I play chess on-line at Gameknot. It is free. Just start a game and challenge "louderback". Games of "reversi" or Othello are available, but take some finding. Contact me if you are interested.
I play backgammon at Zooescape. It is free. Feel free to start a game of backgammon (I don't play the other games they offer) and challenge "louderback".
I chat as you all doubtless know at Walkers in Darkness. An id and a nickname of your choosing is required. It is a mental health support chat not for everyone.
I can be reached via Skype as karllouderback and genuinely enjoy voice or video chat but will be willing to type messages back and forth.
I am (rarely) on Yahoo IM as Karlthehun. I suggest you contact me via e-mail to let me know you want to use this product. I enjoy voice, video, and text on Yahoo.
My poetry (though it has languished since I've been programming) can be found at louderpoetry
My prose (also languishing) is at louderprose
The dreaded louderblog will eventually stop showing up on FB. You might make not of the link if you are interested in following my daily whinging.
Since my days are filled of late with learning the Ruby programming (scripting) language, I am considering creating a community based on my learning process. If I do, I'll share the link before my LJ/FB connexion goes away.
