Jan-17-06  Amoceann: I think David E Vigorito and D Vigorito is the same man. I mean, there's 2 duplicates, one is different from my link (sorry).
Jan-01-07  letekro: Very nice guy as well as a strong player. I just played him in a tournament (he won, of course) and he graciously offered to help me clean up my scoresheet afterward (it was G/45 and I had numerous missing move pairs).
