    In my latest Matrix Chess game against the computer I failed in an interesting way that actually involved winning the game. See what you think. Position after 15. Nb5. Black to move. FEN: rn1qk2r/pp4p1/3bb1P1/1N1p1p2/3Pp2p/5P1P/PPP1N1K1/R1BQ1R2 b kq – 0 15 I’m playing Black in this game, and I set Shredder’s strength to 2114 (somewhat lower than I usually do) because I was pissed off after three straight bad losses and wanted to win a game. One side effect of setting its strength lower is that it plays more goofy openings. This was a Grob Attack (1. g4), an opening…

    Let me go off-topic briefly for another update on Daisy, the puppy that my wife and I adopted from the animal shelter in April. First shocking news: She’s getting bigger! I mean, who would’ve thought, right? One day you bring home a spindly little four-pound fluff ball with wide eyes and geeky ears, and before you know it you’ve got an eight-pound rascal with a mind of her own, hanging out on street corners … Well, no, not really. But she definitely has a mind of her own. Fluff happens. Second shocking news: She’ll eat anything (almost). Likes: Dinner leftovers,…

    I was doing some random web-surfing today, when I ran into a jaw-dropper of a thread on Google Groups, from 2002. Wrote Larry Tamarkin (a master from New York) in rec.games.chess.politics: Having played some of the great young talents of the last 20 years, I can give some perspective on the strength of the players at the time they were 8-11. (…) Fabiano Caruana & Marc Tyler Arnold.  These kids play here at the Marshall a lot, and I’ve played them many times. I generally win just barely from them (approximately 60% – My FIDE rating is 2186). I believe these two kids are…

    23 Jul 2015 | 2:58 pm
    For those who haven’t been following, “Matrix chess” is my name for a training technique where I play a blitz (10-minute) game against the computer but I am allowed to take a time out at one point in the game for as long as I want. It gets its name from the Matrix movies, where Neo has the ability to slow down time in his battles against the computer enemies. The previous posts I wrote on Matrix chess were: Trump Cards (in Chess!)

    Today my 157th and last ChessLecture went online, and I am now officially “retired” from CL. I already explained my reasons for leaving in an earlier post, so let me just say a couple things about the last lecture. First, I want to apologize for the slightly less than perfect sound quality. I was recording with the microphone on my laptop instead of a headset (as I had done in the past), and I didn’t realize how limited the range of the laptop’s microphone was. There was a steep drop-off in volume when I moved out of range. It’s not a big deal, though, because 95…

  • Balancing shipments through multiple parties

    Tao
    21 Jul 2015 | 3:45 pm
    As many of you know, we’ve started using UPS as a shipping option for international shipments. Part of the reason for this is due to pricing – it’s actually cheaper (marginally) to ship to some countries with UPS with our discounted rates than with Canada Post. A side goal is to reduce our cost of shipping to the US to a more manageable level for large shipments.  While the Small Packets USA costs is extremely reasonable for shipping, it only works for packages up to 2kg.  That means that most of our US orders are for smaller products. Currently, we are on a tiered…
