Thanks for the kind words Steve and Abyss. I am actually going to be part of a nice educational effort
in South East Asia (for those who don't know I have invented many puzzles, some have been mass-produced).
We agreed that we could use Greece as a base to make my prototypes, because I personally know some excellent
people, while I want to return and help the situation by affecting positively the economy, and most importantly,
pride (which was trashed by our own politician-traitors).
Anyway, I do not want to go too political and sound mean. I am returning because I never adjusted to the Australian
way of life the way locals do. I was a professor at the University of Western Australia, but maths I like, puzzles I love.
It will be absolutely great to meet up with all of you, and share more interesting news. Also, I realised that I accidentally
made two profiles ("kastellorizo" and "Pantazis"). Is it possible to somehow merge them? (I want to keep the first one,
i.e. the one I am using now).
I predict I should be there around March. For business reasons I may be in Hiliomodi, but most of the time I will be staying
in the house I am building in Kastellorizo island. As for Asia, I will be spending a huge amount of time between Thailand
and Singapore promoting puzzles to education.
Anyway, I really need to take the dust off my joystick. And I certainly understand what it means that KO2 has become
global and what it takes to be the world's Nr 1. Because some of you may remember the arcade game Tehkan World Cup,
for which I still hold the MARP world record since... 2001! Link here:http://replay.marpirc.net/r/%28tehkanwc ... hkanwcc%29
Of course, KO2 as a game is much more advanced (aftertouch, etc), but I guess I should be "competitive enough",
(if you know what I mean), especially as I managed to get some national prize in KO2 too almost 22 years ago.
I will also bring some of my puzzles to literally destroy your concentration, just in case you are all too good for me! LOL
See you all!
