25 February 2018 - MiVel Memorial Day


On the occasion of the fifth anniversary of the death of our beloved friend Milan this Sunday, being the positive person he always was, I would like to encourage you to share heartwarming true stories with him, or just a problem by him which is worth seeing or which you want to discuss.

As I will have to play a game on Sunday and probably be exhausted afterwards, I will already share that:
Coming from a country with a deeply corrupt and discouraging school system, one that did not even let me take a higher education by calling me officially retarded, Milan was the major person in my life to encourage me, to believe in me (together of course with Steven B. Dowd). So when I joined here, he had me as inofficial bug tester of the website. Today I have an active role in our international community as author of an article series on the world's biggest commercial chess website, in cooperation with the WFCC. Without Milan, without the great contacts made in this forum, it is doubtful that I would have grown as a person like this.

Too bad, no participation. Let us try again in one year or five.
