And so it begins...

After lurking in the shadows for months, after having acuired several books and after having made some comments and even, I might say, small contributions to the chess blogosphere, having decided that, at least for this summer, I'm going to try to study chess on a more regular schedule, I thought it was a nice idea to track my progress, ideas and challenges.

I want to write about the plan that will make me a force to be reckoned with, the books and other materials that I have and use and those I would like to have or use at a certain moment in time. And, if there are any, the games I've played.

The fact that I'm now unable to get my rating at the Chess Tactics Server below 1100 and that at one moment in time Blue Devil Knight had a rating there that wasn't much higher gives me the feeling that all is not lost. My name on CTS, is mentat, it's the same at Chess Tempo, but I haven't been as active on the latter compared to CTS.

That's all for today folks.

P.S. I'm not sure yet if I'll stay here or start at wordpress with their nice tabs.

Welcome friend. I have been terribly inactive lately, but thanks to linking to my blog. I will start hangin' here at yours more often.

I don't know much, but what I do know you're welcome to. I also have big shoulders that you can use to cry on when the game makes you want to do that...
