Hi jon19870, You are trying

Hi jon19870,
You are trying too hard. If you have a look at the source the editor is putting BR after each span.
Take away the line breaks and you shouldn't need the float.

Of course. Smile
Hmm. The ones that you have already I linked from here. I suppose I should have asked first. Apologies. Is that OK or should I move them to my host?

No that's fine, I'm glad you like them.
Initially I was planning to add smaller versions to the side profile box, but it started getting a little big. Having them in the footer looks good.
I will add the C# shortly, thanks.

Tyssen they are added manually to the signature, well that's what Verschwindende has done.
I don't really want to put them automatically into every signature. Badges are visible on the user profile page.

It's possible that you can, of course. There are around ten or fifteen people in this town of three hundred thousand that definitely can. But actually chess is the only discipline in which I have an actual official title based on merit. That title is "expert" and is one step below "master". It puts me in the top five or so percent of serious tournament chess players.

But I am well past my prime, having peaked in 1992 with a rating of 2138, which is 62 points below the magic 2200 rating which would have given me the "master" title. So at that time I was probably in the top three percent of serious tournament players. After that it was a gradual descent but my last rating, still shown on the Chess Federation of Canada web site was 2050, still above the expert level of 2000. And in my last tournament, still slightly less than a decade ago, it actually increased slightly.

I had hoped, upon retirement, to be able to spend the study time to get it up over 2200 but, alas my health has been slightly spotty and I tend to get real tired late in the game and make mistakes, which good players can pounce on.

Anyway, if you are better

Anyway, if you are better than me at chess so much more reason for a chess badge! Then if people start asking us for chess advice we might eventually force Tony to create a separate "chess" forum. Then it will be only a short step to taking over the entire board and stop all this talk about that boring old CSS stuff.

Submit! Our victory is inevitable. Resistance is useless. Stare

LMAO @ Ed. Ed, I seriously

LMAO @ Ed. Ed, I seriously believe you can dominate me in Chess. I was in the Chess club in HS, so I've been schooled in the fine arts of Chess. I stopped playing because everybody around me refused to play with me anymore. I just enjoyed torchering my opponents on the board. Nibbling at them littler-by-little until there was nothing left. My stratagy was not to win, but to torment and torcher! To break them down mentally to the brink of suicide. I often enjoyed seeing them jump out of 5-story windows.

This plan was invented around a hundred and fifty years ago by a German gentleman named Steintz, who parlayed it to the World Championship.

Unfortunately for it to work on good players you have to be really really good, and almost nobody who isn't already a master is that good. Most games are lost (not won) when someone drops a piece or pawn to a two move tactic, even between experts.

The most basic and effective plan in chess is to win something like a piece or more. If you have won enough so that it can mate on it's own trade all the other pieces off and use what you've won to effect mate. If not, then use the extra material to win even more material by making more threats than he can handle. If you win a pawn, trade everything off, make your pawn into a queen, and use the queen to mate.

In practice most tournament games end when someone drops a piece for nothing and resigns. Games that end in mate in the middle game are few and far between and are the ones that get in the books.

No not so! I love my centOS web server I love the fact that all I see of it is through a SSH shell, and I love configuring it via that shell. I adore the simplicity and power of something devoted to a dedicated purpose, unfettered by all that GUI rubbish soaking up memory and resources. It runs at lightning speed, compared to the Win 2008 production servers I have to manage that are rammed full of Gigabytes of memory, fastest Xeon quad cores - oh the horror of the Windows production server. I have dared to stare into the abyss and it stared back.

Now workstations? graphical environment - simply out of necessity - no not Linux, sorry, they still do not compare to Mac or Win =>Vista. That Linux is the superior OS/kernel underlying things, not in debate, the graphical environment sitting on top is still not quite up to scratch and for which I blame the Linux brigade for keeping alive the sense that there is something wrong about GUIs

I've been using Windows 7 for most of the year but this week have made the switch to working full time on my Macbook Pro. I was just having too much trouble with my Windows machine (blue screens, applications just hanging in the middle of working for between seconds and minutes) and I thought back about how much trouble I'd had with the Mac in the same time and the answer was '0'.

Funnily enough, the day I copied the hard drive onto a new, bigger internal hard disk and tried booting from it, the graphics card died and the whole logic board needed replacing. Luckily the guy I'd bought it from second hand had taken out an extended warranty on it. The cost of the part alone was more than what I paid for it!
