Yesterday I cycled to Over with one coworker to meet up with another to drink beer, play Go and ended up playing with an Eye Toy (which for the uninitiated is a camera that plugs into a Sony PS2, sits on top of the TV and has some games that you play by maniacally waving your arms around to interact with things on screen; games are things like "Kung-Fu", plate spinning, whack-a-mole alike with bunny-girls and evil rats). Good fun stuff.

I have a feeling that one of the coworkers that I've recently introduced to Go will get a lot better than me very quickly. He seems to have a talent for reading tactical fights that I lack.

It's the same sort of habit of making blindingly stupid tactical errors that one a major reason I never got anywhere with chess. I'm not sure what to do about it, maybe just keep practising at Go problems. At least I'm playing again reasonably frequently, after a several month lapse.
