The geek has come out to play big time today.
Bought Annie a video camera (with free DVD player) for our wedding anniversary yesterday!!
Of course I'm the one who has been playing with it. Had to go buy a Memory Stick so I could get the still photo bit working, and the MPEG short video. Got it working but the quality is crap. I'll have to fiddle a bit.
Also installed a wireless network, at home, finally, so I'm tapping away in the lounge.
I'd better secure this network down in a few minutes!!
And finally, unbeknown to that punk Cameron,
I'm a closet chess player, but I haven't been out of the closet for
decades, so I'd better get some practise in before I put in the
Fascinating reading about Bobby Fischer again, having a look at the game Cameron linked to, and finding another game Fischer played. Amazing. He seems to be able to see over 10 moves ahead with several variations. I suspect that some players can see a theme in a position and use instinct, and others are calculating every option 5+ moves ahead.
Damn it, I'm getting addicted again. If I were on a Desert Island it would be a PC with a chess programme for me. If I had nothing left, and lost everything, going into deep depression, I'd go to Central Park, New York, and bum around, playing chess there!! That's how deep my chess cuts.
