    Of course, everyone supports that but we have to wait and see how things play out. Next year's tournament has already been awarded to Hamilton. Hopefully, that will be able to go off without a...
  4. CYCC and Canadian Open 2020 cancelled

    I just spoke to Ken Green, the organizer of the 2020 CYCC and Canadian Open in Mississauga. Given the local and national situation with COVID-19, it does not seem possible to put on these flagship...

    I use dropbox mostly to share files but they mostly backup files which are in a dropbox directory already and not files that I wasn't intentionally backing up.

    The only thing that Canada could have done differently was to shut borders more quickly and perhaps maintain stockpiles of supplies for Canada and not give them to China. They were deceived by the...

    The power grab which he was suitably rebuked for was not a shining moment. The gun bill is not a good thing but consistent with his election promises. As they say, elections have consequences. ...

    Justin Trudeau and the pandemic

    Although I mostly don't agree with much of his politics, and there are one or two false starts, I think he is mostly doing a good job during the pandemic. His briefings seem pretty good for the...
  10. Romania - Canada match for high rated junior players

    The Romanian Chess Federation has expressed an interest in playing a friendly match with the CFC. Likely the match will be played online, probably on Chess.com and would involve 8 boards with each...

    Only until the Democrats figure out how to print enough ballots with Joe Biden's name preselected.

    The election cannot be delayed by anything short of an atomic bomb going off.
  12. Megabase and One Drive auto backup and synching

    I tried to do an opening report in Chessbase and got a curious message that my reference database was missing. I look in the bases folder and indeed everything is gone. Now there should have been a...

    I am sure they won't be laughing at the countermeasures which will ensure that something like this can never happen again.

    Not to mention the collapse of the markets where they hope to sell their...

    I'm sure the RCMP will get right on that investigation. I think one of the NBC or perhaps MSNBC people tried that gambit unsuccessfully a few years ago with regard to twitter posts.

    MSM will tend to ignore it since they don't want to bite the hand that feeds them.

  24. Chess.com and allegations of cheating resulting in account suspension

    With everyone going online to play chess when regular over the board play is largely impossible, a trend has emerged.

    First off, chess.com has countermeasures which will catch cheating. I am...

    I think at some point we might start to rate regular games online as well but perhaps it is too soon until we are assured that cheating is not possible. Perhaps we can quick rate long games for now....
