This is truly a humbling day for me. One of the termites on the Egregious Chess Forum has compared me to Wagner!! Naturally, I am overwhelmed at this ringing (geddit?) endorsement, at having been ranked alongside a man whom many consider the supreme figure of the arts. “Ich bin überwältigt”, as they say in my local.

From such a height, there can only be one way to go, and that is down. I am therefore considering whether I should quit at the top, and never mention the Egregious place, or its termitic wildlife, ever again.

Will Giddins ever mention termites again? Wollen wir sehen!
