sloppy posts

In a private message, someone pointed out what appears to be an error
in my hyperchess challenge:

>I hereby issue a challenge to the Extropians: two years years from now,
>in September of 1988, the first annual Checkmate tournament will take
>place. Be there or be square.

To enter the hyperchess tournament, first you have to build a time machine.
I never said this game was supposed to be easy.

No, seriously: I apologize for the sloppiness of my recent posts. It just
occurred to me that in my reply to Tom Quinn, I lost track of my numbering
and called two different points #3. There is really no excuse for this.
I can only hope that the content of the post makes up for the errors of detail.

I am disappointed by the lack of response to the hyperchess challenge.
It's easy enough to talk about SuperIntelligence, but when you are called on
to design one, that's a horse of a different color, hmmm? Anyway the
tournament will take place in 1998, with or without an Extropian team.
