Grim and myself could not quite get together during the week. I think we will meet up this weekend for our week 2 game.

I am aware of your snow problems in NYC but didn't expect 19" would break your internet connections. At least here in Warsaw even 30" don't put it down. All the best to you and your internet connection.

Re: Live Tournament New pairings Week 2
A measly eight inches down here in the DC metro area, shut down my power (and therefore internet access) for a day. I feel for ya. :)

Re: Live Tournament New pairings Week 2
I was quite surprised myself. My cable TV came back in only one day but I couldnt get the internet to work for 2 so go figure. The cable and internet enter into the house on two separate co-axial cables so I suppose they work on a different system? I am assuming that the problems were due to the mass of snow storms to hit this area in a short amount of time. Outside there are snow mounds that go up to the top of the street signs and I've seen mounds in parking lots that must be 20ft high, so it is possible the weight of the ice and snow caused the disruption? Your guess is as good as mine. We have another storm on the way too...I'm so sick of snow now and I've had my complete full of winter.

Re: Live Tournament New pairings Week 3
I apologize it took so long to do the Week 3 pairings. I have a family situation at the moment that has required my attention for the past few days and it will continue to occupy the majority of my free time for the next several days so continued apologies if my presence is sparse.

Re: Live Tournament New pairings Week 3
Is it true that the official snack food of Poland is ice cubes?

Re: Live Tournament New pairings Week 3
Just keep in mind that even ice cubes are much more tasty than American hamburgers from McDonald's (and much better for your health if you are in heat)

Re: Live Tournament New pairings Week 3
I hate to admit it but I love Mcdonalds double cheeseburgers as well as their french fries.I'll grant you that the nutritional value is abysmal.But once in a while the salt, fat, beef and cheese is pretty enticing

Re: Live Tournament New pairings Week 3
Taste is always accompanied by smell, but when I smell the odour of fried fat at McDonalds I am close to hork. You should try Polish food then you forget McDonald's.

Cuch, what time zone are you in, and when are you available to play? I've got a 4-hour windows tomorrow (Sat) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Eastern.

Re: Live Tournament New pairings Week 3
Hi BrandonE,
I will be playing against Kastelka Sat February 12th 6PM UTC. It wasn't easy to agree time and date but we have managed although there is 11 hours difference in time between two of us. All the best to your family and you.
