That's like writing:
That's the Old-Skool chess move notation. The modern notation is easier for newbies, and really while not at in any way a newbie as I've been playing chess since the early seventies, I am as yet definitely clueless about kind of game that most people know as chess.
The modern notation for the above move would be:
Or something like that. In any case it uses much simpler to visualize integral grid coordinates.
Yet for reasons I find hard to even undertand myself, let alone explain to others, I find the traditional form of chess notation far more preferable, despite that even I myself find it far more difficult to keep track of which piece is which - the King's Pawn v. the Queen's Rook's Pawn, say, then when using the modern grid notation.
It cannot possibly be because I learned the traditional, I dont know the correct term but let's call it Relational Notation, when I was but a boy, as I was totally flummoxed by that notation whenever I myself ever tried to study those openings I go on about at such length.
What's your take? Do you yourself know why you prefer one, the other, dislike both or are equally cool with both?
Now mumble, I'm completely cool with not just idle chatter during my games with others, but any manner of Kibbutzing as well. Despite my enthusiasm for rhetorical chess, it is among the most mentally taxing activities of all for me. Thus idle chatter or even Kibbutzing is a very good way to relax until the time comes to consider my opponents next play.
But mumble, you know very well, that I know very well, that you are among Kuro5hin's most worthy opponents of all.
Please to be considering MichaelCrotchford's opening move as White, my own responding opening move as Black, then as I continue my game with MichaelCrotchford, I'll take you on as well, but you'll have to satisfy yourself with our two openings as you commence your own take on White by commencing your game with me from your own second move.
mumble, you're a dear friend to me, you know you are. That script you wrote that experimentally determines all of our Cirdian Rhythms is not only a valuable contribution to the Scientific, Mental Health and Mental Health Communities, but to me personally as well, because I can take my own posting cycle graph as well as those of a few of our colleagues, then show it to those of my own doctors who not only refuse my polite request to look up the literature on Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome, but consider me delusional for even believing that an Endocrine Condition whose basic mechanism won its discover, even exists.
mumble, my friend, don't fail me now.
I won't demand or make it so blunt as I quite commonly do here in the ghetto.
You need not comply with what is not a demand, but a polite request between two friends.
Please take White, that you and I might while away many an evening - or otherwise, in my own case - over a game of Rhetorical Chess.
