Who Moved My Cheese? was a popular management book in the 1990s. In this book, a kindly manager (played if my unreliable memory serves by a smelly fat rat) explains to dimwitted mice (who symbolize the not-so-dimwitted people who actually do the work) that corporate downsizing is a Very Good Thing, and that one can get used to doing the work of three mice, because a morsel of cheese every two weeks is better than none.
But I ramble....
I will admit that the book does have one valid point: change is inevitable.
We are migrating our registration to Bill Buklis's King Registration, which uses any payment processor as long as it's PayPal.
Some of you nice people registered for next weekend's events on our Squarespace e-commerce site, which processes through Stripe. We are still processing our memberships and (don't laugh) prepaid UIC parking vouchers through Stripe.
I *think* I have manually entered all of the Squarespace transactions into King Registration. But it couldn't hurt for you to confirm that I've put you in the right section....
I *know* that there was a problem with next week's Rated Beginners' Open registration (there is a RBO on Saturday 10/28 and another on Sunday 10/29), I believe that is all fixed now.
And we've just posted our calendar for the remainder of 2017 on our website at http://www.chichess.org/events. It should be up on the ICA calendar when Maret has a chance to do so.
If you catch any mistakes we (most likely I) have made, please drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org. It would be most appreciated!
