|Jan-07-14|| ||tpstar: <Eyal> Alright! Thanks for voting!|
|Jan-07-14|| ||HeMateMe: Those are my three. For some reason you can't copy the URL banners from one page to another, within the site (Caissers to your page) without losing the blue link function.|
|Jan-08-14|| ||tpstar: <KKDEREK> Thanks for voting!|
|Jan-09-14|| ||WannaBe: <tpstar> Sorry to interrupt the voting procedure, but I'd though you'd find this interesting.|
|Jan-12-14|| ||Abdel Irada: <FYI, there is one member here who uses "feckless" almost as much as you, and you'll *never* guess who. :P>|
I would have thought past tense more appropriate, since if this member is who I think it is, he hasn't said it (or anything else) in some time. (And I suspect most of us would prefer to keep it that way.)
|Jan-12-14|| ||Gregor Samsa Mendel: Actually, User: chrisowen seems to be fond of incorporating "feckless" as an ingredient in his delightful word salads.|
|Jan-13-14|| ||Abdel Irada: I noticed that, too. But I still don't think his use measures up to the Parvum Innominandum.|
|Jan-13-14|| ||tpstar: 1) Aronian vs Anand, 2013 An opening bombshell by Anand leads to a shockingly quick win. Bonus points for the setting and the opposition.|
2) Anand vs Carlsen, 2013 Carlsen's legendary fighting spirit wins the WC title in style.
3) Morozevich vs V Laznicka, 2013 Black's minor pieces have a field day yet Moro hangs on until the endgame.
4) Wang Hao vs A Giri, 2013 Cute crush at Giri's expense.
5) Ding Liren vs Aronian, 2013 Brilliant attacking game finishing with a Q+R mating net.
6) Mamedyarov vs A Giri, 2013 Shak Diesel.
7) Nakamura vs Caruana, 2013 An opening preparation win by a player not particularly known for his opening preparation.
8) D Dubov vs Shirov, 2013 An inventive and inspired sacrifice by Shirov.
9) Ivanchuk vs Kramnik, 2013 This game had a profound effect on chess history, allowing Carlsen to advance as the Challenger.
10) Kramnik vs D Andreikin, 2013 Beautiful RR over Q endgame by Kramnik who ruled the World Cup.

|Jan-14-14|| ||WannaBe: ☺|
|Jan-14-14|| ||OhioChessFan: You know how you want to point out something to reveal wrongdoing, but in advertising it you warn people off? For example, I knew a woman who was pretty sure her teenage son was visiting some sites online that she didn't approve of. She asked how she could verify that. I suggested she check the history cache after he signed off. She happily reported back to me that it was normally empty. And, of course, that was pretty strong evidence he was visiting those sites. I am a bit surprised how many parents can't connect the dots on that one, but if it's publicized somewhere, it will warn the kids off of that dodge. |
On a related note, I suspect I'm not the only person to notice a <very> discernible posting habit of a certain individual that is remarkably similar to a previous member of this site. Some allusions have been made as to whether certain individual is another incarnation of previous member. Certain indvidual is demanding proof they are in fact the previous member. Circumstantial evidence tells me that it is, and if I cited it, most reasonable people would agree. But if I cited it, it would warn off certain individual from the revealing posting technique.
Okay, I feel better.
|Jan-14-14|| ||WannaBe: Certain habits, e.g. posting/writing habits are hard to change, hence, therefore...|
(Take the example of serial criminal(s), there is always a pattern)

|Jan-15-14|| ||OhioChessFan: Thanks for compiling <tps>|
|Jan-17-14|| ||Domdaniel: Feck *less*?
I could try, I suppose.

|Feb-20-14|| ||Benzol: <tpstar> There is a possibility of a rematch with Nigel Short. Not sure if I can afford the fifty bucks, however.|
|Jul-20-14|| ||WannaBe: Doc. Not seen for a week, you on vacation? Better yet, playing in a week-long Swiss?|
|Aug-07-14|| ||Annie K.: Good luck! :)|
|Aug-07-14|| ||WannaBe: Good Luck with your new (ad)venture!!|
|Aug-30-14|| ||zborris8: <tpstar> I've been a lurker, but know that you have a keen ability to create witty puns for the CG puzzles. |
I've just submitted the game below -- See the position at the end of move 13, for potential puzzle, white to move:

I am writing to request a tpstar pun for this puzzle by "October", if you catch my "meaning", and you think it worthy of a CG puzzle, obviously. If not, well, at least CG grows by 1 fine game in the database!
|Aug-30-14|| ||tpstar: <zborris8> Nice to meet you. =)|
I saw that puzzle during the St. Louis broadcast and totally flailed on the solution. It would make for an excellent Daily Puzzle which would not require a pun, or else a great Game of the Day which would need a pun. "Mad Max" is already taken but maybe something utilizing "grave" would work. I hesitate to divulge my material now due to the rampant anti-Americanism on this site whenever Nakamura plays major events. But I'll sleep on it. ;>D
See you around.
|Aug-30-14|| ||zborris8: Hi tpstar, nice meeting you as well. When I submitted the .pgn I wrote in the description about the presentation of the game on the st.louis broadcast by Maurice Ashley, so hopefully the 'powers-that-be' recognize the game, and it goes through quickly - at least that way it will be in the website before you wake up, and you will not forget any puns you create in your sleep! |
