Monday, And We Come Out Fighting
Posted at 05:57 AM


Just Confirmed: Moving Leigh Out West. Concrete dates. Real excited about this undertaking.

- - - -

Had a good weekend. Got a lot done. Made some decisions. Made some plans. Made some sandwiches.

- - - -


01. Kicking the tar out of Kass in chess. DDC: 2 Kass:1. Slaughtered him in the third game. If you are reading this, tinkerbell, get out here and let’s get it going. You got me fired up.
02. Played a lot of guitar.
03. Listened to some records.
04. Play-by-play action from pretty Leigh back in Michigan.
05. Checked out a black-n-tan doxie out in Tigard. (Gary needs a little brother.)
06. Finalized our Vegas mission with all that tradeshow hub-bub.
07. Catching up with mom a bunch. Dad, you are next.
08. Feeling good and sleeping well.
09. Did the laundry: Clean sheets mean a lot, to a guy who sleep on the floor.
10. Making moves on a soon-to-be-announced new, awesome big deal.

If you’ve never been, Hamilton Foundry is an awesome pilgrimage. Definitely worth the trip if you’re cruising through Wisconsin.

Congrats on the Leigh move, from one of your lurkers in favor of true love. Your sandwich comment brought this to mind. Maybe Gary would like it too:

Hey nice site you have. Anyways I just thought I’d chat about some new chess software I found lately. Its called Chess Analysis Pro 7000. Its very good in analyzing your chess games for blunders. It also track’s your chess ratings. I liked the little book that came with it too. Yes I’d recommend this item. Kasparov always analyzed his own games.

Hey Nice Site. Anyways just thought ide give a few chess tips. 1. Choose an opening thats solid. One that offers opportunity for you. 2. Aim for a mid game position that is better for you. One where you can exploit the best of your talent. 3. If possible aim for a continuation to your attacks. This keeps the pressure on your opponent. I used this tip successfully my self for year.and still use them.
