  Stonehenge: <PB> LOL
Apr-16-13  waustad: It appears that he may be originally from Liechtenstein, since he played for them in 2 Olympiads. His brother has only played for Liechtenstein in Olympiads, though both are now listed as Austrian on the FIDE ratings page.
Sep-17-14  waustad: Here is a picture of the brothers with Boris Gelfand's mother. It also indicates that they may have gown up in Minsk. http://chess-news.ru/sites/default/...

  technical draw: <offramp> <Could he of?>

Now I get it. My comment does sound awkward. Maybe I should mention it's the universal "you"?

  offramp: <Technical draw: You could of fooled me>

The phrase is "You could have fooled me." Have, not of.

  technical draw: Thanks <offramp>. Maybe I should go back to Mrs. O'Leary's 5th grade grammar class.

  perfidious: <td> Mrs O'Leary's room number is on the inside of the back cover of the Atlas, iffen ya git mah drift.

  technical draw: I don't want Mrs. O'Leary's room number. That was 55 years ago but she might still be there and remember me: "Oh, it's you TD. I see you weren't paying attention in class!" Whap! Right on the head with a ruler. No thanks, I'd druther not.

  HeMateMe: Was she married to the cop, who walked a beat, across from the medical center?
Apr-02-15
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <HMM> I don't think my Mrs. O'Lleary was even married. We called her Mrs. because she was old. We kids thought she was about 100 years old. In those days you never asked a teacher anything. You just tried to make yourself invisible.

  technical draw: You're right <offramp>. My main venue is Odd Lie but I occasionally drop by some games and try to get a laugh.
Apr-18-15  Jim Bartle: <My main venue is Odd Lie>

No, it isn't.

Apr-18-15

  technical draw: <JB> Yes, it isn't.

  offramp: <technical draw> I never go to the Odd Lie page, so it is no wonder I've rarely seen any of your 17,000 posts!

I'll have to start going there...

  offramp: I once criticized his endgame.

He just shrugged.

May-02-15  Absentee: <technical draw: "Oh, it's you TD. I see you weren't paying attention in class!" Whap! Right on the head with a ruler. No thanks, I'd druther not.>

Is "technical" your name or your surname?

May-02-15
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <Absentee>. You can call me Mr. Draw. But don't call me Mr.T cause you might get your lights punched out by the real Mr.T.
Apr-16-16  TheFocus: "So, Valery, do you want a draw?"

And Atlas Shrugged.
