I personally haven't played much chess in about 35+ years. During high school years I was pretty active in a local club, but then, I am afraid, most stuff was forgotten up until around mid 2009. For those of you who are interested in knowing some stuff about your game opponent: I am managing a financial consulting firm in Norway. When I am not working, I am listening to rock music (and playing my guitar occationally), restoring old American muscle cars (finished with my '69 conv. Mustang 351W-427 GT; currently restoring a prime '71 Charger 440 R/T; let me know if you have a '67-69 Camaro conv. RS/SS for sale ...), and working on my 2. Dan black belt in Tae Kwon Do with an objective of reaching that level in 2012. For some crazy reason I started to study the Greek language (!!) a couple of years ago (yes, it has something to do with a long term objective of mine and a house on Crete).
My favorite past time activities are music, chess, cars, and cooking (not necessarily in that order).
