I regret to report you that I have to delay more.

The website has some big bugs, some of which are very hard to fix.

I'm even more sorry that my programmer has to give up fixing big bugs on my website for his personal reasons.

I can imagine that many of you get angry and upset and want to reprimand me... Because of that, I was scared to announce this, but I should.

At this point all I can say is "I am sorry".

Right now I'm thinking about approaching a programmer who has made a good Go website, which has been run successfully for some years.

I don't know when to start the website, nor do I want to give you any expectations. This is because a programmer may very well make a completely new website, which may take some time.

I am really sorry about all of these.

I deeply, deeply apologize for the further delay.

BTW, my website is a big project, and it'll take me at least 3 years, possibly 5 years to present all the problems in my head. So far I've been presenting the most important ones.

I am really, really sorry about the delay, and I would appreciate your patience and understanding.

  6. You start winning more games than ever before.
  7. You get ahead in your games even against strong players.
