Its been a while, I suppose the forum needs some trolling
Yes, I support the library. Yes I have a land line. My house is too small for the encyclopedia set, but one day if I come into some cash, I'll get the full on OED set, so I can look archaic english words whilst reading poetry.
Point you make is a good one - play more chess. You get better, as long as you are really doing the work, not moving on auto-pilot, which lord knows I do a lot.
- if stuck at work at a computer, and you can't just move on RHP (get someone in the same time zone with the same problem and you can play all day!), I guess I can see some benefit to online study. I also have spent thousands of hours on chessgames.com just looking at all the games of my favorite players and trying to guess the next move, or playing quickly through all the games in a certain opening etc.
