    not necessarily , as we would all be very discreet, perhaps at a comfortable distance , all wired into WE's inserted ear phone.
    Offering tactical,strategical advice at appropriate times.

    ...failing all that perhaps WE could start a thread on his progress , where he could receive valuable feedback assisting a smoothly executed operation.

    I can only imagine the suggestions I would get:

    Spiny: Hey WE it's time for some French!
    Gunner: What about Spanish....
    Axiom: I wonder if she is into pawn....

    Hot chick: You guys are disgusting...I'm going home.

    (like Spiny, I think its time for a job change)
    The way things are going, that 'horse riding prohibited' sign may well come down soon.

    I think this idea's got real potential WE. So when you're out on your date, if you see us loitering with intent ... RUN!

    Well she's a uni student so I don't know if she's into fine dining. I was thinking a late night walk along the beach...we have a place here called St Kilda with a long pier from which you can see the city skyline across the bay. Very romantic

    Chess, The Musical

    Highlight of my day after 8 hours at work was listening with my wife to one of my favourite musicals on CD during and immediately after dinner - Chess, of course. Most of the time now, though, I am listening to HMS Pinafore, as in less than 3 weeks a 7 show season opens of it in which I play the role of the boatswain (pronounced bosun).
    And my favourite Chess song? - Opening Ceremony, with the arbiter's song.
    And I predicted my new rating with 100% accuracy - having checked. Due to the aforementioned HMS Pinafore I played zero games in the last 3 months so my rating is unchanged at 1579.Now about to read some more of Neal Stephenson's second novel of his The Baroque Cycle trilogy, The Confusion, where I am up to page 700 of 800+. Refer favourite books etc. thread.
    God exists. Short and to the point.

    Secretary of, and regularly arbiter at, Rooty Hill RSL Chess Club. See www.rootyhillchessclub.org.

    Psephological insight. "Controversial will only lose you votes. Courageous will lose you the election." Sir Humphrey Appleby on Yes Minister.

    Favorite movie line: Girl friend Cathy to Jack Ryan in "Sum of all Fears". "What kind of emergency does an historian have?".
