Drop in Ratings

Well, disaster (chess wise) struck a couple of days ago.  I started playing something like 14 - 15 games at once, and wasn't paying enough attention to each game :(  I lost some games where I should have won, where I had an early lead, and the net result was a drop in around 180 ratings points.  In the last couple of days, I've slowed down, consciously, and started taking notes (using the built-in note function) so that I wouldn't lose track of where I was.

 Of course, I am still going to lose a lot of games.  I'm not a chess expert, but I hope to slowly build my rating back up into upper 1400's.  And when I lose, I hope to make my opponent earn his win :)
