  technical draw: Me parece que Manuel le debe a Francisco por lo menos una cerveza por ese mate ridiculo.

Do you guys know about google's capability as a translator? Well, not many people do, and I was wondering if you could provide a link in your FAQ to this version of (the translated version google creates): This could make it easier for the Spanish kibitzers to follow along, although not many people will still understand them when they say anything since it's a one way street of sorts.

Jan-05-05  fgh: Interesting..
Feb-01-05  Flo: Is there a translator for german visitors, too?
Feb-01-05  hintza: <Flo> Yes, there are many languages available. Just visit and enter the web address of the page you wish to translate, and the languages you are translating to and from, and then hit "Translate". However, a word of caution: these machine translations are good for understanding the general content of something, but they are often innacurate or give strange results.
Feb-05-05  Flo: <hintza> Thx for the web address! I tried it and it worked, but as you said: there are very strange results. But it's OK and it helps a little bit to use!
Mar-31-05  peanut: try this,
I believe its still free. ;)

  TheAlchemist: "Matto" = "crazy" in Italian
Jan-23-06  notsodeepthought: <TheAlchemist> True, but also - and sadly fitting, in this case - "mate." As in "scacco matto" - checkmate. Perhaps black just wanted to live up to his name.

  TheAlchemist: <notsodeepthought> both senses :-)
Feb-22-06  MorphyMatt: lol, black was doing fine until he allowed mate in 1!
Feb-22-06  RookFile: Modern chess at its best.
Mar-17-07  coolbob: Anything wrong with 5.Qxd4?
Jun-12-09  WhiteRook48: not sure
Jul-31-18  posoo: lol when da old posoo DOS lose, he losses like DIS - spactaculary!
Jul-07-20  sea7kenp: 6 ... Nd7 looks a lot like a Helpmate move.
Jan-19-22  JimmyVermeer: It's very similar to Serrano vs. Dorado (1994), except for the route White's knight takes to get to e4.
