(Hey, it is Valentine's Day...)>
Patzer see's check, patzer plays, "Dutch."
|Feb-15-17|| ||YouRang: <WannaBe> I think you're right -- looks like chessgames.gif is missing.|
|Feb-15-17|| ||WannaBe: Time to 'blame' Russian Hackers. =))|
|Feb-15-17|| ||WannaBe: "Loose pieces drop off"
Wardrobe malfunction on chess board?
|Feb-15-17|| ||chessgames.com: <chessgames.gif is missing> That's what I get for trying to do Linux shell work from a mobile phone.|
|Feb-15-17|| ||diceman: <A knight on the rim is dim.>|
In China: <A knight on the rim is dim sum>
|Feb-15-17|| ||YouRang: Well, at least now we know the identity of the Russian hacker...|
|Feb-15-17|| ||OhioChessFan: Rushin' hacker maybe.|
|Feb-15-17|| ||diceman: <OhioChessFan:
Rushin' hacker maybe.>
I never knew Patrice Rushen was into computers.
|Feb-15-17|| ||WannaBe: Took me more than half a day, I finally figured out the 'Dutch' comment by <diceman>.|
Man, I'm slow...
|Feb-15-17|| ||WannaBe: "Tactics flow from superior position"
Hoover Dam flows. Any further discussion(s)?

Hoover Dam flows. Any further discussion(s)? >
In California, water is flowing from an inferior position.
|Feb-16-17|| ||diceman: <WannaBe: Took me more than half a day, I finally figured out the 'Dutch' comment by <diceman>.>|
Yeah, too much of an explanation would
have made it un-chessy.
<Man, I'm slow...>
Look at the bright side.
You're remaining true to Aesop,
and, "The Tortoise and Hare."
|Feb-19-17|| ||offramp: I think that the <Quote of the Day> should be moved higher up the page. It could go just above the Recent Kibitzing box, or under Opening of the Day. At the moment it seems a bit isolated.|
|Feb-19-17|| ||Paarhufer: When I find games from simuls in newspapers, I often make such searches: http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches...|
In former times my first glance went into the column Event/Locale, and some city or country information was quite useful. Now I see only this "Simul, 103b" stuff, and I have to go through the player names or openings. Would it be possible to display the content of the site tag instead? Some people spent a lot of time with these tags (thanks!) and so they are quite informative.
|Feb-19-17|| ||OhioChessFan: Just curious how strongly you vetted kibitzer names in 2008. |
User: GM Arencibia
The next edit of the Wiki article, I wouldn't mind including him in the list of GM's who have kibitzed here, if you can verify the identity.
|Feb-19-17|| ||WinKing: That one might be legit <OCF>. Just a gut feeling. Should be verified though. Would be nice to include GM Arencibia to the list of visiting GM's @ <chessgames>.|
|Feb-19-17|| ||chessgames.com: <Paarhufer> <Now I see only this "Simul, 103b" stuff> Yes, that's a consequence of us accepting PGN where we can get it, even when it's not perfect. The good news is that we're working on a way for Chessgames volunteer editors (the regulars of the Biographer Bistro) to clean up some of the messy event-tags.|
<User: GM Arencibia> Never noticed that until today. Offhand I would guess it's legitimate, the IP geolocation makes sense, even the email address is very convincing looking. We tend not to investigate such things unless the player posts semi-frequently. Also see User: Walter Arencibia (same person by IP/email.)
We'll give him our normal GM-lifetime-membership; maybe he'll come back.
|Feb-19-17|| ||chessgames.com: Oh wait, as it turns out there are actually 9 year old notes on his account:|
<Really him. Gave a 1-year membership Mar 9th 2008>
I wouldn't have written that if I didn't exchange emails or something of that nature. Now he's lifetime.
|Feb-19-17|| ||chessgames.com: <Quote of the Day> You really think it deserves promotion? It's primary function these days is to rile up Edward Winter.|
|Feb-19-17|| ||OhioChessFan: <<Quote of the Day> You really think it deserves promotion?>|
Sure, why not?
<It's (sic) primary function these days is to rile up Edward Winter.>
|Feb-19-17|| ||OhioChessFan: You know what they say. Print the legendary quote, not the factual quote.|
|Feb-19-17|| ||WannaBe: Re: Print the legendary quote, not the factual quote.|
I was never called (a) Wascally Wabbit, it was due to Yosemite Sam & Elmer Fudd's lisp. They're from the same family tree as Daffy and Sylvester.
Swear, just ask our dad, Mel. =))
|Feb-20-17|| ||Domdaniel: <WannaBe> Nobody is more wascally than you. We will never see a more wascally wabbit. Good! Bad! Horrible!|
|Feb-20-17|| ||Domdaniel: PS, wanna be Secretary for Wabbits and Fences? We hear they have wabbit fences in the Australian outback?|
Make the wabbits pay...
