i'm a little frog who thinks dilbert is cool. i particularly like the dog.

- on the internet, everybody knows i'm a frog


< page "unparser">

i made a little script that is capable of producing the "raw text" of an original post. in other words it "undos" most of the changes that does to a post when it's posted, so that it's easier to "edit" an old post without having to recreate diagrams, links, chess notation and such.

see chessforum for more info on what it does and how it can be used.

to go directly to the "unparser", simply follow this link:

another feature of the unparser tool, is that it produces <universally valid links> for *any* post on - i.e. links that work for everyone regardless of their ignore lists. in other words, it also takes care of the situations where my link converter (see below) can't convert your link.


< broken link converter>

(note: the previously mentioned page "unparser" includes a *complete* solution to the broken link issue that works for *all* links. but using it takes roughly 5-10 seconds longer than using the imperfect "broken link converter" - but it's worth it!)

have you run across internal links that someone posted in order to be helpful, only to realize that it didn't take you where the poster intended? or worse, do you keep providing help to other kibitzers by referring them to other pages using links that look roughly like this: "http: // pid=123456&kpage=123#reply123" ?

in that case it's very likely that few or nobody but yourself will actually be able to follow that link where you intended - due to the existence of ignore lists (your own or those of other kibitzers). i made a little script that can be run from my web-site. it attempts to solve most of these problems, and those links it doesn't handle can be fixed using the slightly more advanced " unparser" (see above).

<what to do!>

instead of posting (or following) a link that includes a part that says "kpage=some-page" followed by "#replyNUM", try going to my link converter to turn it into something that actually will be useable for others:

some more details about the link converter can be found here: Hans Arild Runde and in the post it links to.

feedback or other contact requests may be sent to chess(at) - thanks!


please use my player pages for any general chess topic, whether it's about games, ratings or great chess players. feel free to dissect the few examples of my own amateurish attempts at the board too, of course. :o)


ps! remember to check out the ultimate shark slayer champions ranking, too: Magnus Carlsen

frogbert: I can't help feeling a bit sorry for Carlsen after today's loss against Topalov. The piece sacrifice was probably unsound and Tal-ish, but missing Qc6 after Topalov erred with Qd7!? isn't something a Carlsen in his best shape should do. Nxf8 instead of e5? could've turned ...

frogbert: <parmetd> Yes, FIDE has certainly kept changing their rating regulations. <Then it was changed to two, one at 2200 and one at 2100.> It's currently back to only one. You are allowed to play more than one unrated player and still have the possibility of getting a norm ...

frogbert: <zanzibar>, whether Nakamura is presented as the #1 bullet player or not, is a judgement call - but it appears to be something "official" when it's listed together with official rankings. But since there are no official bullet rankings, it *might* be true. Regarding blitz and

frogbert: I should have spotted the nice idea of 32. Qg7! If Rxg7 fxg7 I'm simply a rook up, and if 32... Rf8 I can simply push the h-pawn. If black threatens my godly e5-knight, I can play Re2, so after 32. Qg7 it's just over.

frogbert: blueparrot: First, I naturally read that comment back when it was originally written & posted. :) Secondly, the "amusing" part about it actually is that Hans Olav wrongly assumed that I didn't know more than 13 moves of that theoretical line - I've played several games following ...

frogbert: <Guarantee you're wrong, and I'm sure I'm not the only kibitzer willing to bet against you. Can you surmise why?> Everett, I guess your point is that if any player wins 4 games to 1 in decided games, then it will be over a maximum of 11 games with a score of 7 to 4, after ...
