Note: this absurdly over-written (in both the literary and programming sense) chunk of text has seemingly won a Caissar for Best Profile. I shall try not to burst into tears and throw my shoes at Meryl Streep.

A distinct aroma of burning prevails*. Fire and brimstone, probably, or one of the charred and singed chess sets in my possession.

Update, mid-2013. I've bought a new wooden board and set, and got rid of the burnt ones. Time to move on from conflagrations past.

*Empty Space*

Update, 2013. 'Empty Space' is also a brilliant novel by M.John Harrison, 3rd in the Kefahuchi trilogy.

I don't exist.

Just like the Urban Spaceman.
("I'm the urban spaceman, I'm intelligent and clean/ Know what I mean?/ I'm the urban spaceman, here comes the twist: I don't exist.")

I am deeply suspicious of 'social media'. I don't want my computer to think it knows my 'preferences', and I don't want my personal details passed from hand to invisible hand, or soul to poison soul. But I'm sufficiently open-minded -- or innocent -- to trust in the integrity of Chessgames.com, and the good people who run it.

Note: some folk may be more familiar with the kind of bio/profile that goes "Muh name is Peregrine Ng and ah play Bullet at PhyringRange.com and ah come to CG for thuh crab sandwiches..." ... sort of thing.

This isn't one of those. In fact, it was never really *written* at all ... more like 'left behind' after repeated moves. The fragments that remain intact have withstood years of deletions. Quite like me, really.

"Except when it isn't."

<'His calmness, his authority in all circumstances! In a chess game he would win everything, merely by his nerves.' 'But he was not playing chess,' Smiley objected drily.>

I'll say it again, though I can't recall saying it before: < Empathy is essential to any kind of intelligence worth having.> Although I seem to have some kind of attention surplus disorder.

A dictionary helps. As does Modern Chess Openings or Fundamental Chess Openings (by Van der Sterren -- good on transpositions). Encyclopedias, whether wiki, text-based or fictional, have their place.

Basta. Enough chess, it makes my head spin. Anyone who has lingered in my forum (Frogspawn, Philoxenia, 20,000 Lashes, Antarctica Starts Here, usw) knows that much of the conversation isn't about chess at all, or even lingerie. I'm interested in *stuff* -- arts and sciences, shoos and sheeps and ceiling wicks, kibitzers and King Kong vs Gojiro in Dronning Maud Land. I like to make connections. I like people who make connections.

Bad puns, bad languages, bad breathing, bad breeding, psychological insights, literary allusions, surrealist manifestos, or the sound of one hand stentorating. I'm not going to name any of the people who make CG so much fun. You know who you are, O my droogs and Zapkinder.

One last chess snippet. I have never, in my entire life, played either side of a Spanish/Ruy Lopez in a serious game. I'm a Spanish Virgin. There, you knew I was a pervert, didn't you?

Domdaniel: White's play is truly horrible. Black's is slightly better, but still not very impressive. Nonetheless, the game has some historical significance.

Domdaniel: I met Robin Williams once, in London: he was promoting Hook, and copying the accents (Scottish, Irish, English, etc) of everyone he met. Totally manic.
 
   Aug-13-14 O Ajibowo vs L Pantsulaia, 2014
 
Domdaniel: White's play wasn't so bad until the blunder 18.Qa7? With his Queen about to be trapped, he tries to create an escape square with Na4, but it doesn't work.

Domdaniel: 9...Nbd7 is dubious in this line, because of White's 10.Qa4 with the threat of Nc6. A better idea is 9...Na6, to meet Qa4 with ...Qa8. Black's 10...Nb8 is dangerously passive: it's no surprise that White soon finds a killing tactic.

Mar-23-07  JDK: <Dom> would you believe it, I ended up being escort to 'South Coast Pop Idol' so didn't get chance to reply until now.

I too don't believe there is a link between IQ and chess playing skill. It all comes down to patience, a constant willingness to learn new things, creativity and vision.

Most of the above the above are subconciously taught when very young. I've been tasked with teaching some kids chess before and some have zero patience. As soon as I met the parents I understood instantly. Sometimes the old chessmaster 'see that rook walk up to the queen and hit her over the head' method works. I am after all dealing with the playstation generation.

Once they learn patience again. Then creativity and vision come into factor.

Just my thoughts :-)

  Domdaniel: <JDK> Ah, there you are... I was going to make an Omnipresence Non-Deity Test (as one does) by chalking an imaginary quadrangle on the floor and intoning "JDK, O JDK, are you always about in the Quad?" -- fans of the limerick genre will get the reference. No need for this now, however.

<Frogspawn Chess Neurolinguistic Dept, contd.> I agree, the chess skill/IQ link is total nonsense. It is expressly promulgated by those who want to believe that (a) IQ tests measure a quality, intelligence, which they themselves possess in vast quantities, as proven by a self-administered test in the back of a magazine, (b) chess ratings are similar, though due to bad luck, culture jamming, wicked tournament directors, heavily armed opponents, weather, etc, they themselves tend to be underrrated and are 'really' of GM strength; and (c) that there is peer group social status available for guys with big ones.

