In Sydney for the SIO
I am playing chess in Sydney this week. I think I’ve played the SIO (Sydney International Open) four of the five years it has run. I just lost my first round game to FM Junta Ikeda. I drew with him 5 years ago at Queenstown but he was about two years old then (I may exaggerate slightly) and there was no such luck today. Anyway, this is just a quick post from an internet cafe to acknowledge that my fifth and final foundation donor (Eric Ziegler, from Germany) has signed up. Thanks Eric! Now it’s just a shame I cannot update www.triplehappy.com remotely as well. For once I’ll be hoping I don’t get any donors in the next week, as they may feel they have been duped by the encouragement to become foundation donor that still exists on that site.
