IIRC, he earned a B.Sc. in physics, a B.A. double major in Classics and Philosophy, and M.A. in Philosophy, in particular on Buridan's solution to semantic paradoxes.
    Thanks, I took the liberty of adding this further information to the article.

    You're welcome. I also think that pic is likely closer to 1990 than 2000; I think 1992–3. The adjacent game has my former pupil Shamnika Rupasinghe, now a doctor living in Melbourne, against Bill Ramsay who edited NZ Chess for a time and before that wrote a weekly chess column in the Dominion.

Any system which allows some people to exercise unbridled power over others is an open invitation to abuse, whether that system is called slavery or socialism or something else.”—Thomas Sowell

    Interesting info, I might edit it again. I recognised Bill Ramsay, but not your former pupil. Funnily enough Bill Ramsay made one of his very infrequent visits to the Wellington Chess Club on Thursday night. I don't really know him, but I did say "I put a picture with you in it on the internet the other day". I showed him on my phone, but as he said, "My eyesight has gone" and the photo resolution is very sad to begin with.
