Most inaccurate: Roger Perry aged 75 - but we both played in the National Schoolpupils event which Chandler won in 1974

Also amusing: FM Bob Smith aged 47 - but I distinctly remember when he was taller than me (even without sitting on the back of his chair)

Most startling change of appearance: FM Nic Croad - check out his photo: you didn't know he had an identical twin did you? :lol:

LOL! Roger wouldn't be a day over 47! Glad to see him more active again in recent years. For those who don't know, he is yet another ex-OCC man, contemporary with Tony D and myself.)

For some reason, Bob Smith's age is often cited erroneously. He would be a quite considerable number of days over 47!

Did you mean 'days' or 'years' Jonathan? He must be around 5 or 6 years older than stated.

OK, about 2880 days then! (Thanks Bill, you are always fantastic with numbers)

I know he is not a Kiwi but Australian Steven O'Reilly is apparently going to be born in 2032. http://ratings.fide.com/card.phtml?event=3211118

The server records say that birth year was added by the Elista office on Jan 20 and I think they were doing some testing around that time. Anyway, the change request has now been put in for Steven's correct birthday (1982).

Wow, It's already been fixed :eek:

I pointed out to an NZCF official that Perry's birth year was wrong absolutely ages ago (um, around 2002 or 2003) so the combined efforts here - of ACF and FIDE - is definitely a much quicker response!

Scott: Maybe start an Aussie blooper thread elsewhere?

LOL. For those Aussies who don't know Stephen Lukey, the picture give for Nic is actually a younger Stephen! How on earth did even FIDE, who we know to be incompetent at the best of times, manage that?

It is actually my internal phone directory photo from work!

I am pretty sure it was sent off for an accreditation photo for Khanty - they obviously then just used it for Nic when he replaced me in the team!
