|Aug-19-18|| ||OhioChessFan: I have noticed <ss> has used some uhhh, very British slang. It could be nothing, but I'm just saying.|
|Aug-19-18|| ||jith1207: Yeah, someone pointed out the word Fag as well. We will get to see, I understand there is value in perusal of the poster.|
|Aug-19-18|| ||jith1207: As a non native English speaker, I always have found in casual and in my client relationship, that i have found it easy to understand the Americans. The most difficulty I have experienced is with Scots or English, while it is extremely difficult to even follow Scottish accent and many of British accent for me.|
I have come across few American accent that are difficult to follow, but every single time it had been just a matter of acclimating. I had the experience of working with one Manchester lady, whom I had difficulty to understand even after a year of working together. It was embarrassing.
|Aug-20-18|| ||jith1207: I have a theory, a suspicion since the revelation that user: <Sneaky> is none other than Daniel Freeman.|
I saw another post where <Sneaky> says the user: <Sneaky Pete> is his alter ego, which I posted on Daniel's page or CG / KC, I guess. I think <Sneaky Pete> did a lot of translation work and seems to be familiar with another language, so people think it cannot be Daniel. I can see that, but what if Daniel is familiar with that language and his usual avatars didn't reveal that to public? And, he used this moniker to help the website in that regard. Daniel might have created different accounts for his different talent.
I came across this message from <Sneaky Pete> in Stalin page, where the user jokes about Daniel Freeman. If he's a normal user, would he bring in <DF> to joke about?
Stalin (kibitz #3)
<Sneaky Pete> has always been logging into this site every month, at least more than a handful of times each month this year. He has not logged in since July 12, it has been well more than a month now. I'm afraid we might have lost another long-term user. I hope not, I would be happy to show him this post when I see him messaging here. But I have a rather <Sneaky> feeling as to this user User: sneaky pete
|Aug-20-18|| ||JimNorCal: If the language is Spanish then since DF lived in Florida there's no surprise he knows the language. Any other language ... yes, you'd need more evidence such as his mother's knowledge.|
|Aug-21-18|| ||jith1207: Well, <Tiggler>, I did. But I didn't as much as you did, so you don't have to be so jealous of me.|
|Aug-21-18|| ||Tiggler: I only lectured about things that others wanted to hear. And not recently at all, whether they wanted to hear it or not.|
|Aug-23-18|| ||jith1207: <Tiggler>: I agree, I did get into few notches above my usual composure. Thanks for the reminder, I will remember not to.|
|Nov-10-18|| ||jith1207: From page six website on the start of World Chess Championship:|
Call it a rook-y error.
Woody Harrelson caused a king-size mess on Friday when he performed the duties of the ceremonial starter at the first match of the World Chess Championship in London.
Reuters reports that the “True Detective” star caused a royal mishap when challenger Fabiano Caruana asked Harrelson to move his opening pawn, but Harrelson moved the wrong piece — and accidentally knocked over the king, a move that usually signals forfeiture of the match.
Apparently Caruana “initially appeared to accept the mistake before officials allowed the pawn to be replaced.”
What a knight-mare.
|Nov-10-18|| ||moronovich: That was quite funny.
Woody never appeared as the most yellow banana in the jungle at Sams Bar.
Which he seemed to confirm yesterday.
|Nov-26-18|| ||jith1207: Ha Ha, he surely seemed to be too nervous to be on centrestage of a World Chess Championship opening, making an opening move for the challenger. My hands would have been trembling, but that's why they call celebrities who should have been used to such, you would think. |
Come to think of it, that has been the highlight of this match so far sadly. Glad it happened.
|Nov-26-18|| ||moronovich: <My hands would have been trembling, but that's why they call celebrities who should have been used to such, you would think.>|
Which reminds me of my first international tournament were in the first round I met a guy from Spain I knew nothing about.After a while I recognized I was pretty much nervous.
Then I took an intensive look at my opponent and realized : He was more nervous than me!That helped a lot and I duly won the game ;)
|Nov-28-18|| ||jith1207: Nice, thanks for sharing, <moronovich>. I think we all go through such instances, but timely presence of mind of the situation could help a lot. I can see how the nervousness would play out in tournaments, even though I have never been a player.|
I have always wondered, is this your real name?
|Nov-29-18|| ||Tiggler: < I can see how the nervousness would play out in tournaments, even though I have never been a player.>|
I had to give up tournament play nearly thirty years ago because I would become a nervous wreck. Weekend swiss tournaments that I played were 5 or six rounds at about 30 moves in 90 minutes: one on Friday evening, three on Saturday, two on Sunday. Then on Sunday evening I often had a 3-4 hour drive to get home, because I lived in a fairly remote small town. Never much use at work on Monday after that!
