offramp: <ndg2: C*** blocker> That is exactly what I thought, but I didn't have the b$%*s!! It would have been a <much> better pun.

offramp: <thegoodanarchist: Does anyone ever go "Aeropostale"?> This YouTube link leads to one load of prank soundboard phone calls based on an original call to an Aeropostale shop. The calls are very funny! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KS-...

offramp: In the French, if White gets his bishops on the two adjacent diagonals a1 to h8 and b1 to h7, then I am afraid a consumer-size can of whoop-ass awaits the black pieces.

   May-02-19 V L Wahltuch vs R P Michell, 1919
 
offramp: A very good game, a roller coaster. White plays 17.Bh6xg7. [DIAGRAM] It is a bit like the Lasker-Bauer ♗♗-sac, because later White plays 21.Qd7, forking Black's bishops. [DIAGRAM] But even after all this excitement the game is still more or less level. ***** ...

  thegoodanarchist: <mckmac: <TGA> This is a bit of a worry. Offramp is one of the pillars of the site.>

Agree, but I know the admins don't want to be messaging intermediaries. Not sure if they are even allowed to.

At least we know he didn't suffer some unexpected accident.

May-10-19  Tiggler: Classy way to sign off, IMO.
May-20-19  morfishine: Dear <offramp> If you are around, please let us know

Or if you are a square

Or of you are a rectangle

Whatever you are

Best, morf

May-24-19  spingo: Offramp says he is taking a brake. Probably a prolonged brake.

He is fine and using other websites. I think he is either annoyed with the admin or he made a huge blunder in a chess game that caused him to give up the game for awhile.

I know he uses |LiveLeak.

  catlover: I'm glad to know that he is taking a break for personal reasons and not because of a major health issue or some other tragedy. His sudden disappearance had me worried.

<Offramp>, your humor and chess observations are very much missed.

May-25-19  morfishine: <spingo> I hope Dear <offramp> is not taking a brake

How in the world will the machine stop?

  thegoodanarchist: User: travis bickle deeply insulted <offramp> in the Kibitzer's Café (kibitz #253449)

And of course the admins did nothing, because <TB> is no good.

One particular admin, not <Sarg>, likes to coddle the criminal element. After all that Daniel did for her, she stabs him in the back daily by coddling those who have done the most damage to Daniel's creation.

Jun-06-19  morfishine: It does look like in fact that our dear <offramp> has left the building

Not a mean word for anybody, with malice toward's none, <offramp> has decided to vacate the premises, so we admirers wonder, where is our dear <offramp>?

Jun-06-19  paavoh: He seems to be around, looking at his player page>: <Last seen Jun-05-19>

I would like to see him posting again, always fun to read what he has to say.

Jun-07-19  morfishine: <paavoh> What player page are you referring to? I went to Alan O'Brien Alan O'Brien and the last post was 11 weeks ago
Jun-08-19  paavoh: Hello <morfishine>, I went to the user:offramp page = here, blindly believing that would be the right spot?!

On the top of the page, there is now:
<Last seen Jun-08-19>. He's not posting though if that is what you meant.

Jun-11-19  morfishine: I guess soon, Dear <offramp>'s membership will expire, and this area will become a deserted wasteland

But I guess that's the life cycle anyways

  Count Wedgemore: Well, let us hope for the best, <morf>. There is no doubt in my mind that <offramp> is one of the funniest kibitzers to have ever graced <chessgames> with his presence. I hope this is only a hiatus of sorts, and that he will come back. And if he doesn't, I hope at least these forum pages filled with his incredible wit can be archived and preserved for posterity.
Jun-16-19  morfishine: <offramp>'s "last seen date" keeps changing every couple of days, advancing 2-3 days
