Work: a handful of projects are coming through. Range from somewhat interesting to somewhat workful. Huh, just had a productive meeting to discuss ideas.
Chess: I'm still sucking. This will, of course, probably last a year. Actually, the rest of my life, as anybody below candidate master level sucks, by definition, and I don't know whether I'll ever make it up to candidate master level.
Great, I have the algorithm in mind, I just need to figure out how to do it with the existing technology (shoelaces, duct tape, paper clips).
Eh, I've made a little progress on my homework since last week's delay of class due to weather. Whatever.
Played a little chess at lunch, low on time, agreed to a draw after time was up, I opened up the a-file and put my rook on his 7th rather uncomfortably, but he owned the e-file and had uncomfortable pressure on my d5 pawn and the e5 square. I missed an opportunity to win two pawns and a rook for a knight and a bishop with rough tactics possibly allowing me to get a piece back (and my two pawns were passed), he had an unclear way to weasel out and we were both out of time so we agreed to a draw. Or something like that. Actually, I might've been able to win the exchange and two pawns or something. I forget the exact circumstances. There were some tactics flying around.
