It's ok, I never finished a game of chess before, either I raged quit, my opponent raged quit, or I got bored.

Hi, Michael.

Does the game occur in real time? I tried correspondence chess many years ago (by snail mail!!!) and by the time I received a reply, I'd lost all interest in the game. Couldn't actually remember the game.

Tull fan by any chance?

And they asked me in to dinner, to get the beauty of it hot—

Yeah I prefer to play live chess with a timer. There is a game type I am particularily fond of, you have 15 minutes to complete the game (per person) and you get an additional 10 seconds on your clock after each turn. So you shouldn't lose by running out of time, but you have to hurry up with it already or you just might.
