    Well, what is it?

    My rents insist on getting me a birthday present every year no matter how much financial trouble they are in or how old I get. They missed it this year so they want to give me a late present and I have given up protesting against them so to teach them a lesson I am gonna request something I want that is not TOO expensive but reasonably expensive.

    The list:

    1.Latest version of CT-Art
    2.Triple weighted wooden chess set (staunton)
    3.Some sort of chess book. (probably a tactics book but I really want the Soltis' book on the pawn structure.. but I forgot the name of it.)

    CT ART 3.0 is still the standard, there are no updates as far as I am concerned;

    Ask and get the program asap and after coupla weeks start moanin coz you lack of a decent set and you cannot really enjoy the royal game which you lov so much oh what would you do you are desperate you wanna jump at Niagara falls you cannot even fall in lov you cannot sleep at night, you know the drill

    Just my opinion, but I'd go for the book. You won't play any better on a pretty wooden set, any more than having a bunch of pretty art around.

    What a foxy spirit; are you a sturdy Souriquois or an Ojibiways warrior? Or you do come from a southern tribe?

    If you're asking me then the answer is that I'm a Blackfoot. If you're asking yourself then I have no clue

    Oh!
    I am asking you; are you Piegan, Siksika or Blood? From Alberta or Montana?

    Have you stole a horse and killed a Dakota, Lakota, Nakota, Shoshone, Flathead, Kootenai or a Blue Coat, or "tomtom232" is your derogatory name?
