Whats with all the asterisks? Asterisks as a general rule get me concerned!

Not as much as obelisks.

A copy and paste lead to their appearence from the bowels of the software. I will remove them since they are giving you an anxiety attack.

Thanks Matthew - I now feel much better, and my anxiety has been shifted onto other concerns.

You playing Barry? It'd be good to see you there.

I'm afraid not. I'm not a big fan of 1 hour games let alone 30 minutes. ;)

But I'm getting plenty of non-chess stuff in: Time with the family, Dad's 71st Birthday, mow the grass, tennis and other Jammo like activities. :D

Good luck though. Looks like a good tournament with good prizemoney. I hope you get some of it.

Well, that other stuff is pretty important, so it's good that you have your priorities in order. I made the snap decision to play this weekend when I discovered that I had no commitments this weekend, and if at home, would spend my time pointlessly posting BB messages.

Indeed the prize money sounds impressive, and it would be a nice bonus to win some of it. But after all is said and done, I'm there for the chess, for the competition and the commeraderie. Anyway, enough with the cliches, I best be continuing to get busy doing the nothing I was doing before writing this post.

More info later; like Machiavelli was all but smashed by our unrated 11 year-old junior Johnathan Zhu, who blundered the win ;)

Hehe, it's all too true :)

By the way Matthew, do you ever get a chance to watch "Compass" on the ABC? It's on at the moment, and dealing with my pet topic of epistemology and its relationship to faith.
