|Dec-12-16|| ||WannaBe: Simpsons 2016 Christmas with Wayne Gretzsky, A+++|
|Dec-13-16|| ||WannaBe: Apple did a WatchOS update/upgrade.
Guess what happened? https://www.yahoo.com/tech/watchos-...
|Dec-14-16|| ||WannaBe: Yahoo now says in 2013 1 Billion users' accounts were hacked.|
That must be a typo, there's no 1 <BILLION> users on yahoo. It's more like 10 people with duplicate accounts.
|Dec-21-16|| ||WannaBe: 11PM Eastern, W. Michigan at #2 Ucla (Pauley Pavilion). Wonder how much money is paid to WMU to come and visit SoCal, in December, away from the freezing cold and snow.|
Maybe WMU should pay Ucla, instead. =))
|Dec-22-16|| ||Penguincw: So Canadian like: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmon...|
|Dec-24-16|| ||WinKing: Merry Christmas to you <WannaBe>! :)|
|Dec-24-16|| ||Penguincw: Hello there Bugs Bunny. Got a message for you. ;)|
Well, Happy Christmas and Merry New Year.
|Dec-24-16|| ||WannaBe: <WinKing> Merry X'mas!|
<Penguincw> Hehehehe... that's the same message from 2 years ago. And that guy's still a terrible shot. I'm still here
|Dec-27-16|| ||WannaBe: Consumer Report have rated the new MacBook Pro, and recommendation is to not buy it:|
|Dec-30-16|| ||WannaBe: Alright, gonna bite the bullet and upgrade my iPad to 10.2|
See if that breaks anything...
|Dec-31-16|| ||NakoSonorense: Hey, <WB>! Looks like you decided to stick your your old avatar. You were considering changing it, right?|
Anyway, I went down to the motherland a couple of weeks ago and brought back with me my old chess set. It's a small wooden set, but it does the job. I was going to purchase a set to take down to Santa Monica beach, but I haven't seen one that I like yet.
The last time I went I put on a beating on this guy called Jack. We have played a few times over the last couple of years, almost with mixed results. The last time, however, I put on such a beating that I actually felt bad. I think the score was 11-2, or somewhere in the ballpark. Usually he beats me or I beat him by no more than 2 games.
I finally went to check my PO Box and got your card. Thanks! Happy Holidays!
Let me know next time you're in LA so that we can play a couple of games and have a few beers.
|Dec-31-16|| ||WannaBe: <NakoSonorense> Beer sounds good, it 'improves' my chess playing. =))|
|Dec-31-16|| ||Annie K.: Happy New Year, <WannaBe>! :)|
|Dec-31-16|| ||WinKing: Happy New Year <WannaBe>! 😊|
|Jan-01-17|| ||WannaBe: Thanks <Annie K.> & <WinKing>. The very same right back at ya. =)|
|Jan-01-17|| ||Penguincw: Hi <WannaBe>. Happy New Year to you.|
I'm sure you've been following the 2017 WJC. If you want to make predictions for the playoff games, just do so before Jan/02/2017 10:00 am PST on my forum.
|Jan-01-17|| ||WannaBe: <Penguincw> Not really following the World Jewish Championship, but I'll take Fischer to win it all.|
On the other hands, how about US beating Canada to win their hockey group? =))
|Jan-01-17|| ||Penguincw: < On the other hands, how about US beating Canada to win their hockey group? =)) >|
First time in a while USA has beaten Canada. :)
However, Canada's biggest loss wasn't the match itself, it was top defensemen Philippe Myers, who could miss the rest of the tournament due to a concussion.
I do think the US has a good chance to win it all, but let's see what happens.
|Jan-01-17|| ||saffuna: At ASU-Cal game, waiting for start. Sitting courtside. Said hi to Bill Walton.|
|Jan-06-17|| ||WannaBe: Theranos laying off more people, sold their office at Palo Alto:|

|Jan-16-17|| ||WannaBe: Have to see:
Resident Evil, and Lego Batman...
|Jan-16-17|| ||chessmoron: <WannaBe> Just finished watching Netflix's "A Series of Unfortunate Events" with NPH as Count Olaf. Really good but man...some of the adult characters are beyond gullible.|
|Jan-18-17|| ||WannaBe: Gonna be wet, windy and wild here at NorCal.
|Jan-18-17|| ||WannaBe: Berkshire have $85Billion, that's right, <BILLION> as of last September, sitting around collecting minimal interest, (So it's probably higher than 85 by now.)|
I mean, to put that in perspective, according to Forbes, Dallas Cowboys are the valuable team in the NFL at $4.2B with an annual revenue of $700M
I mean Warren Buffeft probably sneezes $700M... If he wants, he can buy 19 Dallas Cowboys with that $85B sitting around.
