Chess & Time!

Now, what does time mean in Chess? Time is not limited to the minutes on a chess clock. Generally, it refers to this chessic thumb rule: Try to gain time, and try to avoid losing it. Scenarios in which you gain time: If you make your opponent move a piece to a poor square, or back to where it came from, without making any concessions yourself, then you gain time. If you force your opponent to stop his plans and start responding to yours, you gain time.

When do you say you are ahead of time? If your pieces are better developed than your opponent’s, you are probably ahead in time.
If you have freedom and can do whatever you want, you most likely have the edge in time. But of you must wait to see what your opponent is going to do before doing what you’d like to, then cant do what you’d like anyway, you’re probably behind in time.

You also have a time advantage of you can attack and your opponent must defend. Having such superiority that is being able to att…

Manipulating ?

Well well well...Here's is somebody who is trying to manipulate me.
Why? : Absolutely have no clue!
How is he doing that: He talks as if he knows me!
How do I conclude he is trying to manipulate me? : If at all he knew me he should have known 2 things about me that I hate liars and flirts.
His very first line contradicts.

I really want to appreciate this guy's Honesty and Will to return my flash drive!

I lost my flash drive 3-4 days ago in office. I only realized it after 2 days. Nobody has dedicated comps here...so more than one person can share the computer.

This guy had left a sheet of paper with his name and number on it. I ignored it thinking it was the similar kind of paper a guy had left few months back that had his name and number to have friendship with me.

Next day I had left a note saying whoever noticed flash drive on this comp.. Please return it to either Rathna … (number) or S…. (Number…. my friend). I had a very important material regarding my GMAT on this and I just couldn’t afford to loose it!

That guy called up S…. also sent a message saying that flash drive was on top of the comp and he was seeing it since 3 days! (Ohh....I am such a fool…how could I not notice it!!?) And that he didn’t leave the message that flash drive is on the comp but left only number thinking somebody else woul…
