Or try Jim Beam, that will light you up.
I suppose it would be entirely appropriate to say:
"..perhaps watch Jim Carey -- he'll crack you up.."
I have to admit that the endless "GGs" in that post earlier DID crack me up! The poor guy on the receiving end of it was like "Dude? WTF? Fine! I heard you -- goooood GAME!!"
..only to be followed by --> "GG"
I have a cat named Gigi. ..... Thoughts?
[G]ood [I]nteresting [G]ame [I]nstinct
No, there is only one G in arrogance. On the other hand native american indians used to have a contest called the Arrow Dance. It however has no G's in it. There are plenty of words with a GG in them, for example mugger, nugget, plugged, bugged, logger, waggy, foggy...I could go on. The simple repetition of the seventh letter of the alphabet does not appear to be offensive on the whole, with the possible exception of an episode of South Park. I fail to see the point of the thread and understand I may just be slow as it extends to 76 fascinating pages already. Still, I am sure you will enlighten me and lift me from my igggnorance.
Thanks for playing! Other thoughts?
(Food for thought: I named my cat "Gigi" 12 years ago, Long before I'd even Heard of online chess, much Less the letters "gg" as an abbreviation for "good game." Was I unconsciously prescient? How prescient Was I? .....Discuss...)
Me too, well it's usually spelled Jiji, but then during Euro 2012 I spent a few weeks calling her Gigi Buffon...
Well it looks like we could not get rid of them richers.

Please, "go on!" Don't feel bad about being "slow." You're So close to understanding the point of the thread: It is, quite simply, to continue to "go on" .... and on .... (there, now you've got it!)
Motherinlaw --> That's one enthusiastic "GOOD GAME" a.k.a "GG" for you! If you collect enough GGs, they'll be good for $1 off of your next purchase of any board game at Wal Mart
Good GAME! Whooo!
$5 Pizza! Whooo!
I can't believe this gg forum has gone on this long

Graaaaa....ga stutter for gd-g--(aka as gg or great gag)
I think those 8 inch floppies were even before "Wall Street," (1987), those were like the days from Reagan getting shot and the Rubix cube.
The Rubix cube was 1970s
Reagan was shot in 1981
New computers had drives for eight-inch floppies through the mid-1990s, but 3.5 inch floppies were standard by 1990.
8" floppies were exceedingly rare, even as early as the 80s. Perhaps you're thinking of 5¼" floppies which were still common into the mid-90s?
Yes. Perhaps all those years of saying that something else was eight inches has caught up with me.
TornadoC, we had a bank of Apple IIe machines in graduate school, and I wrote a lot of papers on them. But the first machine I played chess against was an IBM-clone 80386 running Chessmaster 2100.
How would you feel if someone took the time to type: "Good game I enjoyed our game of chess" would it make a differance of how it was interpreted?
Yes, even if it was a crappy game. The extra effort and expression of personal pleasure is vastly different that the lazy gg after every game. If lazy players could type three letters (thx) instead of two, they could have deprived us of the two years entertainment this thread has brought. But, then, they would need look elsewhere for our recommendations of good Scotch.
Not sure of exact dates but 8" floppy were late 60's or very early 70's and used mostly on main frames. 5-1/4 were late 70's and 3.5 were mid 80's.
Dang im getting old.
When I bought my first computer, 1989, both the 3.5 and 5.25 were available, but for reasons now forgotten, I opted for two 5.25 drives on my box. Most computers over the next several years seemed to have one of each, and by the time I retired that old computer in the mid-1990s, I seemed like a dinosaur with my 5.25 floppies.Perhaps the 8" do correspond well with the Rubix Cube.
