|Aug-11-14|| ||chessgames.com: <DomDaniel> Thanks, that is very inspiring.|
<zanzibar> Repo Man is always intense :)
About the search, it's fairly easy to explain although the situation is pretty bad. Here's what's going on:
The search was modeled after the 'classic' search engine approach (Altavista, Yahoo, etc.) meaning if you search for "A B" there is an implicit OR, so you are really searching for "A or B". So that means when you search for "Alexander Ipatov" you really are searching for "Alexander OR Ipatov". Apparently we have over 32,000 games with Alexanders now.
I tried an experiment once to make it an implicit AND, so in that case it would work perfectly, but then the problem was that people would type "Alexandre" etc.
The practical solution is just to leave off names like "Alexander" and "John" (or for superusers, now it's possible to enter a PID.)
Needless to say, this needs improvement.
|Aug-11-14|| ||chessgames.com: I've always been inspired by an almost AI-like knowledge based system that could parse searches based on statistical knowledge. For example whether you type in "Hou Yifan" or "Yifan Hou" it should know very well what the surname is, and even know that it's a Chinese player. It could learn this data in FIDE or even outside of FIDE. At the same time, gather information like "Alex = Alexander = Alexandre". Possibly even typo data like "Alexadner" = "Alexander". In the end, we're easily talking about millions of records.|
This is the technology that you see on typical Google searches. When you type a name, they know it, and they'll even correct your spelling for you.
Having that tool in the toolkit would open the doors to even smarter searches, like EZ Search could almost become natural langue. It would have a "thought" process like: "obviously you're talking about Fred Reinfeld playing the Ruy, not Ruy Reinfeld playing the Fred." Right now, if it ever seems that clever, it just got lucky.
Anyhow, that's the pie-the-sky dream. For now I'd be happy just with small improvements.
|Aug-11-14|| ||WannaBe: <chessgames.com> Some web sites, for doing search, they have radio button that offers "Match any word", and "Match all words" would this make things easier? Or harder?|
|Aug-11-14|| ||Annie K.: ... and I'd be happy with any improvements at all to the Kibitzing Search... ;)|
|Aug-12-14|| ||Stonehenge: After clicking on some moves here, the a8 square is turning green and white alternately. I'm using a laptop.|
Walton vs Alburt, 1986
|Aug-12-14|| ||Stonehenge: I see, there's two times 32, for move 32 :)|
|Aug-12-14|| ||Stonehenge: It was the 1986 U.S. Open. GM Lev Alburt lost in the first
round to an A-player when he sacrificed unsoundly. Here is the game:|
Walton,M (1986) - Alburt,L (2648) [A75]
87th U.S. Open Somerset, NJ (1),

