My youth transpired prior to the advent of inexpensive computer technology but I did learn to play and love the lore of chess - though I was never able to become a master level player. I still regularly log in to chessgames.com just for the pleasure of seeing the achievements of Morphy, Steinitz, Lasker, Rubinstein, Pillsbury, Tarrasch, Capablanca, Alekhine and many others of the past as well as to keep up with the evolving chess of the present day. Theoretically a perfectly played game of chess should always end in a draw. The interest is in the inherent imperfection of both man and machine and the struggle to identify and correct these imperfections.
Have had a better than 40 year career as a classical symphonic bassist, can play keyboards well enough to serve as a church pianist for a couple of years, have over 20 completed compositions and numerous arrangements to my credit
