Sep-17-13  achieve: Yes, Hans Arild, I sent you an email awhile back but you haven't responded. But more importantly: how are you?
Sep-17-13  Thorski: Mr. Runde, like so many of us, is probably a busy man unwilling to spend his free time making the kind of compromises necessary to enjoy this mostly wonderful site. My own premium membership is about to expire and I'm certainly not crazy about continuing to support CG until the staff demonstrates its willingness to deal with destructive users more resolutely.
Sep-17-13  achieve: Couldn't agree more. And it's obviously tough outthere; yet your point stands.
Sep-17-13  Karpova: <frogbert> is still active here: Anand-Carlsen World Championship (2013)

He's had a rough time though:

Sep-20-13  achieve: heh heh - very reassuring. That pic I mean.
Oct-14-13  frogbert: Two photos from a dinner during Norway Chess 2013, May 17th 2013.

In first picture (more or less visible): Wang Hao, Teimour Radjabov, Peter Svidler, Vishwanathan Anand, Jran Aulin-Jansson (president of the Norwegian Chess Federation, Hikaru Nakamura and Hans Arild Runde -

In the second one - also more or less visible: Espen Agdestein, Wang Hao, Levon Aronian, Sergey Karjakin, Jon Ludvig Hammer, Teimour Radjabov and Hikaru Nakamura -

  Bureaucrat: Hey, you're still around! I didn't notice those pictures until now.

Will you be working as a chess commentator for VG during the match in Chennai?

Nov-14-13  frogbert: Certainly - as you probably know by now! :o)

The round 4 coverage on VGTV so far has been seen by more than 480 000 viewers, the big majority of which <during> the game yesterday. That's a nifty audience!

Yesterday's TV broadcast:!/video/74316/o...

  Bureaucrat: Hey ho, frogbert!

Well done with the VGTV shows! Such broadcasts should really have been prevented from reaching my office computer! :-D

Good entertainment, and even my old dad got hooked on chess.

Dec-24-13  brankat: Hi <frogbert>!

Wishing You all the best for the coming Holiday season!

Dec-25-13  Rolfo: God jul Hans Arild!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Bureaucrat: God jul, frogbert!
Dec-28-13  MarkFinan: Ey up Frogbert.. I thought you'd left for good a year or so back but I noticed you've made a few posts this year.

I just wanted to know if you fancied another game on fics one night? I've improved a lot since we last played (no woman no cry n all that!) so I'd love another shot?

If not, I wish you all the best in life and hope you're still actively playing in tournaments and leagues. From what I can see it was good old Tpstar that pushed you away, but he's a lost cause, so come back because you've more to offer on a chess level here than he ever will. He beats you at accidental comedy though 😉

Peace out mate.

  Domdaniel: < both wrt arbiters and the occasional police officer you might walk by on the street. excessive, seemingly none-purposeful movements might get you in trouble.>

An interesting idea, <Frogbert> -- but I think it qualifies as clinical paranoia.

The notion that those in authority are paying close attention to one's bodily signs is a well-known artefact of hallucogenic drugs. To the day tripper, every authority figure is watching.

I wrote an MA thesis on 'cultural paranoia' - whatever that is - in the novels of Thomas Pynchon. I gave up coffee a while back, and paranoid thought makes increasingly less sense.

A paranoid thought: you're not around here, are you? Hello? Earth calling Hans-Arild... Earth calling...

<frogbert> has reappeared in a post dated 12-11-2015: London Chess Classic (2015)

Greeting, Hans Arild!

Dec-12-15  rogge: Currently hosting the live coverage of LCC on

  moronovich: Hi<rogge> !

Good to see <frogbert> in action! Brings good memories.

Dec-12-15  rogge: The good old days, eh?
Premium Chessgames Member
  moronovich: <rogge: The good old days, eh?>

Definately !

Dec-12-15  frogbert: <A paranoid thought: you're not around here, are you? Hello? Earth calling Hans-Arild... Earth calling...>

Domdaniel, what's being around? ;) What was the thing you quoted, btw? Something I wrote in an earlier life, maybe? :)

Greetings, rogge and moronovich! I'd wish today's game would've ended much earlier than it did, but there is still some saturday left. Since I'm being payed by the round and not by the hour, I certainly prefer Carlsen to win when he decides to cut my hourly wage in half like today. ;)

Dec-12-15  rogge: High probability of long working hours when Carlsen's playing :)
Dec-12-15  Rolfo: <..Since I'm being payed by the round and not by the hour, I certainly prefer Carlsen to win when he decides to cut my hourly wage in half like today. ;)>

You will catch up when play offs and speed chess begin, many rounds then :) Btw, hello frogbert

Premium Chessgames Member
  moronovich: You should be payed by the number of moves <frogbert> :)
Apr-05-17  User not found: Wow. So here's me and Frogbert (a nice bloke!) in 2012 talking chess, even playing chess and who comes along causing Frogbert trouble?! The OFFENDERS posts have been deleted but there's enough to see who the bad people are.
