Open for business -- well, sort of.

I finally renewed my membership, and I am popping in fairly often, but life outside CG is still busy, so my visits are usually brief. No big or long projects for me for at least the short term future.

crawfb5: <z> Maybe I'm not the best one to ask. I'm a huge fan. Here she covers James Taylor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=83w... Although now that I think of it, the admins might prefer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1SC...

crawfb5: <z> I see you finally got your avatar. Good thing it is an old goat. If it'd been a young one, we'd think you were just kidding.

crawfb5: Hello, not here much these days, but I see you were discussing Moscow 1937. RusBase ( http://al20102007.narod.ru/ ) has only 10 of the 28 games (the site says 10 of 56, but they list both Fine and Yudovich as two players each). Woodger's bio of Fine has all of Fine's games (with ...

crawfb5: I think Game Collection: Prague 1946 is more or less ready for comment. It took a little longer than anticipated. There were some round and date issues I needed to untangle and I caught an annoying summer cold which slowed everything down. I will post a note in the Bistro.
 
   Jul-23-15 Santasiere vs B Pehnec, 1957 (replies)
 
crawfb5: Not only was Santasiere due a White, Collins was due a Black. That, along with the opening, seems convincing.

crawfb5: I have a draft introduction for Game Collection: 0 Prague 1946 . If you have any corrections or additions to suggest, let me know. I only included a few games so far. <zanzibar> submitted missing games, so I will finish that section after they are processed.

  Fusilli: <crawfb5> Okay, thanks for the update!

  Fusilli: Thanks for the update on Prague 1946. Great job!

Question: some of the games have Treybal Memorial as the name of the tournament, some have Treybal-Menchik memorial, and some have Prague 1946 (or Prag 1946, as in Guimard vs Najdorf, 1946. Will that be a problem?

  crawfb5: <F> This happens with practically every tournament. The games were submitted at different times by different people, which is the source of the variance. When a collection is voted in as a tournament page, <Event> and <Site> fields are normalized to what the nominator has put in the nomination form. Assuming we can get it successfully voted in, all will be consistent.

  Fusilli: <crawfb5> Ah... so that's how it works. Thanks for explaining.

  Fusilli: I'm happy to report I have a new dog! Her name is Sunny, she is 8, weight about 80 lbs, and is a mix of Labrador and Pyrenees. It was one of my girlfriend's dogs, but as she is moving from the country to the city, she decided to downsize her pet family and I adopted Sunny.

  crawfb5: Happy to hear of your new addition. She's a mix of two generally mellow breeds. A neighbor has a great Pyr and just got a Chihuahua for her daughter. They make quite the group when out walking.

  Fusilli: <crawfb5> Yes, she is pretty mellow. I just looked at her health chart and she weighs 87 lbs. She doesn't drool, which is a huge plus. But of course she sheds like there's no tomorrow.

My older cat, Fusilli (<Fusilli!!>) already made sure she understands that he lives here too, has seniority over her, and is not to be bothered. My younger cat, Kit-10 (a girl) is still being very cautious... not hanging around on the ground floor yet. (Sunny does not go upstairs.)

A Great Pyrenees and a Chihuahua, lol!

  Fusilli: <BTW> How's the feedback process going on Prague 1946? Please let me know when it's up for voting!
Aug-10-15
Premium Chessgames Member
  crawfb5: <F> Aside from catching a few errors, the feedback has not been particularly useful. I need to check the round dates one more time, especially Opocensky's early makeup games. I then hope to put it up for a vote and if any biographers want to edit it further after it becomes a tournament page, they not only have CG's authority, but my blessing. At that point I will not feel any sense of ownership.

  Fusilli: <c> I think a problem with the biographers bistro, as well as many other popular pages on <CG>, is that messages tend to get buried and discussion threads then get dropped. This is a result of both a large number of messages and some posts being too long. (I am guilty of the latter but not of posting too much.)

I do think a link to the 1948 FIDE world championship tournament is needed, in the first reference you make to that tournament. In the present version of the text, having the whole story about preparations for that tournament without having the link to the tournament feels incomplete.

Cheers!

  TheFocus: To <Fusilli>: Perhaps <CG> should give their editors Premium Membership, then the editors can talk directly to each other via Forums and things may not get lost.

That would be a nice benefits for you Editors.

  Fusilli: <The Focus> That would be a sensible solution. Say, a page for us users to propose things, suggest corrections to content, etc., and a different page for all the technical stuff on how to make things happen.

  The Chess Express: Hi <crawfb5>, I'm just letting you know I'm around again. I hope all is going well with you. I finally broke down and bought the Chess King software, so now at least I have a descent program :)

  crawfb5: <TCE> Welcome back! I'm recently back myself after being mostly absent for almost a year. Things are settling back down some, but life outside CG is still busier than it was. Hope things are good on your end. I see you have your old avatar again. I always think of you when I see that shot of Leko.

Premium Chessgames Member
  The Chess Express: Heh, yeah, Leko is a class act. I figured some of my previous comments would make no sense if I changed it. My play has actually become more Leko like over the years. Say, have you heard from <zanshin>?

Welcome back <Big>!

I had no idea you knew Peter Leko, but it doesn't surprise me. I know Magnus Carlsen eh?

Well I know who he is.

Does that count?

Jul-31-16
Premium Chessgames Member
  crawfb5: <TCE> He seems to have left some years ago based on when he last posted.

<JFQ> Sure. On the internet, anything counts.

  The Chess Express: Hi <JFQ>, it's good to hear from you again. I know Leko about as well as you know Carlsen :D

Even my puns?

Only back a day and he's already sprung a Leko.

Welcome back, Big.
