A weblog like this was the intended object of a conditional pledge made on Christmas Eve, 2006, sent to the news hub-man of the chess world, with arguably its two most prominent bloggers as witnesses. It was subsequently notarized by my pastor, the Rev. Dr. Daniel E. Hoffman. The condition was declared in February 2011 not to be in effect by several authorities, including I believe the controlling authority, so that my unimpeded attention is here, and by assurance for a fairly long time. Meanwhile preparations for this are being attended to unhurriedly. A second pledge in the same communication is active. Supporting material for both pledges sent later was shown at upper left in the photo, while its “explanation and invitation” spelled out the intent more.
