Technical draw is a fictional character living in the collective vision of chess games.com who has little relationship to the real technical draw; a neurotic and insecure figure obsessively clinging to the promise of power and wealth as if it were the only meaning in his life.

  technical draw: <juan31> Es cierto. No renovaré mi membresía. Pronto este site va a estar como decimos en Puerto Rico, al garete. Yo he tenido problemas con la persona que por modus propio se va a apoderar del site y lo convertirá en su finca privada. No se puede volver al site que amaba. Ya se nota en algunos foros el uso de palabra obscenas, algo que Daniel no permitía.

Es curioso que ya yo habia hecho la decision de irme, despues de 15 años, antes de la muerte de Daniel.

No se puede soñar el mismo sueño dos veces. A los que se quedan espero que lo pasen bien y no tengan conflictos con la persona que se queda a cargo.

Pendiente a "Odd Lie" donde escribiré mi biografía y mi despido......TD

  technical draw: <fc> <Lo captaste: ¿el tipo que perdió un portafolios porque se pasó con la botellita, cómo era esa historia?>

No me hagas recordar. Pero te contaré. Yo trabajaba con una agencia de inteligencia USA. Tenia una simple tarea para cumplir. Llevar un portafolio con mapas y documentos clasificados de Madrid a Valladolid. Muy sencillo no?

Pero la noche antes del viaje me fui de juerga hasta amanecer. Y así, todavia con borrachera de la noche, tomé el tren de Madrid a Valladolid.

Casi llegando a Valladolid me dan ganas de ir al baño. Con el mover del tren por poco me caigo así que me senté en el inodoro. Y ahí mismo me quedé dormido.

Cuando despierto el tren esta vacio y fuera de la estacion a unos ocho rieles de distancia. Cuando llego a mi asiento el maletin con lo documentos no está. Enseguida entré en pánico! El maletin contenia mapas, documentos, mi pasaporte, mi licencian de conducir internacional, y lo mas importante: Carnets para entrar en cualquier instalacion Militar Española.!

Ok, calma TD, primero hay que llegar al terminal del tren. Para eso tuve que ir brincando entre riel y riel hasta llegar al terminar. Pero que pasa? La plataforma esta hecha para los que se bajan del tren no los que estan en las rieles.

Así que tuve que gritar hasta que algunos me oyeron y extendieron los brazos para sacarme hasta la plataforma. Enseguida pregunte donde estaba el cuartel de policia mas cercano. Y por gracia de Dios habia uno ahí mismo en la estacion.

Cuando entro en la oficina se me detuvo el corazon! Los policias tenian mi maletin abierto y estaban mirando los documentos. Cuando me ven dicen, "mira, por fin aparecio!" El capitan se sonrio un poco y me pregunto donde estaba. Y yo, muy estupidamente, le dije que me habia quedado dormido en el baño del tren. Para que fue eso? Todos los policias empezaron a reirse y yo me sentí ridiculo.

Pero todo se resolvio, me entregaron mi maletin con los documentos y ya que me iba cometo un faux pas al preguntarle al capitan que donde habia un hotel en este PUEBLO. Se le fue la sonrisa y me dijo, en esta Capital! Hay uno al frente. Cuando salí empezaron a reirse otra vez.

Bueno me fui al hotel confiado que no habia pasado nada, que la policia no informaron a nadie y cuando llega la persona al cual tenia que entregarle los documentos se los entrego y aqui no ha pasado nada.

El hombre llega, me saluda, toma los documentos, se despide y va hacia la puerta. De momento se vira y me dice: Que te pasó en el tren!!! Ya sabia que todo habia acabado con mi trabajo. El hombre me entrego las llaves de un coche y me dijo que fuera a Ponferrada y a esperar futuras comunicaciones...y Ponferrada tiene mas historias!.....TD

Aug-13-18  falso contacto: No, esas son puras habladurías. Yo sigo creyendo en el agente con la media sonrisa de niño.

  juan31: <TD> el libro "Bobby fue a la guerra" escrito por dos periodistas ingleses, es interesante, los escritores, fueron a Rusia, Estados Unidos de Norteamérica, Islandia y entrevistaron a personas relacionadas con el campeonato 1972, desde mi punto de vista interesante, pero creo les faltó asesorarse de un GM, si no lo has leido te lo recomiendo, es divertido.

Don't make it any worse than it already is.

<juan31> Creo que lo lei en Ingles, "Bobby goes to War." Yo viví esa época y todas las noticias que nunca hablaban de ajedrez de momento había Fischer Fever por todas partes. Los 6-0, 6-0 contra Taimanov y Larsen asombro hasta los mas enemigos de Fischer. Alguien dijo, "todavía tenemos a Petrossian y despues que Petrossian ganó el segundo partido las esperanzas de los Rusos subio pero solo para caer estrepidosamente a tierra. Y yo solo tenia 23 años de edad.

When are you beginning your travels? Are you going by boat?

I have a family member who retired long ago. She then proceeded to take a cruise from the USA to New Zealand and then back to the USA, opposite coast, for a near-round the world cruise.

  technical draw: <tga> Pretty soon now. Today I got my brand spanking new American Express credit card and I'm not leaving home without it. Boats are out. Business class air travel for me. My daughter in law has a zillion frequent flyer miles and I can get tickets from her on the cheap.
Aug-14-18  NakoSonorense: <td> si tú te vas, yo también.

Wait, I already left years ago! I visit the site much less frequently these years compared to all the hours I would spend here. At some point I felt that I was not getting a good ROI by being here so much. When I do check in, however, this and <WannaBe>'s are the first forums I click on. Sometimes they are the only ones I check!

I guess what I'm trying to say is this: unless you go live in a cave, leaving cg.com is nearly impossible to do. No matter what new things you engage in, how much you travel, how much time you spend with the family or with the girlfriend, there will always be downtime to indulge yourself at least a few minutes a week.

So, when/if you "leave," don't feel bad at all when you fire up a browser and start typing chessga...

Nos vemos!

Uh, what girlfriend? Are you trying to get me in trouble or something?

You're right. I probably see myself logging back in every once in a while just to see what's going on. However since I don't remember my password I might not be able to do that.

Aug-14-18  falso contacto: <gf>: That was the part of Nako indulging himself. Probably indulging you too. <nako> Good to see you mate! How you doing these years?!
Aug-14-18  NakoSonorense: <td> <However since I don't remember my password I might not be able to do that.>

I'm sure you can reset it. It should be easy to get a new one!

<falso> Hey, compadre. Muy bien, no me puedo quejar. Me he hecho muy buen amigo de unos argentinos de Rosario que siempre quieren hacer entraña, choripanes, etc. Son bien divertidos. El padre, la madre, y la hija trabajan conmigo. La hija acaba de tener un bebe con su esposo mexicano. Orale, che!

  technical draw: It doesn't rain, but it when it rains it pours.

I think I have convinced my son to shell out $2,500 so I can celebrate my 70th birthday at the Western Wall in Jerusalem. I was going to go with or without his help but I guess he was touched by an angel.

I think "Next Year in Jerusalem" will finally come to pass. It is still months away but my heart is already pounding with excitement. I will be going alone. One man's journey in tears of joy!

I will definitely take pictures and post them her via a photo site.
