    Given you game load, perhaps it is time to change your name.

    Any suggestions? Also if you can get my name changed I will do it!

    I only got around 200 games on the go. I use to have over 600... I cut way back!

    200 games is okay for me.

    Now, How do I go about talking Russ into doing that?

    Plus I would still want to keep my stats lousy as they are!

    1600 is lousy?

    If everyone will excuse me...I will go hang myself.
    If 1600 is lousy, it is time to say goodbye.

    Maybe I will enter that great "under 1400" tournament in hell.

    Very Busty?
    Perry Musty?
    Hairy Crusty?
    Scary Movie?
    Larry Dusty?
    Edmund Muskie?
    Rarely Trusty?

    ...or..., given your current game load:

    VeryReady.

    I have questions for the 100+ game-loaders:

    1: How much time do you spend thinking about and making all of your moves each day, on average?
    2: Do you leave notes to yourself in each game or, when you come to each game, do you evaluate the position afresh?
    3: Do you spend more time on games against good opponents than on games against bad opponents?
    4: Do you get checkmated or make stupid blunders because, rushing from game to game, you failed to see obvious threats?

    And, finally, the big question:

    Is it any fun playing that many games?

    I like Hairy Crusty.

    Good eatins!

    Retarded meaning slow? Yes, very true. Typical round takes five hours, longer on weekends.
