      Well I'm quite probably wrong on those. I usually am after all :-) But I'm pretty sure there's more pressing cancer-giving stuff to tackle before taking care of speed glue :-)

      Was the speedglue that unhealthy in the first place? Can't remember any kid from my era falling sick. I think that would have kind of made the headlines.

      Not to sound like a jerk but I really don't know about that.
      I stopped playing table tennis around 18 years ago, picked it up again september '18.
      I can tell you that the rallies are much longer...

      As a Frenchman with an « I » in his name myself, working for a British company and thus speaking and hearing English most of the time, I can tell you it still feels very unnatural to hear my name...

      Well, back to my (admittedly very specific) example, even when I started to only send the ball when at the table (which I agree is good practice anyway) it was still not necessarily easy to to be in...

      That as well yes. But I think in any case it's moot, see my edit (and I should really have answered my own comment instead of editing it)

      Interestingly, there's also this little gem that might relate to the story I was telling:



      In my case, the other player being invalid, could the umpire decide to relax the requirement that the...

      I was suspicious of such a central point being up for interpretation and as it turns out, it's not:



      By this definition, catching the ball with the hand not holding the racket is definitely not...

      I'm not sure that works that well in a competition context where people need every inch of edge they can get but I see your point :-)

      While I do agree with you, it doesn't entirely solve the issue because roughly half the time they will have the ball on their side already :-) (although you could argue that in those cases you have...

      I'm extra annoying with people that don't even check if the receiver is ready and consider that they do it on purpose. Which is why if I notice that I will actively look outside for a couple second...

      Interestingly enough I have the exact same background.
      Provincial / regional player back in the 90s, stopped for 18 years and came back for a revenge in sep 18. Back then we were indeed mostly...

      Interestingly I’ll benin Hackney, London for some time next month as well for a company retreat. Maybe I’ll try and escape for an evening :)

      Looks a lot like a misconfigured ssl certificate indeed. Specifically the wrong private key installed on the server. Might be a MiM attack as well of course, so better safe than sorry.

      Heh!
      I feel obliged to say this is really from memory as I couldn't actually access my files from back then and that I wasn't 18 at the time, so clearly not the adult leagues.

      I was a good...

      Once again absolutely no idea how it compares with international ranking, but if memory serves well I was 50 at the time.
      Ranking was from 5 to 5 starting with 70, then 65 and so on.

      Being quite invested in board sports as well (snowboarding, skiing, kiteboarding, wakeboarding) I can attest that it's the very same in those as well :-)

      Yeah, they've been able to get my file from 18 years ago, apply a standard yearly decrease and came up with 650 points, so rank 6. I have absolutely no idea how that compares to international ranking...

      I highly recommend it as well. I‘m 34 and definitely chose my club because it offered coaching for adults as well as kids so I see no reason why you wouldn’t find willing players.
