Eighty Seven Percent at Chess Tactical Server

Burning Man, which starts tomorrow in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada...

Eighty-Seven Percent attained tonight. It has gotten to where these milestones at Chess Tactical Server, at the current 95 to 98% daily rate, are occuring so often that I sincerely am not even noticing them till after they happen, as distinct from before when I watched their emergence with 'baited breath'.

All I need do now is another 6,160 tries at 93.7662% to get to exactly a true 88.00% at 40,000. I have all this in a spreadsheet, recorded daily, as well as of course, with plans for 40,001 to 50,000 at 93.621% to attain 89.276% and 50,001 to 60,000 at 93.620% to attain a true 90.00% .

A rank there, of #112 among 2244 users, means that this is better than 95.009% of all active users. Only ten of the top 112 have ratings above mine, for 10,000 tries and up, that is to say, among regular users 87%, 1400+ elo AND more often than not, among those usually exceeding 20,000 or 30,000 tries. So few have done this.

Time for my nightly training run now... dk

PS: I've done my last 800 at 97.38% and right now, 94.00% feels like abysmal failure. Not kidding.

I posted the picture of us on the Harbor steps on my blog. Its not the best shot but given the lighting and flash avoidance, it is what it is.

Maaan, why do you guys have to live so far away? Wouldn't it be easier if you all just packed your things and came to Sweden? I'll buy you coffee for the trouble... ;)
It seems I'm the only one crazy enough to battle the circles in this elongated wasteland.

Still keeping up the hard work DK...good to see!

Just for the record, Burning Man is just north of my present location in the Black Rock Desert, Nevada. Clothing optional...
