Jesus, I shouldn't be allowed near a keyboard before I have my coffee.
Vincent, I apologize.  This isn't funny (although somehow, at the
time...) This is clearly uncalled for ad hominem crap and a product of a
mix of pre-coffee crankiness and a profound lack of sleep.  I love
chess.  I love go.  I suck at both of them, and they are very, very hard
problems and humans learn a lot from trying to solve them.

If I offended you (and I don't see how I could miss, sorry) I apologize.
If I offended Greg, Peter, or anyone else, I apologize again.

I think I'll go crawl back under a rock for a while with the rest of the
exoskeletal mindless creatures.
