    why my brain links unconnected events i'll never know,
    but it does...

    twenty years ago i bought several boxsets of cd's,
    the doors,
    the who,
    jimi hendrix
    smokey robinson
    the beach boys
    janis joplin
    and some others...
    i never removed the shrinkwrap, intending to hang on these for a nebulous future which i cannot see...
    who knows, they may be valuable someday...
    ...[text shortened]...
    do not remove the wrapping on yer "first ever" status,
    who knows???
    it may be valuable someday...
    Let's hope you have a CD player to play them on and BTW, you better keep them in a low humidity environment otherwise the little layer of aluminum dots will be eaten away and they are just then good for target practice.
    Get the old 78's, they will be good a THOUSAND years from now. And the players will be a lot easier to reproduce a thousand years from now when what passes for electronics in the future doesn't even have moving parts but is by then a carefully engineered virus injected directly into the brain, where you also get your technical training for your job of that far away future.....

    Lets be gracious and say that those three first days didn't really see so much action...only three finished games.

    First non-provisional rating and probably subscribing year 2005 would warrant to start there...

    If you want to be correct your date would be as indicated. If you want to be close well that is another story. Do you do this when doing the threads killed? 😉

    I believe it is called a 'glitch'! 😉 Or you hit the wrong button on your keyboard which made the message disappear. I've done that by accident.

    I can't believe I have been playing chess here for that long, but it's true.
    I was the 16th person to open an account here, and my first game was the 18th game played here.

    I feel old. 🙁
    You've been playing chess here for almost as long as I've been alive.

    Scary thought.

    Scary?
    I do not understand that.
    You frightened of old men?
