    What was the highest rating achieved here? Computer use aside, who had the highest rating and when?

    Probably David Tebb, who has got very close to 2400 a few times.

    It's not possible to reach 2400+ in here without first speaking Norwegian. Pretty much anyone 2400+ is going to be a juksende drittsekk with a craving for diesel. Don't see much point in arguing about it really.

    Diesel?

    You are way behind the times Atticus. They run on electricty these days.

    Anyway, I'm pretty sure this lad User 1180 has not yet used a
    computer for any of his moves.

    Also there is something about this chappie User 609906 I can't quite figure out.
    Fancy calling yourself that on this site of all places. 🙂

    hey GP i was watching a Danny Kopec video on youtube and he used some of your
    mating positions from your collaboration on mastering chess. He even flashed a
    picture of you with a rather beguiling smile on your face. In fact your diagrams were
    the only clear thing about the presentation, he insists of using pretentious words for
    simple concepts which leads to nothing but obfuscation. He needs his bum felt.

    Infact, here it is, i hope he weighed you in with some mulla for your troubles!

    Don't I know it! I'm still working through Revolution in the 70s. Once I've cracked that little lot, I'll be just thirty years behind. 🙄

    Im pretty sure User 558671 has the highest rating without computer assistance.

    Easy to determine mathematically.

    a) get OTB rating e.g. for the pumpkin eater 1500

    b) get RHP rating 2400

    If (a-b) >= a couple of hundred then ...............
