Personal Notes

Hello. I'm Russ Gadoury from USA, Boston, Massachusetts area. Retired, enjoy a good joke, and a good, hard fought game, win or lose. (Winning is more fun, but I get over the other kind soon enough). And, really, is there anything that can beat a well played draw?

You, me, all of us have hung Q/R/N/B/P. Please don't ask me for takebacks or moretime in rated games. Notes I've read, "No takebacks, no moretime, no mouseslips, no sympathy." And, "Even if your mouse slips, falls, breaks both legs, and is hopping around on little crutches, you're still not getting a takeback"

Team 4545 League is now an ICC helpfile. "finger team4545" for info, "help team4545" for rules.

"People are more violently opposed to fur than to leather because it's safer to harass rich women than motorcycle gangs." "guest2020 asked: why can't I connect to ICC?" Finally, asked: *How do i make my king and rook do the switchy thingy, and what is that called?"

Prince-Xizor: Can you be vague enough to fill us in on the generalities? Gomer(345): Can you guys stop for a second? I just poked my head in and am starting from the top. Youre typing faster than I can read :)

rgadoury(36): Have you read the Players Handbook? (36): why would i do that? Satan(36): i have to admit i haven't read the procedures yet, but has anything significant changed since T20? Polyglot(345): id be dysfunctional without my player handbook

Gooey(90): Before you criticize someone walk a mile in their shoes; that way, when you criticize them you'll be a mile away and have their shoes. BosqueVerde(345): The worst (best?) part of doing nothing is knowing when you're done.

i saw a movie about the boss of mafia al capone. they were wrong. it is rgadoury. :) - ChessJunior it was really painful to play this game. But i would prefer to die then not playing it --CJ "I love you so much mom." -great kid

heh says: "If you can't beat them, draw them and if can't draw them, take a photograph." Great style. Ring Lardner: 'Shut up!', father explained.
