Back on kyu track

A few weeks ago, I decided to start practicing go again.

It has been - what? - 3 years since I played it regularly? In my previous life (different home, different job), I knew a few people who played it, and whom I played against at work. There was even a local go-club which I could attend every week.

Now, since I moved to Dendermonde and started my job at Larian Studios, those people are too far away to regularly meet up with. And I've noticed it in my playing skills; I must have dropped 3 or 4 kyu in those last years.

But that's all past now. I've taken up playing again, albeit against GnuGo, the AI opponent. And in something of 2 weeks time, I can again beat it at an equal game (i.e. no handicap).
