I'm a North American, but live in Guatemala.

In terms of chess, I'm an amateur of mediocre ability. I have loved chess since I was in grade school, but only played in one tournament, which was when I was a kid.

And yes, I do love cats.

catlover: Beautiful game. Not sure I understand the post about Spanish speakers not getting the game title. "El talón de Aquiles" is Achille's heel, meaning someone's weak spot just as it does in English.

catlover: I've been using pgn4web as my standard game viewer for the last couple of weeks. The "Olga" viewer at some point simply stopped loading the games.

catlover: <LeifTerry: <gawain> Ha! I had exactly the same "solution".> That makes three of us. What a terrible way to start the week!