Best were team matches: they usually involved only one or two games. Then there was the company and support of teammates. Plenty of pressure not to let them down, of course.
My best moment was in a team match when I got the chance to play a Fried Liver Attack. I was pretty hazy about the book lines, but my opponent was even more lost. I was celebrity for weeks after that at my club: "Did you hear about Tiggler crushing NN in a Fried Liver?"
Highest OTB rating was in the 1900s (USCF) and, of course, I never won anything.
|Nov-29-18|| ||moronovich: <I have always wondered, is this your real name?>|
Thanks for asking <jith> !
No it was something between my son and me who,among other things shared a deep passion for chess.And our favourite at that time was Morozevich.My son played with the wording and came up with the self ironical <moronovich>,which he used on the net.In 2006 he got a severe braindamage and I "stole" his handle.
|Nov-29-18|| ||moronovich: Hi <Tiggler> !
Yes chess is a lot about the nervous system as you demonstrate.|
In that respect chess can clearly be a cruel game.
|Dec-26-18|| ||Penguincw: Hello <jith1207>. Enjoy the holiday season.|
|Jan-10-19|| ||jith1207: Hi <moronovich>: I couldn't imagine how I could reply to you as I lost my Father to a rare cancer that went from diagnosis to taking his life in less than a month and my life has never been the same again. If I may ask, what happened to your Son?|
I hope you get the Best user name award in year end Caissars awards for your son's selection. I voted for him.
|Jan-10-19|| ||jith1207: <Tiggler>: I can completely understand the sentiments. I become a nervous wreck when I realize that my position has been already compromised and I could never make a good move when I am losing. To me, it looks like it would take tremendous will to keep analyzing for the best shot <while losing>. I couldn't get myself to play the same way. If I have to play multiple speed games one after another, I am sure one game would affect subsequently all my play throughout the day.|
|Jan-10-19|| ||jith1207: Hi <Penguincw>, wish you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Thank you for the wishes, I hope you have a great time too.|
|Jan-10-19|| ||jith1207: I nearly fell off my chair when I saw my user name being nominated for most constructive poster award in year end Caissars awards. I was late this year to vote than usual, (hope it's not too late), so I didn't get to be surprised even earlier. |
Anyway, I'm honored to have been nominated by the committee, which I don't deserve, considering how many kibitzers I would myself mention ahead of my name. I take it as my contribution (not sure if it is the best way to put) after Daniel's passing.
I am also delighted to be one among many legendary kibitzers and that one HOF member, <ChrisOwen>.
|Jan-10-19|| ||agb2002: <jith1207: Hi, do you know what happened to the long term user
His page says there's no such user on record now. Perhaps he has asked the account to be removed?
jith1207: Sorry, it looks like the link in your bio is no longer working. He seems to be available, thankfully has just commented after a long time.>
Hi, I used to read dzechiel's posts relative to the POTD but none others, so I had no idea whether he discontinued his membership or kept it.
The link on my page probably uses an obsolete addressing method.
|Jan-10-19|| ||moronovich: Hi <jith 1207> !|
Thanks for your question and your words of care.
So sorry to hear about your dad.
It must be a terrible painful experience to you as you also say in words.And if I in anyway can be some help to you,just let me know.Loosing a parent or a child is something that can not be compared to anything ells.
I hope you have good friends and/or relatives who can support you.Whatever that means to you personally.
My son and I had 30 wonderful years together and then he got into a tough period and tried to hard to takke some of the pressure with using alcohol and one day with a promille of 4.00(which is extremely high and mortal to some)he got a blackout and after a month in coma he never fully recovered.
I have learned to live with it,though the whole is always there.And being gratefull to all this wonderful time we had together has helped a lot during the process.And allowing myself to be happy despite the tragic circumstances.A half empty glass is the closest neighbour to the half filled glass,if I shall try to find a picture that covers some of the road.
Once again I wish you all the best for your process and the healing.
Tata and soon also the spring is ahead of us !
Sincerely -moronovich- .
