Member since Oct-01-06 · Last seen Apr-27-17
NJ--no rating. Favorites, Morphy, Marshall, Anderssen. Played a lot as a teen, then let it go for 40 years. Trying to reconstitute myself as a chess player.

Meanwhile, let this forum serve as a refuge from wild-eyed loony leftism. Here there will be no admiration for Hugo Chavez, Castro, or any of the other tin-pot dictators admired by chess players from the safety of freedom-loving Western democracies. Here will be found a premise that most of the nations of the world today are governed by Godless fools. Ours, too, unfortunately.

I was also going to say some uncomplimentary things about Queen Pawn games, the Sicilian and the French Defenses, Semi-Slav games, and a few other chess matters. But as those are purely questions of personal taste, I have chosen to leave them alone.

Since setting up this forum, I have also had several novels published: "Bell Mountain," "The Cellar Beneath the Cellar," and "The Thunder King." For more information about them (and me), visit my website, http://leeduigon.com/

Update, much delayed: my fourth book, "The Last Banquet," came out last year, and my fifth, "The Fugitive Prince," I expect to be published sometime this Spring. For book covers and free sample chapters, visit my blog.

Update again: "The Fugitive Prince" is out now and the next project is "The Palace." Editing is well advanced, but we're still waiting for a cover.

Update: "The Palace" is in print now along with No. 7, "The Glass Bridge," with No. 8, "The Temple," waiting in the wings. The first seven are all available via amazon.com.

playground player: <optimal play> I noticed you used the word "designed," as in the T. rex being "designed to hunt prey and eat meat." It's not so easy to get away from the Designer (not that I'm accusing you of trying to do that). Meanwhile, Darwinism remains every bit as close-minded

  playground player: <Esteemed Colleagues> Studying the history of this era will be the devil's own job. Future historians will be constantly deceived by our age's surviving documents--until they figure out that most of the documents were written by liars.

Words now mean pretty much whatever the speaker wants them to mean. Take the word "centrist," for one.

https://leeduigon.com/2017/04/24/ce...

Here we have it applied to a politician whose agenda is clearly globalist far-left, put-your-own-country-out-of-business... and the nooze media are all calling him a "centrist." That is not an honest use of that word.

Can anyone explain what would be so good about having a global government?

Hillary Clinton would be able to find work.

  playground player: More computer hell. When I check the link in my post to see if it works, the accursed machine won't let me go back to my kibitz. So that's that.

Premium Chessgames Member
  playground player: <WannaBe> I just did what I always do. Type out the kibitz, which included a link to my blog. Click the link to see if it works. Then either find something that needs to be corrected, or not find something, and click the arrow to go back to the kibitz box. Only this time I clicked and nothing happened. It wouldn't go back. Just stayed there like a big ijjit.

  playground player: Just tried again and the same thing happened--click on the link, which takes me to my blog--and then I can't get back.

Not having this problem on any other site. *sigh*

  jessicafischerqueen:

<Lee> That almost certainly means there's nothing wrong with your computer- the problem will likely lie with your website host.

Contacting them might prove fruitful, if that were possible...

Sadly, most website masters do a very poor job at replying to customer questions.

  WannaBe: Okay, I think I know the answer, you come to CG.com and your profile, type in the Kibitz box, with a link to your blog.

You then click kibitz button, and it goes to preview. You click on the blog link, and you can't go back to CG.com

(This is what I have surmised from previous posts, if incorrect, please correct me)...

Solution: After you click the kibitz button, and preview comes up. Right click on the blog link, select open in a new tab.

Then make your edit(s) on your blog page as necessary. Save the blog, close that tab/page. Right click on the preview link, open new tab. As long as the blog link is the same, you should see the (new) edited page.

<WannaBe> I'm not sure I understand your instructions. Remember, when it comes to computer stuff, I am an idiot. This morning I discovered I was now a follower of my own blog. How dumb is that?
