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.

You're a fucking genius. This is exactly what's happening.
People are seeking out old books, films--even pop music.

Sorry to hear that, Ronster. I got that back in late 2018 -- the day after Thanksgiving. I was fine that morning as we drove up to a little town NW of the city. Climbing out of the car, I suddenly felt woozy. I was able to drive back, but for a while I really couldn't function well. My doctor prescribed Valium, which didn't work, and neither did Dramamine, not really. I had to go to physical therapy, which did clear it up.

On the plus side, my doctor wrote me the now-famous letter exempting me from wearing masks because of it.

180 Psaki had a hard time defending the WH requiring employers to require vaccinations, when illegal immigrants aren't required to get jabbed.

The answer is that the WH (more specifically CoS Ron Klain) knows it's unconstiutional for the government to force shots, but that he can use OSHA employment law as a work-around.

This is another step in their plan for corporate-enforced fascism.

The Chinese have a SCS SOSUS.

If the Red Chinese can stomach the casualties, subs run out of ammo before they run out of ships. Plus 10,000 missiles hitting Taiwan.
The Taiwan has two underground airfields that can protect strike aircraft. But the runways are exposed, and have only a few CIWS as close defense.

I think only children on Red Chinese ships is a limiting factor. But XI is turning into Stalin.

Disagree. The existence of Taiwan defines a possibility to Chinese citizens that MAYBE they didn't choose wisely in having the CCP rule their lives. I think the CCP sees the Taiwanese way of life as an existential threat. Just my opinion.

351 332. Yes Fen is correct. Biden was at Ground Zero and later at Shanksville with Jill and two black individuals whom I do not know who they were other than obligatory Democrat props. No speeches. At Shanksville he and the other three stood in front of a wreath being dedicated in front of the wall of names. Ir was bizarre.

356 Team Biden was supposed to release details about Saudi involvement in 9/11. But Bush 43 led America to somehow think it was Iraq. We didn't need to go there. This is awkward for the Bushes and some in the Deep State.

We did need to go to Afghanistan to kick ass and get bin Laden. This should have been short. Bin Laden's avoiding capture was an excuse to keep us in Afghanistan.

Posted by: Molly k. at September 11, 2021 06:24 PM (H1AD2)

I was talking about both the SD & ND D1 (FCS) schools. ND joined the Big Sky and I believe SD was interested. NDSU and SDSU apparently weren't all that enamored with the idea mainly because the conference covers the entire West with schools in MT (2), ID (2), UT, AZ, CO, WA, OR, & CA(3) and travel costs would have been prohibitive. ND's last year in the Big Sky I think was last year.

366 @ Ronster - Vertigo is a bitch! Usually thought to be caused because of crystals in the ear doing some funky stuff, but I don't think that's the only thing which causes it. IF it turns out to be your ears, and doesn't resolve, there is a non-medication physical therapy which worked really well for me. Look up benign positional vertigo treatment on you tube. Of course there may be other issues, like low blood pressure, or a combo of things.

I can't make the arithmetical notation work for me so that must not be it or I'm not understanding how it works well enough.

So. . if you would; what notation is being used?

BTW: White rook moves and takes the black knight. king must remove the rook but then the white queen moves to the end black row and checkmates black.

I can figure the moves. I just can't put them or read them using the notation.

Posted by: Ignoramus at September 11, 2021 06:48 PM (ZHVt1)

375 I am enraged and need somewhere to rant so, here goes.

I read a lot. 75-100 books a year. Its partly how I relax, partly how I control my raging imagination, and partly how I learn to write. I don't have much money, so I get a lot of books from the local library. I order books to be held on line, go down and pick them up. Remember that part.

Which shut down in winter 2019 to renovate and earthquake-resistance the building. In early 2020 they opened up a temporary location and you could get books from there... except everyone went batfuck insane and shut down the world because of the sniffles. So the library was still not available.

So they came up with a cunning plan: you could get books, at the new location, if you got a scheduled appointment where you could go get the books outside in a plastic bag because... apparently that's germ free or something.

The problem is, they decided that you didn't have to return books, and would get no fines added until the 14 days to flatten the curve was over.

A year later, they still were doing this, except intermittently the whole place just shut down without warning...

That sucks. My husband only does ebooks from the library. I buy cheap books, and we have a home library.
I assume they eventually resumes wanting the books back.

Posted by: CN at September 11, 2021 06:52 PM (ONvIw)

381 ...and lo and behold as people checked out more and more books without bothering to return them, fewer and fewer books could be put on hold. My mom has had 8 books sitting on hold since February 2020.

Meanwhile all this time we had books that had been checked out since January of 2020, just before the shut down. I tried to return them 5 separate times and each time there was another reason that the place was shut down and not available information not on any website connected to the library. Just nope, Fuck you. Cannot drop them off. OVer and over.

Finally we got those turned in, just before the deadline. There was a whole week right before they reopened, between when they closed the temporary place and opened the proper location when you could not turn in books. So I managed to get them snuck into the library on the 1st, finally...

Posted by: CN at September 11, 2021 06:54 PM (ONvIw)

383 ...So finally, after more than a year, the library was opened again on September 1 yay! Now they are starting to charge fines again, and theoretically books will be returned. Theoretically. So I put books on hold. They start showing up. We get 4 and I figure, well that's enough to start with, so we'll go down and get them.

The library is closed again. You have to make an appointment to get books off a shelf where they are stored for holds and check them out yourself at little kiosks. You set a time and date and drive up and they bring you the books from the library.

Do they... not WANT people reading? Do they want the Library to just not be available at all? Do they just want to screw with me personally?

I cannot just get out and go do stuff any old time. I have poor health, and no car. I have to rely on others to do stuff. I cannot just whip out any time I want. And they're making it harder and harder to actually do anything.

All because of a fucking virus that has a lower than .05% lethality rate??? I just want to punch someone's face until its paste.

389 @Ronster, you are welcome.

The first time I had raging vertigo - I had a weird event the day before. I got up in the am, went to the kitchen and reached into the cupboard for a cup - and blackness rolled over me. I had enough left in me to get myself on the floor - but barely. I felt retched that whole day, spacey and weak, disconnected and a bit of trouble to communicate. Woke up at 4am with my world tumbling over and over - I smashed into walls, I didn't seem to have control of my limbs. That day at the hospital was bizarre, because my body felt sort of a little paralyzed, but I was afraid to say that to the staff - they were already treating me like I was taking up room. Fuckers. (excuse the swearing)

Posted by: GrandeMe at September 11, 2021 07:27 PM (ytutJ)

Frankly, I wonder if they want to be open at all.

Are there a lot of quakes in Oregon?

I have lived here since 1969 and we had one 5.6 in 1993 earthquake. Theoretically we could have more, but its not like we're living on a fault line.

I think its some kind of law that all state and city buildings have to be to a certain level of earthquake safety.
