Saturday Afternoon Chess Thread 05-11-2019

(The Chess Players, James Northcote)


I'm currently offline attending the Pacific Northwest Moron Meet-up. CBD has agreed to post my weekend threads, so rather than burden him with having to add in the solutions later, I just attached them to the movie thread, which will be up in a couple of hours.

As always, the chess/dress pr0n thread is an open thread, so there is no such thing as an off-topic comment.


Easier Problem - White To Play (977)

Goal: It's a forced mate in 5, but the decision tree has no branches
Hint:


20190511 - Problem 1.jpg
3q3k/rp4pp/5pb1/rn2p1N1/7Q/B3P3/B4PPP/2R3K1 w - - 0 1

More Challenging Problem - White To Play (979)

Goal: Force Black to give up material or be quickly mated
Hint: The rook on c4 is low-hanging fruit

Since I'm not here, problem solutions will be posted in the movie thread.

___________

Note: that cryptic line of letters and numbers you see underneath each board diagram is a representation of the position in what is known as "Forsyth-Edwards Notation", or F.E.N. It's actually readable by humans. Most computer applications nowadays can read FEN, so those of you who may want to study the position, you can copy the line of FEN and paste into your chess app and it should automatically recreate the position on its display board. Or, Windows users can just "triple click" on it and the entire line will be highlighted so you can copy and paste it into your chess app.

___________

So that about wraps it up for this week. Chess thread tips, suggestions, bribes, rumors, threats, and insults may be sent to my yahoo address: OregonMuse little-a-in-a-circle yahoo dott com.

28 I'm finishing up a romance novel set in the Georgian era. Set in England with a hero that spent 10 years in Paris. The description of the clothing, powdered hair or wigs, the makeup and the facial patches in France at the time must have been frightening. And snuff and snuff boxes. Those 3 above look positively macho compared to some of the descriptions I have been reading.

31 I'm debating whether the person on the left of the painting is a young man (perhaps a teenager) with a piece of paper in his hand and a hairstyle that happens to look like a man bun or a young woman with a closed fan, in particular because of the facial features and the differences in the outfits in comparison to the players.

What romance novel is it? Georgette Heyer has some good ones set in that time period, but it's usually the Georgian period.

Posted by: FenelonSpoke at May 11, 2019 06:36 PM (FSPNP)

33 Fen. Most of Heyer's were Regency. Think Napoleonic wars. The Georgian era is 1750 or so. This is a Mary Balogh novel "Heartless" from 1995. It's ok, she's no Heyer.

Oh sorry; I read that wrong. One of her novels "The Devil's Cub mentions patches and hair powdering.

I really think though to apply modern standards of manliness to what people wore centuries ago doesn't make a lot of sense. There were probably fewer gay men-whatever they wore- in the late 1700's than there are now.

By the late Georgian era in England (1810s and early 20s) powdered hair and wigs were pretty much a mainstay of male servants and people from the previous generation who wouldn't get with the current times.

If you were a woman who wore a wig (and sometimes they were along the lines of Marge Simpson), the hair on your forehead had to be shaved a couple inches up for the wig to sit properly, and because that screwed up the placement of your eyebrows they were shaved off and replaced with fake eyebrows, also a bit further up. Mouse hair was often used for fake eyebrows.

Posted by: Vendette at May 11, 2019 06:42 PM (KpItb)

37 Fen. Just reread The Devil's Cub. The novel before it was These Old Shades which was set in the Georgian era. Lots of foppish men in pastel, with patches and powdered hair. I think The Devil's Cub is about 25 years later. In between the 2 periods.

Posted by: never enough caffeine at May 11, 2019 06:43 PM (N3JsI)

38 Heyer wrote 2 Georgian novels:

'These Old Shades" and "The Devils Cub"

Who knows about the numbers, but back then being gay could get you a date with a hangman's noose because it was illegal.

42 Maroon dress....very nice.

Asian gal.....cute as usual.

