WikiPedia wrote:Tenuki (手抜き?) is a Japanese go term, commonly used in the West. It describes the idea of ignoring an opponent's move. More precisely, it refers to a play breaking off a local sequence, in order to play in some other part of the board. This can be entirely orthodox; as applied, tenuki may have the implication of a kind of gambit, in which some local loss in the future is accepted in order to make a transition into a more favourable overall development.

Careful, Walter, or Chip might ban you for using foul language.

But I definitely know what you mean. No sense of humor at all, that one.

:roll:


*snort*

This all just tickles me to no end. :lol:


HAH...the joke is on him...I pyrated his account and his Mod functions...
I will ban the foool!!! :idea:

Shincha Hatsumi, this is soooo different from last year's it is hard to believe it is the "same sencha."

I tried it a little more fukamushi style brewing today and sorta failed. I will go back to yesterday's successful attempt. Cool, long brew with less leaf. That was really good.

Brewing this is like trying to break into a bank vault, pretty hard to do, yet as yesterday showed me, there is an awaiting treasure within! :!:

My username dates back to my college email which was my first email account. To make it easy to figure out others email everybody got the first two letters of their first name and their last name as their email address which I've stuck to with a few blog exceptions for all of my logins ever since. So being named "John Grebe" my main login has been "jogrebe" to keep things simple.

My afternoon tea ia a nice Korean oolong. It's pretty hard to find Korean tea that is not ginseng, if you have ever looked. So I was surprised to find this one and even more surprised how good it actually is. Very dark roasted with pieces of woody stems included, I didn't choose to inspect it any closer than that.

The brew is clear and vibrant, the color a deep amber. It is sweetly honeyed and smooth with low astringency. Nice after taste that lingers, overall it's a very nice oolong.

Nickname! I am a pretentiously name "3rd." My given name is Walter...only one person on the planet can call me that. My parents had to call me something besides my father's name, and I think even they had probems calling a cute baby Walter. Fortunately for me, they did not start calling me by my middle name, Marsby, or I would surely need therapy.

So, I was a Chip off the old block. I use this on other forums as well when it is available.


But suddenly - your ID block says that you're going by Walter Marsby!

Are you now Walter "permanently" ... or are you Walter-for-the-day?

Or should we still call you Chip?

Or Chipwalter?

Another gorgeous photo from Salsero. Thanks!

By the way - those are definitely the manliest roses I've ever seen. And the saucer? Muy macho.

Chip had been...assimilated. the name Walter Marsby was created as a name you could relate to...I am really 455 of 1,423.

Sakura Sencha despite the long fading of the cherry blossoms...this tea has not faded.

I don't think borg designations go that high. Like 6 of 12 or 7 of 9. Probably something to do with subdivisions.

So which way did you sort the member list to get that you're #455 :?:
