Chess, meditation or madness?
I was once told that a good game of chess is quite meditative, and I have often found it to be so.
However, in playing chess on line I sometimes get frustrated because I am in the mood for a game, but there is nobody on. That's when I screw up and start a dozen or so games, join a few tournaments, challenge all my friends, get completely overwhelmed, and my rating goes into free fall.
So, in an attempt to get back to a more peaceful state, I am winding down all my games on the other site on which I play. I will let that membership run out and concentrate my efforts on this site.
So, if you notice me running up the total games numbers, slap me.
