Playchess.com on your cellphone!
This is the coolest thing ever made.
Everything you need to know about it can be found here http://www.fritzmobile.com/
I thought Yahoo Chess on your cellphone was the coolest thing ever made until for some reason I couldn't get an opponent anymore. It was like I was living in a virtual ghost town. Not only is this app free, it's completely reliable and I never have to wait more than 10 sec to get a game! If you have a playchess.com account and a cellphone you definitely should check this out.
***RIDICULOUSLY OVERZEALOUS GOAL UPDATE***
Well as most of you probably predicted, I'm going to fail miserably in my goal of completing the circles by the end of july. Needless to say I had a lot of other things in my life get in the way. You know how you wash a car and then it rains? Well this was more like a hurricane..
So now I'm under the microscope at work, and I need a way to continue my circles training without having to hide a laptop. The solution?
A Pocket PC!
This way I'll be able to do everything I need to do. I can play games on my phone, analyze them with pocket fritz, and do my circles training with pocket chess tactics for beginners! Best of all I got one with wifi access so I can connect to the internet for free!
I bought it used though, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that when it arrives it works like it's supposed to..
Last order of business. If you have CTB or any other Convekta product open it up right now. Right click on the board and choose the option enlarge board. Keep on enlarging the board until it's at its maximum setting.
Now take a look at the white knight...
Did they give the knight a little stubbly mustache?
Is that what that is?!
Or did they give him freckles and/or beauty marks?
I think the programmers over at Convekta have a little too much time on their hands...
