    It was yesterday, at some Greek taverna, whist Manchester City and WHU played their game and over second bottle of Keiser beer.

    I came in from the beach from swimming (I did 60 minutes´ tae bo for old grandmothers in low watter and then swam a bit. I changed in a cute cabin like from movie about Monsieur Hullot. I was wearing bermudas on bare butt. I changed sandals, too.

    I came into this restaurant with beach bag full of wet stuff and beach mat and all this.

    And I took out my iphone which I used only a s a camera and voice recorder.

    And I asked for a password for Wi-Fi.
    And I joined the network.

    It was difficult to remember what to do, to find Google. Finally I tried "Safari" and that was it.

    I typed redhotpawn.com.

    I found it. I managed to log-in with my frikadelle-fingers on little screen of iphone 4.

    And I realized I cam play on the phone!
    Quite amazing. I forgot the game, City was attacking in efforts to equalize, but I couldn´t care less.

    I saw a new Hardcore tournament began. Reveal Hidden Content
    Some player resigned both games without a move and made me sad about it.


    The first available game on my phone was against vpadilla7.
    And I played 1. e4 on September 19th, 20:20 Greek time, 19:20 CET.

    So I did it, I made my very first move on iphone.

    I'd always assumed that one of the stipulations in that massive bailout package that they finally nutted out for Greece was that vandervelde would leave the country.

    e4 was the first move in a RHP game for over 5 millin times.

    For that occasion soemthing more exotic would have been called for, don't you think?

    Thanks. Small step for a gadget world but a giant one for a fountain pen user.

    If Neil Armstrong had tried to say this, he'd have probably said 'One small step for fountain pen user but a giant step for fountain pen users', so I'm glad you got it out right.
