Re: you're welcome illiterate jew
Blends? Single Malts?
not really sure, I never wanted to get the name, or try them again. I would categorize them in the gross, tastes like a liquid ashtray, and maybe i should mix this with something groups.

Re: Fresh meat
Hey dogma--I'm Omnivorous at chess.com. Send a challenge at any tiime.
That goes for other players in this thread as well. I need more games, and I'd rather play EvCers than strangers.

Omnivorous notes:
Chess is complex.
Yes it is. But it makes my head hurt, like Catholic Scientist's cartoon of Jackie Chan...
So is Go (Weiqi, Baduk....)
I have spent of bit of time studying this game, but I am so poor at it after all that. I saw that I would have to do a thick collegiate concentration at my study of it. And somehow the result in my case was unsatisfactory. The Ko rule is very nice in practice, but very bad in theory - the opposite of the usual state of affairs. But Go is lightyears ahead of avoiding stupid rules on so many games, like Chess or Shogi. For a while it seemed that Go was so perfect you could almost imagine, when the aliens arrived on Earth, asking them how big their Go board was - so as to get a measure of how smart they were. But....this was quickly squashed by the various different rule sets for what should be a simple rule set - especially when it came to Seki or Super-Ko.
So, for awhile I fell into designing my own abstract games....
Years later I have seen that this is even a much worse trap into obsessive darkness than being a singer/songwriter, which I still am.

Omni just defeated me kindly...he could have really toyed with me had he been sadistic!
So I'm open for anyone to challenge me....

Re: ChessLife
That makes:
Omnivorous: 4
Phat: 1
Dogmafood: 1
caffeine: -1
fearandloathing: -1
Jon: -2
frako: -2
Unless we get a slew of new folk to play, there aren't enough games left to change the first place ranking as far as I can tell.
Thus:
1st Place: Omnivorous
