Stop! You're going to give me a fat head. I really try to make sensible posts,
but I still goof up! Attributing motives ("he planned to write more than just
one") is always a mistake, even if I can back this one up.... :(

And I do hope to see you at the next WCCC. Our programs seem so different; yours
is an excellent positional player aware of strange concepts such as square
control, while mine is all speed and no brains (yet).

Also, if we go to a WCCC, you will no longer be KarinsDad. :)
