If my math is right, each individual will receive around 4341.33 dollars; however, the lawyers will receive probably 100x (if not more)!

  WannaBe: Goodness Gracious, in the 49th tournament, Intermediate, group 343, I'm the highest ranked player in that group!
Sep-11-08  myschkin: . . .

"Acid Little Lungs" :D


800 grams lung boiled, cut into strips and lodged in brew of water, 1 tablespoon vinegar, 1 bay leaf, some juniper berries , a pinch of cloves, salt and sugar

2-3 onions cut into cubes (?)

200 grams of lard

200 grams of flour

about 1 liter brew, in which the lung
was put in

little salt, pepper, sugar

a good shot vinegar



Fry the pieces of onion (should not become brown) in (the?)lard.

How to do the roux: heat flour (until it is slightly tanned ? ). Stir in lungbrew until no lumps can be seen - let the sauce simmer for another 20 minutes. Put the meat in after 10 minutes. Season to taste with (a good dose of) vinegar, salt, pepper (and sugar, depends).

Bon appetit (be creative, like I did while translating^^)

  WannaBe: Sounds yummy, will give it a try as soon as I get my hands on some lungs. =)

Sep-12-08  zoren: hi, thanks for posting on my page. (309 pages? you have more kibitzes than GM's!)

  WannaBe: Wow, how about them Bruins!! We've got a great football team this year.
Sep-14-08  NakoSonorense: Shut up!!! :( No more comments.

There's a computer-related question coming your way... soon. I warn ya!

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <NakoSonorense> Thanks for the warning, looking forward to your question. =)
Sep-15-08  NakoSonorense: Ok, here it goes. I need internet at home and I'm trying to figure out what to do.

I think a WLAN would work fine as I need to connect two computers. But I've got no idea as to the providers out there. I'd be willing to pay as much as $60-70 a month.

What do you recommend?

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <NakoSonorense> Basic DSL/Cable modem, allows multiple connections (with wire). You get the modem as part of the package, with DSL, you also get dongles that plugs into the phones, but that's another story.

If you want to avoid the wires, (partially, or all of your computers) get a wireless router, like this: then you can set it up the way you want.

(By using a key system, you can access the wireless connection after you enter the key, that way your neighbor can't piggy-back on your signal, or if you are a nice guy, just leave it open, like libraries, Starbucks, or hot spots... Then everyone within range can share your connection!)

Depending on where your home is, it may or may not be DSL ready, because it requires special setup by the phone company, and the wiring required.

If DSL is not an option, cable may be the way to go for you. If you want, you can even have Fios:

Hope this helps, and not confuse you even further. =)

Sep-16-08  NakoSonorense: Thanks!

  WannaBe: On second thought, it wasn't such a good game, missed the mate, only to recover and play it a move later.

Blunders galore on both sides.

Sep-18-08  zoren: I might try e4 Ke2 in a real tournament game, just to piss off some of my rivals, if I'm already trailing badly in score.

I can see it pissing them off like I wrote them off as a bad player. I think I'd be hated though if I actually came out with a draw or even won. The locals here are more serious than I am about chess.

According to a player I know there was a guy there at the club who screamed an explicit word at the top of his lungs when he couldn't convert an advantage and he hurled his set. I'd be glad to play Ke2 if it elicits such response!

I'm an out of work waitress and my friend told me you might give me a job.

The last place I worked at was the Hooter's Bar and grill in Paterson New jersey.

Wait, this isn't the Odd Lie page.

Sep-23-08  NakoSonorense: I'm connected up. I got Time Warner Internet Cable.. Will be paying $30/month, which will be split in half between my rommate and me. I also got the router and it's working wonders...

Thanks for your help! xD

  dzechiel: <WannaBe: Dodgers' records against possible playoff opponents in the NL: ...>

Yeah, but that's all in the past. The Dodgers have added Manny Ramirez and along with Ethier, Loney, Garciapara, Kemp, DeWitt, Martin and Blake are really hot right now. If I was the Cubs, I wouldn't want to play them first.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <dzechiel> Yes, it is possible, that we can pull off what the Cardinals did two years ago!!

Here's to LA Dodgers-LA Angels World Series!!! (I don't care if the rest of the U.S. won't watch it!)
