Mass of losses

I am sincerely sorry to everyone who has in some way been let down by my long absence:

My opponents who probably expected to play a more or less interesting game with me, and most of all of course for my various team mates who have to cope with a 0-2 from my side now. Blokes, I'm really really sorry.

 

What happened? As some of you folks know already, we moved to a rather rural environment, and having promised me a full size DSL on my timely application, the german telecom now has found out they can't  provide any internet connection at all. I got myself an UMTS stick for my laptop which doesn't even transfer enough data to open a website or check my emails, and of course there is no internet café in this *** place.

I'm writing this from an office I don't normally have access to, and won't have regularly, so chances are it will be some time until you will read from me again. My apologies for this mess!

    but there are different types of "masters" and players. Some of them stick to opening theory because of what books say, others work the game out from scratch. Others get lucky and some depend on clever combinations. I'm sure there are masters who never give gambits a second thought, or their refutations. But I started out as a hardcore gambit player so I have a pretty good idea where alot of them are coming from :P

    Bummer Torben. We had an interesting game going too...

    Ahhh well...

    Enjoy the rural environment, regardless of the lack of internet.

    Have you looked into a satellite or a radio-frequency internet service?
