WannaBe: <OhioChessFan: <Wannabe: For my next impression, I'll be NN. > You're <not>?!> Since Shakespeare were mentioned, here's a fun fact, back his days, women were not allowed to perform, so female roles had to be played by (young) male. In certain plays, where female ...

WannaBe: Hello <pp>, Saw your post, and unfortunately I have no idea how Facebook's referral/link to your blogging site works. My best guess, is that Facebook 'controls' it? You may want to email FB's support and see if they have input/clue to your issue. Sorry, I am not too much help
   Mar-30-17 Jennifer R Yu vs A Zatonskih, 2017
WannaBe: With the help of online endgame tablebase, black was OK until 57...Rd1+ that was the error. 57...Rh3, Rh5, Rh6, Rh7, or 57...Kb3, Ka4, or 57...b3 draws. Since you get +30s increment per move, not sure how much time was left when Anna decided to make the one move that cost her the ...

  WannaBe: They did an episode (on this theme) on the TV show Black Mirror

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Hilarious.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Genius! I love it.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Psssst, don't tell <Switch>, or <MostlyAverageJoe>, <7krzem7>, <Sastre>, or <shalgo> about this...

Or maybe that teacher is <MostlyAverageJoe>... They'll probably crack it faster than anyone!

At least you get video of folks cleaning

  WannaBe: Holy Guacamole, Rupert Murdoch have reported(ly) sold his $125M, that's MILLION stake in Theranos back to the company for $1.


Guess he is competing with Bill Ackman on who can lose more money, but as of right now, Bill's got him beat.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: In an interesting twist, Theranos promise to double your share of stocks if you promise to not sue.

Huh?? Who came up with that idea?

Premium Chessgames Member


Interesting name. Do you think his parents named him after their favorite TV show, <The Sopranos>, but had to shorten it after he was born because of a copyright complaint?

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Theranos is the company name, owner/CEO, founder is Elizabeth Holmes.

Been following this case/story for almost 2.5 years now...

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Not sure how many members here are following the story of USA Women's Hockey Team (boycott of upcoming tournament) by players.

I am firmly behind the players.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Strange, news articles said iOS 10.3 was released yesterday, but when I checked my iPad, it says my 10.2.1 is up to date.

Have apple already yank'd 10.3 because of screw ups, or does my (old) iPad not support it?

Have to do some diggin'...

  playground player: <WannaBe> I've been racking my brain for a week over a new computer problem. Once again, I turn to your wisdom.

Somehow my blog got accidentally disconnected from Facebook, resulting in a cessation of referrals from FB. I reconnected, and in two more days, referrals were back to normal. But then they stopped again, and this time I wasn't disconnected. There seems to be no reason for it.

Thureday is usually my best blog day of the week because then I get a lot of referrals from that's the day they publish my column. Today, zero. Never happened before--and again, there seems to be nothing wrong with the process of moving from the NWV page to my blog: but it isn't happening.

Do you have any idea what could be causing this? Is there anything I can do about it? Bearing in mind that I'm pretty close to being a complete idiot when it comes to computer stuff...

Thanks, in advance :)
