Well, the wait was long but they both look pretty good to me! Smiley



Agreed!  

Thanks for getting it done before the end of the year.  My download finger has been itchy and now it has been sated.


Best wishes for a most successful year in 2009!  Smiley
  

I know I've made some very poor decisions recently, but I can give you my complete assurance that my work will be back to normal. I've still got the greatest enthusiasm and confidence in the mission.

Today I've reiceived a letter from an old friend:

Dear Templare2

I was so glad to get your letter. It's quite a confort to hear you after  30 years.

Not long from now, I'll be leaving the North Pole for my long
trip on Christmas. Although it's a long journey, I am looking
forward to visiting Chess Publishing.com


I must go now to check on the busy little elves in the workshop
where they are making all the  gifts for the good boys
and girls. I think I saw them making a new update for you!
We will be loading the sleigh soon!

The reindeer and I are planning to reach Chess Publishing.com
just after midnight to deliver the October update. Please be sure that Tony hangs the stocking and be in bed early.

Thank you for remembering Rudolph


Merry Christmas and Warmest Wishes!

Santa

OK but:

Where's the october update?

I'm still waiting to receive it. In the meantime Richard has started on the November one so there should be two up before the end of the week.

Igor Nataf, Mark Hebden, or Gawain Jones would all be awesome choices.

How about a young gun, on the up eg England's boards 3 (David Howell although I appreciate he is more Grunfeld) or 4 (Gawain Jones) at the recent Olympiad ?

I don't suppose Radjabov would be available  Cheesy

That would be great! If I double the subscription price we might even be able to afford him! Wink
My choice would be Mark Hebden, and every year I ask him, but he always refuses!

Tony - good to see your on the case. Any idea when even one of these updates may turn up ? (Igor Nataf would be my choice if he's available)

Either that or just find reliable contributors in all sections. Can it be that hard...?

Yes, apparently! PK has already given up although he is now two months behind!! Time to look for a long-term replacement again, requiring: good English, good KID knowledge, and ... punctuality!! Roll Eyes

Basically seems that a number of pro chessplayers may never have had a 'proper' job where such things as reliability and punctuality are required as standard practice.

Maybe the new FIDE rules introduced for the Dresden Olympiad obliging players to actually be present at the start of games may improve timekeeping, increase watch-wearing and filter down to Tony's crew in time....

Either that or just find reliable contributors in all sections. Can it be that hard...?
