I know it's long after the race and the result is now posted but I actually looked at INITIAL MOVE because all chess games obviously have one but I didn't see the Spooner connection. If I'd visualised it as INITIAL move instead I'd have completed answer and solution. Another time maybe.

When I was younger (a long time ago) a friend of my Dad would have us in fits of laughter with his mixing up of words. He would take parts of two words that sort of meant what he wanted to say and merge them together to make a completely new word. We called them Dudleyisms in his honour.
I was so glad that you moved my OS X 10.6.x thread to the boondocks of the Systems Admin board. It wasn't as if I wanted someone to see the post and maybe give me an answer.

A few hours later though...
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
