Perhaps "checked himself out of the asylum" instead of "abandoned ship?" :wink:
He's lucky.

The only way i can get out is have a heart attack. Then someone fills in for me. :-)

He is not there. He is on Lake Washington with his computer :-)

This is scary because it's true.

Perhaps there was something he didn't want to tell us... (apologies to any girls viewing) :)

Typical response but, expected. This I know, some of you that post such useless comments can live 10 life times over and still cannot contribute as much to the world of computer chess as Dan did in one year. Your contributions are useless and will soon fall on death ears. It’s sad that I even response to such a post. No matter if you believe or not we will all meet or maker one day. How sad it is we have so little respect for each other.

I used to enjoy Dann's posts, I appreciate the useful statistical, and other, work that he did, and I miss him.

My opinion is that he wouldn't mind some harmless humour in this thread.
