|Nov-21-21|| ||stridergene: Amazing win by the Hungarians|
|Nov-22-21|| ||keypusher: Kind of a shame that we just have long lists of games for the Olympiads on this site. And yes, it was an amazing win for Hungary.|
|Nov-22-21|| ||Retireborn: <keypusher> See my comment to the Spassky-Timman game;|
Spassky vs Timman, 1978
I'd love to read a detailed account of this Olympiad.
|Nov-22-21|| ||Stonehenge: Olimpbase is the place to go to for Olympiads:
|Nov-22-21|| ||MissScarlett: <Q: One of the reasons why you wore this this black suit against Fischer was that it was Sunday. Has it ever been a problem for you to be a Catholic in a socialist country?|
P: Actually never, because they never dared say anything about it. When they realized I was a religious person I was already a well-known chess player. For example, the morning after we had won the Chess Olympiad in Buenos Aires in '78, me and two other players ran into the chief of the Hungarian delegation in the hall of the hotel. Well, he was a nice man, but a strong communist. And he said, 'Where are you going?' And I said, 'To church to give thanks that we won the Olympiad.' And his answer was, 'Yes, well done, well done. Go, go.' (Laughs) It was a bit funny and we started to laugh, well, smile at least, that a communist leader should say something like that.'> Lajos Portisch (kibitz #35)
|Nov-22-21|| ||Retireborn: <MissS> Thanks, that's a nice story.|
<Stonehenge> Glad you're still here, I'd heard you'd left.
Malwarebytes reports Olimpbase as phishing. Never had a problem with it before, is it still OK?
|Nov-22-21|| ||faulty: God really helped them. Check the final ten moves of Sznapik vs. Sax
Sax amazingly played with the pokerface after dropping a piece - and won|
|Nov-22-21|| ||Stonehenge: DuckDuckGo has no problem with it. A lot of chess sites get labeled as dangerous by antivirus companies for the simple reason they are offering 'games'.|
Maybe you can point out to them that their site report is incorrect.
For someone not already using a (third party) 'line of defense' while browsing you can manually feed e.g. virustotal.com (still the place to go for a reasonable online scanner aggregator). As for most providers there are several tabs with more or less interesting additional info.
One has to give props to OB they got their content type right, something that cannot be said for another chess site for ages.
Basically 'phishy things' ain't possible, if you only consume (reading) and do not interact with a target at all. On that front, ok.
|Nov-22-21|| ||keypusher: <stonehenge> Thanks, I'd been on that site years ago but forgotten the name!|
|Nov-23-21|| ||Retireborn: Been in touch with Malwarebytes and they confirm olimpbase is clean. No worries then.|
