff page.

Ask people to give reasons to keep those pages open. When they can't give them, shut both pages down.

  Annie K.: Reason: if the people who like that sort of thing didn't have those two outlets for those specific purposes, you'd have those kinds of interactions all over the site instead. Not an improvement.

The Rogoff page doesn't appear in the Recent Kibitzing. Improvement. :)

<Annie K> - < Reason: if the people who like that sort of thing didn't have those two outlets for those specific purposes, you'd have those kinds of interactions all over the site instead. Not an improvement.>

Oh, definitely not an improvement. A demolishment, probably. We should encourage the intellectually challenged to use their little outlets, so the rest of us can get on with the business of doing whatever it is that we do.

Even if what we do is nothing.

  Domdaniel: <Alien Math> Well done for being the first to see that I. Makoveev was in trouble for allegedly cheating in Moscow.

I also note that your English is much more fluent now. Congratulations to you, and all in Alaska.

As for that archipelago in the Pacific: I know some very nice people who come from that place. Yet it seems that the ones on this site tend to be strange. Or difficult.

Not just a note but a full chord of condescension. That's rare from you.

  Domdaniel: <Shams> True. But the context demanded it.

  Shams: "I make no claim to have controlled my tone but rather confess plainly that it has controlled me." Whatever, we deserve it.

<Annie K> is quite right. As they say in Zen practice, the way to control your animal is to give it a yard in which to play.

  User not found: If I fall under the "intellectually challenged" (!?) I'd gladly go post in my forum about football and The Beatles all day. But would you want to miss a cheeky 'lol lol lol' from Hazzarinho? A swift condescending 'I'm *better* than you' from Abdel? A photo of your childhood pet boiling in a pan from Keyser Soze? Cmo'n guys be fair, these people aren't the kind who can integrate into their real live communities, chessgames makes them tough guys.

And on a serious note. The Rogoff page needs to go. All you need to do is check on twitter to see someone has been reporting this site to the FBI for what gets said there. The cafe's okay.. You'll all be lolling with Harry at Xmas. :)

May-24-16  zanzibar: I like both the Cafe and Rogoff... they aren't entirely the wastelands that some might think.

Maybe that's just me.

May-24-16  zanzibar: But what about this game?

E Schallopp vs Gossip, 1890

Why can't I find it in my version of <0000-1899.zip>?

  chessgames.com: <zanzibar: But what about this game? E Schallopp vs Gossip, 1890. Why can't I find it in my version of <0000-1899.zip>?> That's very odd. I can think of two or three possible reasons but they are sound extremely unlikely. The first idea that came to my mind is that it used to be labeled as 1900 and recently a correction slip fixed it. Please take no offense that I have not completely written off the possibility that it's in the file and you missed it somehow. Or there might be some very subtle bug that's been in action for many many years that you've just uncovered now.

  SwitchingQuylthulg: Schallopp vs Gossip (game #1228458) is included in the latest version of 0000-1899.zip; but until very recently, it was in 1900-1909.zip. #1228458 was the game with the weird bug (fixed in April) that caused it to be labeled "1900" even though the date "1890.08.29" was given in the PGN; and that bug also meant it was included in the wrong .zip file.
