Who is Pericles ?

Heya !

I was asked that many times, since I started running this blog.
So I'm gonna introduce myself a bit. Better late than never, don't you agree ?

I'm a 30 years old man (at least, that's what I thought, until I saw my Google Twin below), from France, Britanny precisely. I started playing Go more than a decade ago, when I was still a student. At that time, I was studying english and german (expect some german posts someday !) at the university.
That's about when I discovered Hikaru no Go, attending some anime/japan fanclub in my city. None of the volumes were issued officially, so we used to exchange our "collections". I read HnG overnight, litteraly.
The day after, I decided I'd make a quick search on the Internet to find yout about the rules. At this moment, I had absolutely no idea that Go was a real game. I thought it'd been invented just for the manga.
Of course, I stumbled upon Kiseido Go Server and immedialty tried playing a few games, having done the very few tutorials available on the net at that time.

I went to 30k to about 5k without any teacher in a bit less than 6 months. That may sound fast but I used to play 250 games per month, back then. After that, I got taught by some kind teachers, reached dan level within  a couple of years, and started teaching too, you know what comes next.

So now that you know more about me, you certainly are wondering "what does he look like ?", "what's his name?" and such.
My name ? I won't tell.
My look ? well... A friend of mine taught me today that one can load a picture in "Google Pictures" and have it search for similar pics. Of course, I immediatly uploaded my picture (who wouldn't?) to search for my twins all around the world.

So, according to Google, this is what I look like (I'm a mix of all that, use your creativity, heh)

You can imagine me half male / half female, loing flowers, liking boxing,  and ...err...wait...don't imagine more :) Let's keep our imagination for the boards, shall we ?

That's about enough of an introduction, perhaps I'll tell more someday, when I have drunk enough, enough time to share the little secrets about me that you all seem to want to know :)
