Any first name that scores highly on the scrabble board is a bit iffy if you ask me. Do you get a moneyback guarantee within 7 days if not satisfied?
Last chance if you continue to be an idiot I am going to remove you.

Re: Unwritten rules on epitaphs!?

What's the point Assuming the question is in the context of the `substantive point` I referred to, the original question was whether there is too wide a range of obituaries being shared on this forum. Sad as it is I think I am really not sure we need to be searching and posting for every chess play...

There are a couple of inactive Matthew Fletchers on the grading list, one from Hull the other from Gloucester. Neither are me.
I will remove a couple of posts if James does not clarify soon.

Re: Server Move

At some point I am going to move this server to a different machine and operating system for various technical reasons and this naturally is going to be very disruptive. More news as and when. Carl, However long it takes I'm sure nobody will mind. Out of curiosity which OS are you migrating to ? No...

Much of "talk radio" in the US ended up as a hard right ghetto dominated by "shock jocks".
A warning here too on the language used.

I'm not a troll, I'm here under my own identity. Please come and speak to me one day face to face at a chess congress.

Hi Simon,

Lara says Alex is doing find and expects to be fit before OTB chess starts up again,

She also added that he is using this to get out of housework...er...oops!...hello Alex, are you OK mate?
Keeping him off the computer is perhaps too much of a challenge even for Lara :roll:

While I am out here developing chess in Malta you guys sit at home living with your mothers and spewing nonsense on a chess forum that attitude reeks of failure, envy and low intellect.

I was watching the database size behind the scenes at 499.99 MiB as that is more of interest.

We had a thread on this subject. It was good. But not this one.
Correct.

I have to come and read some of the other more childish posts which might mean some people get an enforced break from posting.
