    The audio quality is so poor it’s difficult to sit through.

      Sí, David. Es penoso el audio del vídeo. ¡Mejor que no lo cuelguen y se dediquen a investigar a los que hacen trampas con el reloj. Y hasta tengo pruebas.

      PS I made the golrnaa bars again last weekend and tried to cut the granulated sugar back a bit, and they were still tasty but way more crumbly than last time, so I think that might be key. I think I also used slightly less dried fruit the time they fell apart. Next time I’m going to try adding a beaten egg to hold them together a bit better, so I’ll let you know if that works.

    If we could had the written text it would be possible to follow.
    The sound is so poor that it is almost useless.

    Нововведение на сайте понравилось. Смотреть анализ партии в видеоролике интереснее и нагляднее, чем просто прочитать статью. Есть только одно пожелание – улучшить качество звука и продолжить серию видеороликов.

      gg is aslebutoly riight and so is calvin.Gelfand shows his justified inferiority complex about Carlsen regularly, and look for even more signs of it now.The Ivanchuk line is absurd. Their record is 6 2 in favor of Carlsen, and is even convincing in recent years.

    Joe, YES, it would have hleepd if there was a HiveMindCreator for DWR. When facing this problem, I didn’t consider writing one! I went for the fast solution, i.e. exposing a class to DWR which includes a reference to Hivemind’s registry, so there’s no real DI there, just dependency lookup. But now that you mention it, having a hivemind creator would simplify and beautify stuff.Are you planning on writing one?
