    I am not going to elaborate any further, apart from saying that I wouldn't really pay too much attention as to who was who in that noble form of chessic activity in the 70s or early 80s!
    I am sure Bill is always willing to share a yarn from the old days, when brilliancy and talent combined with that inherent larrikin spirit helped to constitute what Aussie chess reality is about today!
    I am also sure that Bill, being an indispensable part of this tradition should one day publish his plethora of anecdotal reminiscences in a printed or e-book form.
    Combined with his excellent pieces of practical as well as entertaining and extremely useful advice to Chess players of all levels such publication would certainly sell well!
    (*) I have a collection of those articles somewhere but again it's up to Bill to reveal publication, article title etc!
