  TheFocus: Gout is really tiring. Had to go downtown. A 30 minute trip took me an hour and a half.

I hate gout. Good thing I work from home.

  playground player: <TheFocus> Hasn't allopurinol worked for you? I had gout many years ago. Colchisine made it go away and allorpurinol kept it from coming back.

  TheFocus: I stopped taking Allypurinol altogether becaus it did not work for me.

Colchicine is great!!

  TheFocus: I asked my son: "Where are you going?"

"My aunt's house."

"Why are you going so early in the week?"

"Dad, it's Friday. If you didn't work around the clock, you would know what day it is."

"WTHeck! Friday already?!"

A writer's work is never done, and often overlooks "days of the week."

Jun-05-17  User not found: What project are you working on at the moment, mate? I told you that if you finish this Fischer book I can advertise it for you for nothing, I just don't think boxing, gangster info and hip-hop channel viewers would be too interested. I could do it via a Beatles channel which only has 2k subs but I do think kingscrusher has the best outlet for a chess book... I'm sure he would if you asked nicely, he must make as much as me though one channel although it's a long time since I checked his view count, subs, and what kinda advertising he's using (and how often. Hard to put ads in the middle of a game!).. He's chess mad, if you've got a new book published on Bobby Fischer I think at the very least he'll put a link to buy it in the description of his videos. You gotta plan ahead mate.. I read ages ago that the easiest thing about writing a successful book is writing the book itself!?

  TheFocus: <UNF> I will message you privately about my ongoing work.

I guess you know that I am writing fulltime now. I should have a couple of books ready for the printer soon.

I put in over twelve hours a day at the computer. Usually more than that.

Technical every day is 24 plus 0.0009297 seconds.

That's the popular theory, I agree.

But, I don't just follow the fashion trends.

  TheFocus: Well, I had a bad day yesterday and only put in seven hours of research.

Today is good, though. Already did seven hours at the computer.

Stopping for lunch, then back to work.

Losing track of what day of the week it is.

All right by me.

Only 7 hours??? With all that slacking off you must be near brain dead by now.

I recommend coffee, and lots of it. That'll cure what ails ya, and make you type your nuts off.

  TheFocus: Coffee!! That's the answer.

Nearly 50% more than cg.com! You deserve some kind of recognition for that.
