With that start of that blog and the accompanying forum, I've decided to change course regarding this blog. sdo1.blogspot.com will become more of a personal blog for me to explore other topics in addition to my experiences in correspondence chess. My interests run the gamut including chess, football, politics, history, religion, SciFi, and on and on... I'll most likely move the politics related to correspondence chess to the ChessUSA blog.
I've put up a new graphics template (from FinalSense) and will be tinkering with it for a while... Most likely forever.
