Re: Amazon EC2 cloud

I've run Leela on EC2 successfully on both Windows and Ubuntu. Never a problem. On a more parallel front, I concocted a framework which breaks down any computable problem across AWS Spots and it was fine for fairly complex things speeding them up massively. Mostly these days Lambda on AWS is recomme...

Hopefully Banksia GUI will support Dark theme a well as it is best not to look at bright screens and do closeup work for many decades. They contribute to increased intraocular eye pressure which leads to glaucoma. Hence...

If I could see the labels, I could select from the piece types, piece colors, square colors, and board backgr...