Kate.....cute, but needs to eat some cheeseburgers. Might fill her chest out a bit in the process too.

Melania.....speaks for herself.

That is all.

43 Yep. Styles change. Silks and pastel colors on men were once the height of fashion. Pantaloons and lace and high heels. Yep. Some were gay but the majority weren't. It was the style.

I was NOT going to fire Bob Mueller, and did not fire Bob Mueller. In fact, he was allowed to finish his Report with unprecedented help from the Trump Administration. Actually, lawyer Don McGahn had a much better chance of being fired than Mueller. Never a big fan!

45 The position on the board in the painting is clear, and I've been able to reconstruct it in Forsyth-Edwards notation:

4r3
pp4p1
1bp5
6Pp
PP1N2kn
1rPR4
8
3R2K1

Black is a bishop and pawn ahead in material, and this matches the captured pieces lying on the board.

It's White's move, judging from the expression on the Black player's face. I can't spot a specific threat, but maybe Re2 followed by Rb2 and White's king is in trouble.

46 I went to the Smithsonian American History Museum and saw the First Ladies' dresses (again). Lots of ooohing and ahhhing.

Melania's white silk inaugural dress was on display. I really liked that one - it looked like a calla lily:

Yes, that's why I think there was less of it because it was considered unacceptable and sinful and not just a "lifestyle" and orientation I'm not intending to get into a debate about homosexuality; There were always people who were gay; I just think percentage wise the numbers were probably smaller and I don't think men wearing patches and using fans is automatically indicative of that

Don McGahn, who is supposedly the president's "counsel," went to mueller and talked shit about the president, i.e., his client.

Then, McGahn, went back to the White House and resumed his role as "counsel," i.e., attorney, for the president.

Anti-seize is a paste of finely-divided soft metal particles in an oil base. It is intended to keep threaded joints from becoming stuck due to rust or heat, and also acts to seal taper thread pipe joints.

188 but I don't exactly understand why I'd chose one for some applications over the other"

Temperatures and outcome. "Anti seize" is for high heat applications (often seen on brake setups, etc) or any application where the bolt can "freeze up" (seize) thus becoming unmovable without damage.

Loctite is designed to hold a bolt in a given position up to certain loads.

Posted by: FenelonSpoke at May 11, 2019 07:47 PM (FSPNP)

Jane Eyre has been a BBC miniseries 3 times, in 2006, 1983 (with Timothy Dalton as Rochester), and 1973. It has also been a standalone movie several times.

Wuthering Heights has been done by multiple outlets as a miniseries and a movie, and there was a 1970 movie with Timothy Dalton as Heathcliff. Guy gets around.

227 Anti-seize is a paste of finely-divided soft metal particles in an oil base. It is intended to keep threaded joints from becoming stuck due to rust or heat, and also acts to seal taper thread pipe joints.

Most any auto supply shop has it in brush-top cans.

BITD, Army anti-sieze was very fine graphite in a petrolatum type base...

i used it on the Pig when i shot GPMG competitions, as it was a better lube than "break free", which wasn't for shit on automatic weapons.

before i scrounged a can of that from the OMS, i used 30 weight motor oil... it smoked like a rat bastard with that shit, but it kept chugging right along.

278 took my Dad's med recs from his recent hospital (to use a term loosely) stay to City of Hope, where we are trying to get him seen ASAP.

(advanced 3rd stage prostate CA with mets to the bone is nothing to dawdle with)

hadn't cracked the secret for the radiology discs they gave me the other day, so i didn't leave those, but it's just as well.

i tried a newer PC on the way home, and everything was from his stroke 4 Fing years ago, not the stay from a week and a half ago, and, of course, the shitbirds aren't staffed on the weekend either.

lazy, incompetent bastards.

They are a remarkable good buy at WallyMart and quite durable. I am now trying to figure how big the threadbare spot needs to be before I stop using them for formal dress.