|Aug-12-14|| ||chessgames.com: The code that triggered that seems to be just a single period before move number number 32: <31. Qe3 Qxd6 .32. Nc3 Qb4 33. Qe2 Qd6>. That's all it takes to turn a8 into a Christmas light. That's a new one on me.|
|Aug-14-14|| ||WinKing: We (the World Team) never received a move from GM Naiditsch yesterday. We moved 13.Ba4 on August 10th so his move was due yesterday. We are all wondering if you have heard from him & what the situation might be. Just wanted you to be aware - thanks.|
|Aug-14-14|| ||chessgames.com: I sent an email to GMARK but haven't heard back yet. I'm not sure if it's the Olympiad or that he wants to study 13.Ba4 some more, or maybe a little of both—in any case, I deducted his first extension and now he has until next Wednesday.|
|Aug-14-14|| ||WinKing: Thanks <chessgames> I will let the troop know.|
|Aug-18-14|| ||MarkFinan: <KKDEREK: Hey mark, did you born butthurted (and you parents did'nt proper educated you) or you became one on Leeds prison ( where you did your time) and become addicted? lol.
Tell us my dear criminal. Pour out old man.
People, take it easy with him. He's a very sensible man and have some past issues..Don't mock on him on Oasis, Liam, Messi, Beatles, Pele, Bradford, English Media, nothing , or he will get mad and...
|Aug-18-14|| ||KKDEREK: Cry, bigbaby, cry.
<markfinan> How many times you offended people on chessgames on daily basis? 200? 300?
Can't take a few shots back? Good, stop make personal attacks on others if you you can't take your own medicine..And leave me alone, told you that before.
You were already suspended and expelled from here. Daniel gave you <more than enough> chances to you come back. Want me to post here all your last personal attacks?
Anyway this is not a place for this. Send him a email, you bigbaby.
|Aug-18-14|| ||chessgames.com: You two are like children.
<KKDEREK> if you break our posting rules, you don't get a free pass if you can demonstrate that you were insulting somebody who broke the rules themselves. You know that very well, because we've been through it more than once.
<MarkFinan> Every day I see you interact with KKDEREK, and complain about KKDEREK. If your goal is to goad him into breaking the rules then I'm sure you've succeeded, but you're not doing anybody a service by undertaking such a project.
I wish you'd both just put each other on your ignore lists and be done with this. Seriously. You obviously don't like each other; that's fine. But does that mean you have to constantly be fighting?
I wouldn't mind this situation so much if you were fighting over the merits and disadvantages of the IQP, or how to liberate your light-squared bishop in the French Defense. But no, you're at each other's throats about football, music, etc.
I'm sure I'm speaking in behalf of the majority of Chessgames members when I plead to both of you, just give it a rest.
|Aug-18-14|| ||KKDEREK: I know that, Im sorry, but I complained zeveral times about him breaking the rules and nothing was done..|
Well I put him on ignore, but don't ask me why I see his post from the windows phone..And mostly I just answered his attacks..That doesn't make myself any better, I know, but we all know what's going on here. Im not the firt or second who had problem with his behavior..
How many times I blew the whistle? You guys knows that. I don't mind get suspended . But I'm sure if you guys apply your own rules, someone will be suspended (or expelled again) <way before> me. So please enforce your rules. I promise I will not reply and <<wait>> for you action. That's a promise.
|Aug-18-14|| ||MarkFinan: <I wouldn't mind this situation so much if you were fighting over the merits and disadvantages of the IQP, or how to liberate your light-squared bishop in the French Defense.>|
Good point. But he can't play chess which begs the question. What's he doing here in the first place? Anyway I'm busy tonight but I'll try pop in here later because as you know.. I've been quiet for a reason! I'll publicly say it if you're not bothered??
<<MarkFinan> Every day I see you interact with KKDEREK, and complain about KKDEREK.>
Wrong. You see him follow me around like a love sick puppy. I talk to other people and he cherps up. He has photos of me that I don't even have! Do you not find that weird??
Anyway. Peace out until later :-)
|Aug-18-14|| ||Shams: <cg> <I wish you'd both just put each other on your ignore lists and be done with this.>|
I wish YOU would put each of them on the other's ignore list! :)
|Aug-18-14|| ||chessgames.com: <zanzibar>
Sorry I had to delete your post because it broke formatting.
<To change the topic for a moment - I just realized that <Adv Search> is very sensitive to whitespace. Doing a search on < 88952> is different from searching on <88952>.>
I had no idea. That's easy to fix, thanks for pointing that out.
|Aug-19-14|| ||davide2013: The Guess the move queue is blocked by 2 days, did something happen with the server? (Just mentioning, because once you told me there was a hacker... and since the Olympiads are over, I cannot imagine why it is blocked...)|
|Aug-19-14|| ||MarkFinan: CeeGee.. I don't know whether anyone's ever mentioned this before but it's happened to me three times now. |
I make a post, say in the cafe. I go back to my profile. I see the post has been posted. I click back on the link to re read my post and it's not yet showed up!!
|Aug-19-14|| ||chessgames.com: <Davide> GTM is chugging away fine, it's just that a few people are flooding us with requests. I see it processing a game now, I hope its yours.|
<Mark> When you refresh the page, does your post show up then? I did hear something like that not long ago and I attributed it to some kind of cache problem on the user-end. I can't imagine what else it could be.
|Aug-19-14|| ||zanzibar: Just posted in Bio Bistro, about <Tromso Open olm (2014)>, which might be worth a look:|

When I refreshed the page it wasn't coming up, no. I clear the cache of my browser every day (btw I'm not a fan of google chrome...anyway) so it's not that. It's happened on three separate occasions over the space of a few weeks. There's no problem because it still posts, I was just letting you know. When I'm not using my Wi-Fi and just using my data up the pages refresh a lot faster, so maybe that's it. You know I'm no technological wizz Daniel, lol ✌
|Aug-19-14|| ||zanzibar: <chessgames> or whoever might be interested. |

|Aug-20-14|| ||morfishine: Hello <CG> I tried to submit a pun for this game: P Kiss vs Tibor, 1973|
but it posted at this game: Reshevsky vs Petrosian, 1953
Can you delete the pun submission and re-submit "Kiss of Death" for the first game?
