Always White below?

Always White below?

Is there an option to make the board always display with White below?

Always White below

That's an idea, I'll add it.

By the way, do should we call you Dhanish or Bhaskaran as a "first name" ? Indian names are still strange to me :)


P. Bhaskaran Dhanish    (2008-06-22 02:42:00)
Thankyou

Hi Thibault, Thankyou for your reply. And please call me by my first name, Dhanish.

india names - like chinese / french

i think some indian names are like chinese: [Chou En Lai's first name was Lai] some are like french [Jacues Derrida's first name was Jacques]

Derrida

What would Derrida make of a chess game, do you think? Is it a "text"?

What does Derrida make of a chess game?

Jacques Derida has conveyed to me: " The asuumption that "Jack Derrida is Dead" is Text, not fact, there being no such thing as the latter. So the question can be put as "What does Jacques Derrida make of a chess game? Is it 'text'?" Of course this entire post, including this paragraph, is 'text', not an argument. What is the subtext? What is the pretext for this post?


Mark Hailes    (2008-07-09 18:25:19)
Derrida

Yes I see, but Derrida's sensitivity to the social dimension of the aesthetic form and his comprehensive hermeneutic method make it possible to raise the question of the dialectical meaning of the ambiguities in the subtext of the game and the moves themselves, perhaps, are not a centre but the meaning of the game.

Derrida

It's worth a glance :)

Derrida

Strongly advise against reading anything by the chap although I did enjoy his defense to being caught with a big bag of dope in prague - it was planted on him when he visited Franz Kafka's grave - hmmm yeah ok.

Derida - something missing!

We had text, subtext, pretext;) [my post], context, hypertext :) [thibalt's post] - yet all that is only post-post-structuralism. Something essential to Derrida is missing... - deconstruction!

Mark Hailes, I am disappointed you made a conventional response to my post; rather than deconstructing it!

Past Failing

Alas though my failing is something for which I have no redress. I can not now deconstruct the text of your original message as it was written then, because now, even if I achieved a text that was identical to that which I would have written then, the meaning would be altered by the need for it to be reinterpreted in the light of the assumptions and absences in the context of your latest message.

More deconstruction ..

Hi, complete out of context, but this link explains the difference between deconstruction and demolition:

standard categories

Its a purely cosmetic change but perhaps it would be better to adjust the rating categories to: 2200-2400, 2000-2200 etc because thats what they effectively are. Nobody with a 2400+ rating wil join the current 2200-2600 category - they would join the list for 2400-2800. It seems pointless to have the overlap.


Normajean Yates    (2008-07-13 04:52:23)
I MEANT DECONSTRUCTION

I *meant* deconstruction, NOT demolition, thank you!

oops, Rodolfo d Ettorre's post is maybe not aimed at me! But, today I celebrate paranoia day ;)


Normajean Yates    (2008-07-13 04:54:16)
Hahahaha !!

Oh, please follow Rodolfo's link! :) HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR POSTMODERNISTS ;)
