Welcome to the Blogosphere Classplayer!

I wanted to announce a brand new blog in the chess world. It is called Chronicle of My Chess Improvement by Classplayer. I won't reveal his FICS handle, as I see he hasn't identified himself on his blog in that regard. So, I'll let him do that. Also, I'm not sure if he wants to become a Knight Errant or not, but if he does I have told him to contact Tempo Schlucker. Anyhoo, let's all welcome him to the world of chess blogging!

Thanks for linking me. Good luck to all. I'm not following de la maza's program specifically, more of a modified program based on what GM Joel Benjamin said is good and bad about my game. (my tactics stink) so I'm working on 1 hour a day of Reinfeld's 1001 Brilliant Sacrafices and Combinations.

I am trying to put together an U1800 team. Let me know if you are interested.

I appreciate the offer, Phorku, but I'm going to sit this tournament out. The endgame practice (when I've been able to find time lately) takes precedence right now. I'll get back into the swing after I finish my endgame study.

David, it's good to learn of another blogger and CTS user. If you've linked to my url, it should work. Just make sure that it says: www.celticdeath.blogspot.com

Do you mind if I add you to my sidebar? Are you planning on becoming a Knight Errant, or how should I classify your blog?

thank you celtic. yes, add me is much appreciated. i already consider myself a knight but, de facto, have not formally asked to be considered among them... and glad to see another CTS diehard here. wormwood, tempo, mouse, loomis, many are here. amazing to me so much brains from one site at another site. very special for me.

also, smart stuff always from bluedevil with a good human heart to boot!

im a very serious guy in my personal sphere, so i try to balance it with odd or even funny visual stuff here, and am highly trained in a visual field from infancy, so another way for me to combine my visual stuff, world view stuff, with computing and chess.

i hope that this day finds you well. im staring to refocus on OBP so less energy available for CTS but absolutely plan to continue assiduously. i resumed ctArt today after a weeks hiatus, too. the brain is not a constant.

what are you working on these days, if i may please ask? how? we all learn from each other or gather support for our solitary craft here.

warm regards from the pacific northwest where nights are still long, david
