I learned chess when I was six but didn't really have the opportunity to play until Junior High School. I joined the Navy and didn't seriously start playing again until I moved to New Mexico last year. A friend at work (thx Joey Troy!) talked me into joining the NMCO (New Mexico Chess Organization). I really had a lot of fun at the Frontier Restaurant on Central Ave every Wednesday. I recently moved back to my home town of Eugene, Oregon and was going through some heavy chess withdrawals when I found chess.com! I travel a lot for work and enjoy being able to play chess.

After maintaining a pretty steady presence on chess.com for the last six months I had to resign all my 48 in-progress games. Work took me to Gorlitz, Germany and my apartment is not able to get a broadband connection so I purchased a mobile USB modem. Damn! I can log into the site but can't see any of my games. Basically, chess.com uses javascript to display the game and allow moves but since the USB modem uses data compression, I can't see the board. Had to resign or use 30 days vacation then lose on time. :(

I hope chess.com is able to fix this problem in the future. Until then ... be cool!