My opinion -- I agree with Jessica that IQ tests basically measure facility with IQ tests. I went off the top of the scale on one once, which doesn't actually make me a 200 IQ genius, though it suggests that a lifestyle revolving around chess, poker, scrabble, go, bridge, cryptic crosswords, sudoku, math puzzles, limericks, and bad puns may well be very good practice for IQ-testing and should be implemented as a universal curriculum at once.

I also agree with JDK about chess aptitude. It seems to use many of the same parts of the brain as learning a language. Young children are hardwired to absorb language (vocab, grammar, structure etc -- and mostly by guessing and testing rather than formal teaching).

Exposure in depth to chess (or maths or music) during this key 'window' lets a person become fluent in chess -- what Bobby Fischer meant by 'I got good'.

It's also the reason there are child prodigies in chess, math and music -- they hijack the language acquisition machinery and apply it to a different formal system, internalising its rules and grammar.

Just as speakers have difficulty explaining their understanding of their native language, maybe these 'natural' chess players -- like Capablanca, who wrote little on chess -- also lack insight into their skill. It simply comes 'naturally' to them.

There's plenty of anecdotal evidence that those who learn chess early have a huge advantage over those who learned late. I was a late developer, aged 15 or 16 when I began, and always lagged behind the guys who'd already been playing for 10 years.

You can quickly reach a 2000 rating as I did, or 2400/IM level (according to various sources) but you still tend to speak chess with a slight foreign accent.

In mon case propre, it mean I make ze blunders even in my beloved French. And I play deliberately in the nimzoesque/bizarro style so that my lack of fluency looks like a lifestyle choice rather than a total failure.

Er, what was that I was saying about social status?

  Domdaniel: <mack> Asimov? *Asimov*? Gulp.

I admit he can't be *all* bad, given his philosophically positronic robots and his Foundation histori-science and even his non-fic books, but I'm not what you'd call a fan.

To me, Asimov was the old guard, the ancien regime that various new waves (Ballard, Delany, Dick in the 1960s, Gibson in the 80s/90s, Stephenson now) were intent on overthrowing.

Did I misread something? Should I reassess?

She does have an infinite range of vivid expressions.

Funny how you start making visuals in your mind of some of the kibitzers here at cg's! At least with the people you really like and talk to often.

Mar-23-07  JDK: <Dom> Yes, Here I be again. Looks like the On-DT thing works a treat.

<You can quickly reach a 2000 rating as I did, or 2400/IM level (according to various sources) but you still tend to speak chess with a slight foreign accent.>

This is very true. In the JDK'o'graph I must be 2800 :-) Elo however, I would be closer to 1300 :-)

I've been sitting here whilst waiting for the disembodied voice to call on that big phoney thing, thinking about what were the main factors for me picking up chess in the first place (as none of my family play it...yet) and it was the wanting to beat my best friend at something else, given that he was king of football manager (think 80's text only game). So in theory if I was good at football manager, I may never have found chess.

  Domdaniel: <WBP> There are two easy ways around the typo problem for a highly literate chap such as yourself. Both, however, take a little longer than usual and are thus of no use to the playstation generation.

(1) Write the whole thing elsewhere, in Word, and paste it in. This does *not* work for me, as I've somehow taught myself to completely ignore all spelling suggestions made by word processors and spellcheckers. "Poluphloisboiotatotic? I'll be the judge of that, if you don't mind, machine."

(2) Is faster and actually does work. All you have to do is check over and edit the post before hitting 'kibitz' -- I often delete chunks of gibberish at this point. The downside is you spend too much time in CG cyber-limbo, and totally lose the thread of any conversation.

  Domdaniel: Frogspawn, <Quote of the Day>

['HE', Rameau's Nephew, is explaining his philosophy to 'I', presumably Diderot himself...]

HE: “I like giving orders, and I shall give them. I like being praised, and praised I shall be. And then we shall have women, and all be bosom friends when drunk, and drunk we shall certainly get. We’ll bandy tittle-tattle and go in for all sorts of quirks and vices. It will be lovely...

... We shall prove that Voltaire has no brains, Buffon is always high-falutin and nothing but a windbag, Montesquieu merely a wag, D’Alembert will be relegated to his mathematics, and we shall smite hip and thigh all those little Catos like you, who despise us out of envy, whose modesty is a cloak for pride and whose sobriety is dictated by necessity. And music? Then we shall have some!”

I: "If I were you I should put all these things into writing. It would be a shame if they were lost."

HE: “That’s true, but you don’t suspect how little the method and the rules matter to me. The man who must have a manual won’t ever go far. Geniuses read little, but do a great deal and are their own creators. Look at Caesar…”

  Domdaniel: Sad news, readers. I've just learned that my Irish ELO rating has dipped below 1900 for the first time since I paused briefly at 1840 and 1880 on the way up. Now I've apparently sunk back to 1892.

