Ivie Urieto acknowledged my contributions to her Chess Journey on her website . Here is the text ( with the misspellings ) :
Rish from RCTOus has been pivotal in my chess journey. He gifted me a premium ichess package, adapting my courses when Chessable took over. In a remarkable gesture, he named a Nebraska tournament after me for community support in 2023. His support and dedication have left an indelible mark on my path.
After 12 years of putting more than $30,000 USD into Chess in Omaha none of my Chess Events are never listed on the Omaha or Nebraska websites ,
I appreciate the Afrikan Princess future Chess Master giving me due credit !

I was at iCafe from 3:30pm to 7:00pm but no Chess Players came .
I used the time to download Ivie Urieto new logo and write a program .
I wrote the program and tested it in less than 3 hours .
It is to be used online by less than 20 users .
My 1st computer program was in BASIC on punch cards at IIT in Chicago IL USA summer of 1975 .
My Health Scare
I was working a full time job and a part time for 6 years and running Chess Events .
I thought the occasional numbness and tingling in my hands was because of overuse .
I discovered on the internet it was a mild form of Neuropathy .
I immediately had to cut lots of calroes and sugar from my diet .
I started taking 4 items daily :
Several weeks later no more numbness and tingling .
I had no idea how much calories and sugar I was intaking 'on the run' between jobs etc .
Way too many Lattes , Sweet Teas , Sode Pops , Snacks .
I am 62 now and I must make these dietary changes permanent.

Jim 'CC' McKay was the most professional boss I ever had .
I worked under CC (Commander in Chief) at Northwestern Bell at 19th & Dodge Cosmos 5th floor in 1985 .
The pen stopped working 30 years to the day CC gave the pen to me .
