    Please add unto this, or describe which one fits you best...

    Have you ever....

    -seen someone quit at the very beginning just because they lost one pawn (or piece)?

    -lost the overall match because you didn't kill that stupid pawn?

    - won because you had good pawn structure

    -used pawns to get most of the kills, even the checkmate?

    -trapped your opponent in a family fork? (rooks, king, queen)

    -felt your opponent somehow was knowing your every move?

    -played like YOU knew your opponents every move?

    -talked on the chat box during a game and lost because of it?

    -used your chat box to annoy or distract your opponent?

    -defeated someone extremely higher rated and wondered how they got that rating?

    -felt like you just survived the most hectic offense from your opponent after moving alll pieces back to protect the king, and then they blundered, winning you the match?

    -made your opponent become defensive, and then after all that attacking power, you lost? (lol)

    -looked at your live chess recently played list, and all you saw was "lost, lost, lost..." (lol)

    -looked at your live chess recently played list, and all you saw was "draw, draw, draw..."?

    -won 10 or more games in a row, and then disappointingly lost back all the same number? (lol)

    -created an amazing checkmate at the bUZZER-- when you had nearly nothing left?

    -played the whole match wonderfully to the very death, and then lost because of one itsy bitsy error?

    -played someone who knew they lost and so they left you hanging for the rest of the match hoping you would close the browser? (lol)

    - been begged by your opponent to let them win?

    -begged your opponent to let YOU win?

    -seen your rating drop from above 1500 to below 1000 all because you were frustrated the whole time? (lol)

    -made your eyes go red because you stayed up all night playing live-chess? (lol)

    -argued with your opponent on the chat box, and finally had to agree to a draw?

    -felt your opponent was somehow cheating??

    -have you ever cheated? (sad)

    -gotten in trouble by parents, employers, or friends, because you should have been doing something more important than playing chess? (lol)

    ..

    well that's what I got for now, please discuss and comment haha!! peace!!

    As to the making the opponent feel like I knew every move, I once, after a stint studying openings, conditional moved(is that a phrase?) my opponent for about 12 moves for each side. It was actually quite funny to log on and see every one of the moves I predicted come true.

    Absolutely not, pieces in chess are captured, not killed. If they were killed I would probably not play.

    YES:

    - won because you had good pawn structure

    -trapped your opponent in a family fork? (rooks, king, queen)

    -felt your opponent somehow was knowing your every move?

    -played someone who knew they lost and so they left you hanging for the rest of the match hoping you would close the browser? (lol)

    -been begged by your opponent to let them win?

     

    YES, but slightly modified:

    -felt like you just survived the most hectic offense from your opponent after moving alll pieces back to protect the king, winning you the match when the attack ran out and the material sacrifices they made cost them the game?

    -played the whole match wonderfully to the end, and then lost because of one horribly obvious oversight?

    -gotten in financial trouble, because you should have been doing something more important than playing chess? (lol)

    That's pretty sweet. I think there was a game in the Game Showcase a few months ago of somebody who conditional-moved his way from move one until checkmate, due to some smothered mate trap. It was impressive as hell.

    I'm pretty sure I've done half of those things. Also, I frequently use software to fix hardware errors. Sadly, I cannot do the inverse.

    The only way you can use hardware to solve software errors is by using functional hardware so you know the software is the problem. I don't really know how you could then "use" the hardware to solve the software bugs.

    Yes! I was playing against this guy a very long time ago. When he lost his rook, he just quit!
