Re: Over here!
Omni's quite the clever player. I've been forked by his knight in our single game more than I've ever forked anyone in all my playing!
I just had a look at your game, and the first thing that struck me was that I didn't think I'd ever see anyone open with f3 before. I went and looked it up on wikipedia, and thought you might be interested in their assessment:

As Phat has been pointing out to me, my game as of late has been horrible. I told him my brain is deteriorating; I can't think of what else it could be.

Re: you're welcome illiterate jew
You should really say Scotch, instead of Scots.
They love it.

The above ontological example models the zero premise to BB theory. It does so by applying the relative uniformity assumption that the alleged zero event eventually ontologically progressed from the compressed alleged sub-microscopic chaos to bloom/expand into all of the present observable order, more than it models the Biblical record evidence for the existence of Jehovah, the maximal Biblical god designer.

Yes, that Phat is an animal.

Well, it was going okay up till the inevitable moment of idiocy. I hate that sinking feeling that suddenly hits you just as your finger's clicking submit, but too late to reverse the action. I thought the point of correspondence chess was that you have enough time to think and not lose pieces just because you've forgotten about a bishop!
Oh well - mine and Jon's game is here.

Bishop v Rook
Ouch.
I'd offer my sympathies, but they'd be crocodilian.
Hardly decisive, though. I've always thought the bishop is undervalued vis-a-vis the rook--especially when it means breaking up a bishop pair.

I always thought scotch was sticky tape and gross whiskey.
well if they love it, then I'll spread the love like I always do.

Caffeine vs fearandloathing
Since I am just a few moves away from being checkmated by Omnivorous (but too stubborn to resign), I've challenged fearandloathing to a game.
Am I right that there's just five of us playing? If so, once Omni's finished me off, I guess the scores will be:
Omnivorous: 2
Phat: 0
fearandloathing: 0
Jon: -1
caffeine: -1