Such things are quite subjective, we know. Masters think of everything sub-2400 as incapable of walking upright. Yet some kibitzers on this site speak in excited tones of the dizzy heights of the 1500 zone.

Psychologically, I'm afraid I'm conditioned to regard anything in the 1800s as 'weak'. And now I must face the inexorable truth of my own 'weakness'.

Should I give in, retire, drop out gracefully? Or play in next week's tournament and make goddam sure my performance rating is back up around 2100...?

You decide for me. I'm still in shock. Moi! 1892! They'll be telling me next that my IQ has dropped below 200...

Mar-23-07  JDK: Only 8 points, easy to reclaim. To get to 1200, now that is hard. I would always take the harder mission :-)

And since this forum still has quite a long way to go before reaching <2nd> (<WannaBe>'s forum - 208 pages) and <1st> (<EmperorAtahualpa>'s forum - 537 pages), the next exciting event should be jess' forum entry into the top 10 - it's on the verge of overtaking <RandomVisitor>'s forum...

Mar-23-07  JDK: <Jessica FischerQueen's> forum could well be storming the charts very very soon if the amount of traffic keeps up.

I am suprised <azaris> is not on that list yet. If not for entirely posts on Spurs :-)

<EA> is of course way in the lead and could take the whole year off and still be #1.

  Eyal: <They'll be telling me next that my IQ has dropped below 200...>

I notice that you've posted lately on the Carlsen page, so that might actually be true according to the azaris theorem:

Mar-23-07
Premium Chessgames Member
  Domdaniel: <Eyal> So ten posts on the Carlsen page should pretty much wipe anyone out? Or is it one of those asymptotic functions that approaches the target but never hits it?

<achieve> -- incroyable! -- even though I'd been checking the stats, I thought I was still some way behind.

Also, several of those whom Jess is fast catching up on are pretty static, so she should jump from 40th to 35th to 30th in a few days... and then everyone can watch out.

I think they should do a separate count for forums filled up with posts by people other than the host. One reason this place is ahead is my verbosity. Jess possibly gets more actual visitors than anyone else...

  WBP: <Dom> Muchos gracias for the advice (believe it or not, I do follow the proofreading part, but I've always had one hell of a time proofing my own stuff (I spot student errors easily).

  Domdaniel: <mack> - <It's not just that jokes happen to be old. They must be old to be enjoyed. It's essential that a joke not be original. There's one variety of humour that is, or can be, original and that's the pun.>

Actually, I think this Asimov quote is interesting. I can't stand 'old' jokes -- well, not strictly true, as repetition of Stanshall or JCC bears out (are these even 'jokes', though?). But I've noticed that some people seem to derive pleasure from the oldness itself -- "Ahhh, listen to this, this is the bit where he goes..." -- while the old stuff that I happen to like is more, um, like a fine wine or something.

Nah, it doesn't really work, and I'm just being snobbish. What I don't like is the repetition of jokes-I-don't-like. Very circular, that.

Many puns seem obvious to me. This is often because they *are* obvious, and have been made 10,000 times before. But I've also been told that not everyone responds to a chunk of speech by turning all the words inside out.

Takes all sorts, dunnit?

Of the many, many books out there on and about puns and paronomastics, one of my faves is 'Puns' by Walter Redfern. He walks a crazy-paving delicate line between the scholarly and the raving mad, mixing actual history and linguistics with splurges of word association football. Premiership material, too.

Speaking of football, Staunton's Irish squad grows more woeful by the second. Mr Keane, he right: fail to prepare, prepare to fail. Wales to wallop 'em.

I've heard that Roy also does a mean version of Positively 4th Street -- "You got a lot o' nerve, boy, to say ye're my friend..."

Riff, riff.

Mar-23-07  achieve: <Jess possibly gets more actual visitors than anyone else...> Possibly, poss dam it POSSIBLY??? No need for chessgames to verify that <Dom> She is a magnet and you know it!

As far as your droppy in rating.. No feelings of sympathy here.. We all experience the occasional setback.

<Your IQ> can drop only "temporarily" by visiting the Magnus page so no worrier there. You're still way upthere with the best ;-) (Kaspy is on 190)

The fact that you think Jess is climbing up from 40 etc. IS worrysome-- Jess is over 2.000 posts at her flat now so already in the top 10 if she wouldn't have gone downtown partying yesterday imo.

Kidding aside, When did you last play rated in Ireland? Your analysis in the World vs AN game was very impressive!

I think there was some confusion here between number of personal posts (where you need ca. 4000 to get into the top 40 zone) and number of posts in forum (where you need ca. 2000[=80 pages] to get into the top 10 zone). Anyway, considering that jess' forum is active for only about a month and a half, that's probably the one with the most posts per day in average.
