About Me

My photo
Adalbert is a forum for me, to post ephemera, photography, poetry, occasional travel notes, and various spontaneous motions. Cover photo: Parsonage where my great-grandfather spent his early years. Taken near Liegnitz, Silesia, ca. 1870. The "xothique" portion of the web address is a nod to Clark Ashton Smith's fictional continent of Zothique.

White Alice

My father (on the left) playing chess, 1958, Alaska, at the time of the White Alice Network project.


  1. Good picture. I play a lot of computer chess, really enjoy it. Do you play, Jonathan.

  2. Ray, I don't play chess myself. Learned the basic rules years ago but never went too far.
