  1. Hey, i was having trouble with this as well but i found the solution here

  2. Not sure how that thread is related to my issue?

  3. Is this really considered stealing? I think the basic observation that you don't have to engage negatively with everything on Twitter and can ignore it instead has been made ad nauseam. I've seen a ton of versions of this joke on Twitter!

  4. The question is, and has been for some time, whether the fact that Hans cheated in Chess.com online when he was 16/17 a reason to ban him or otherwise kill his OTB career.

  5. Lying/cheating is bad, but doing so to get money is basically fraud/stealing and in many cases a literal crime.

  6. There’s a clear bias in presenting him as a cheater, which is why you see these analysis being posted. For the most part they look fine, until you see they’re not comparing apples to apples, and cherry-picking either data or presentation.

  7. But the infuriating thing is that unlike the engine correlation posts this guy seems to have all the data you'd need to at least attempt to make an apples to apples comparison and show the entire distribution of players.

  8. But the pool of players who've made it to the 2600s is not 5 or 20, right? I definitely agree Hans is most comparable with his fellow contemporary prodigies, but If we're making a statistical claim about centipawn loss there's no reason to avoid the question of how everyone else who got to the 2600s is doing by that metric.

  9. Both are 2-move combos. Hard to see, sure, but are the discovered attacks and the mate on g2 that suspicious? Not saying I would spot them, that's for sure, but I think it was more on Hiraku for putting his queen unprotected and susceptible to a discovery.

  10. Cheating in online events is bad, but I really question whether a 10-year punishment OTB for cheating in online blitz games is in any way reasonable. His cheating is a big deal, and cheating in TTs much more so. I don't know what the consequence for that should be, but 10 years OTB for that really sounds like too much...

  11. Agreed. The idiots that thought Magnus was overreacting are... Idiots

  12. While I don't think Magnus is overreacting, he's gone about this in a very poor way. I know everyone is converging on "cheating in Chess is a big deal", as they should. However, Magnus' actions don't eally make as big a deal about cheating in Chess as they do about the possibility Hans beat him by cheating in St. Louis, which are not quite the same.

  13. Do you think the wall street journal would be involved if Magnus didn't make such a public spectacle? Serious question. I think it was maybe over the top, but it definitely got the world's attention. I've seen BBC articles, in Canadian news outlets, even my wifes dad has been talking to me about it, and he doesn't even really play lol. Definitely stoked the fires.

  14. I don't really take issue with making a big fuzz about it. But what is the goal? Magnus made it seem like he'd be satisfied with killing Hans' OTB career because of the past cheating online, and the inciting incident is that Magnus lost that game in St. Louis.

  15. Can't wait for someone to pretend they read all 72 pages in a comment posted 5 minutes after the report went up

  16. I just read it; it's not actually a 72-pager, but 20 pages with an appendix that's mostly figures.

  17. Want to preface this by saying Hans' cheating in multiple prize events, and lying about it, is deeply damning. That said, I want to comment on a few things:

  18. Legit curious: How did you figure he only computed the coefficients using 3-4 data points? I also checked for this and actually came to the opposite conclusion (that he must have used the underlying distribution of data points; otherwise the numbers he reports don't seem to, at least to me, line up with the graph).

  19. I also teach data analysis at a university and I'm published in statistical journals. I agree with most of what you said, but would like to add some caveats.

  20. Wow. No proof, but he didn't sugarcoat anything

  21. The irony for this article to be on a website with an add after every paragraph and a rolling set of video adds on the lower right corner I cannot close.

  22. As opposed to Google search results which are 100% accurate?

  23. People legit think potatoes are Irish.

  24. I agree with this mostly, but if you deliberately get drunk then you're choosing to alter your brain chemistry, and thus whomever you become is someone you've chosen to be and thus part of who you are.

  25. It’s not “overdoing it” - it’s how Tolkien wrote out elvish to be pronounced in Appendix F of LOTR.

  26. That is very interesting. I tried looking it up but didn't find this in Appendix F. Could you possibly point me to the text? Though I understand if it's not feasible.

  27. Sorry, Appendix E - “Writing and Spelling”, “PRONUNCIATION OF WORDS AND NAMES”.

  28. I think he realized in the middle of the interview that his analysis was wrong, but he just didn’t want to admit it.

  29. This is my pet theory as well. Once Alireza didn't take, he probably put it out of his mind until the interview, where his ego prevented him from admitting it was much more complicated than he had thought.

  30. While I get Myke's wariness, his definition of a podcast sounded so arbitrary. "If it's in these private platforms then it's a podcast, and if it's in other private platforms then it's not." Doesn't seem like a good definition, really.

  31. What I was trying to get across is that something I love about podcasting is that consumers can choose where they want to listen. It doesn’t feel right to me when a show is locked to a specific service.

  32. I really agree with that sentiment, which is why tying the idea of podcasts to Apple or Spotify in any way seemed odd, is mainly what I was commenting on. In particular since Spotify has already been making some moves towards exclusive content, is my understanding.

  33. Yea. It's like she is claiming she didn't even Google the name once before deciding to use it.

  34. If you Google the name in 2013, when her first book came out, it probably wasn't obvious that there was a Robert Galbraith who was a bigot (e.g. the Wikipedia page from back then doesn't mention it; the references to gay conversion therapy first appeared in 2016).

  35. Especially if a hat is required like in a lot of fast food, it is very easy to generate and retain heat.

  36. Restaurants and food was easier to understand for me than retail and offices. My initial thought was that even generating heat from activity, such low temps might feel uncomfortable for large portions of the day (after walking around in the sun all day, whenever I'd enter a store, after the initial bout if freshness I'd quickly start to feel way too cold, which is what prompted me to ask this).
