  whiteshark: Hello, everyone,

here's a shark's life sign:

Thank you for your concerns, but I'm very well!

I moved at the end of November last year for professional reasons and had no internet connection until now (I don't have a smartphone or TV anyway).

In my rare spare time I discovered new interests for me, so that I will probably post here only rarely in the future, too.

I wish you all the best

  fredthebear: So pleased to see you again <whiteshark>!!

Glad that you are safe, and happy for your new avenues. Life should be an adventure. You gotta keep moving forward, right? Thank you for the update.

Since your technology has been lagging, you probably missed my cousin Theo's 1 minute of fame:

Good luck!


Premium Chessgames Member

Oh thank goodness I am so happy to see you!!

  whiteshark: Easy come easy go.

I have lost my private internet access last week. I am writing this message from my work computer - obviously (and illegally).

I'll get back to you as soon as the situation has changed for the better...

  louispaulsen88888888: I am going through your Albin Countergambit collection. Some excellent games. I’m surprised though that you did not include Harmon-Borgov(1967?).

  whiteshark: More bad news :

In mid-September, I had a spontaneous retinal detachment on my eyes and have been severely visually impaired ever since.... I can see almost nothing on the screen, let alone read. My Premium expires in February - I don't think I'll be able to post much in the future.

Thanks to all for the great last 15 years here

Mein alter Freund Haifisch,

was haben alle nicht ganz ironiebefreiten

uns über deine Beiträge von Bügelmaschine,

spontanem Klamauk und feinsten

Beiträgen über das Brettspiel mit den

Türmen - in deiner persönlichen norddeutschen

Feder, nicht alles über die Jahre gestaunt

und herzlichst gelacht; dafür schulde dir

noch was.

Wenn du Hilfe mit der Recherche

deine Gesundheit betreffend brauchst

oder über einem Quatsch brütest schreib

doch einen Kontakt in den CG Header -

dort wo früher der Gecko lebte.

Das Kapitel hier hat sich wohl damit auch

für mich erledigt.

Glück auf du einzigartiges Nordlicht

Volle Segel voraus

Herzlichst dein reimender Idiot, Abendbrot!

  Stonehenge: That's awful news. You are one of my favourite kibitzers.

I hope you are doing well considering the circumstances.

Das war nur schrecklich zu lesen und ist

eine Minute später noch voll

in die Klamotten gefahren - und ich bin

eigentlich nicht alleine geographisch

überhaupt nicht nah am Wasser gebaut.

Pass bloss gut auf dich auf ...

  whiteshark: I just happened to end up here again because the holiday vacation apartment here has wifi.

To my great astonishment i still have a premium status.

<I would like to express my sincere thanks to the generous donor of this premium membership.<!>>

Now I will have the opportunity for the next four days to look around a bit here, when I'm not lying on the beach in the sun. ;)
