Some changes on the blog

I've recently joined a blogchain network Steem, through a site called Steemit. It's a network built on a blockchain, like the Bitcoin currency. Steem rewards its users for posts by giving out its own cryptocurrency for highly voted content.

So... To make things easier for myself I have now connected the World is my Goban blog to Steem through Streemian (another Steem service) so that all my Go blog posts get automatically syndicated to my Steem(it) feed. Now isn't that fancy?

Good. Now that I've got the financial stuff handled, I might as well start blogging about Go again. I think before the weekend I'll have something up. So be seeing ya with another post then.

Just a test. My Twitch stream

Just a little something I shot a while back: photo of a goban I once saw being made.

You can click the picture and visit my Flickr album to see all my other photos. Not much more to report this time. I've been a bit busy with my kids having started their fall semester and all those other activities that go with it. I'll probably need to start planning for Miro's 5 year birthday parties too.

Oh, and I'm now established as 7 kyu EGF. Cool. It took a while, but I guess I can do better. Next step 6 kyu.

(Embedding images from Flickr is a pain, anyone know how to easily add them?)

Big day tomorrow.

Hi again.

I haven't been writing for a couple of days, because I've been trying to get over a summer flu or heyfever or something that's been clogging up my sinuses lately, and also trying to prepare myself for the tournament we are hosting tomorrow. It's going to be an early wake up so I'll be hitting the bed quite soon now. It wouldn't do to play tired, after all.

Just sayin' I'm so going to get beaten this time, being a mere 7 kyu or whatever, going up against some 1 to 3 dan players.

Wish me luck! :)

"For the Meijin, there is no such thing as Joseki."

So I watched this wonderful game tonight, between Takemiya Masaki 9p and Goto Shungo 9p.

I have very little time now before going to bed, but I just had to link to the video. The game was very exciting, and while I am dead tired, I just couldn't take my eyes off the screen. If you were wondering, Takemiya is the one who plays the "cosmic style". The video is subtitled in English, not sure if they work in embedded videos or not, but if not, you can always go directly to YouTube and watch it there.

I hope you liked it as much as I did. These guys really make the game look simple, and by listening the commentators you can learn a good deal of new tricks.

Good night, and have good games, as always!
