Re: I was right!

Why did IBM have to take the machine apart? Because it was an overpowered potato. Imagine if the myth was over after people discovered it was badly coded and only performed well because of the hardware. By my estimation Fruit 2.1 with 2005 hardware was enough to outmatch Deep Blue. IBM's stock went...

Re: I was right!

i thought it was some weird typo at the time like they can never get it right from letter to print. But i think they scrambled my name to not let it appear Michael Adams of England was saying that. Mike Ronald Seattle Washington match in the letter in chess life per my signing but Udame was what the...

Re: I was right!

I can't believe i told Kasparov to give up chess in a published letter to Chess Life. But this was my pre internet years and this was my first serious encounter with Kasparov as a person. And i took this 10 dollar bet as a serious bet. And my initial reaction is what is he some kind of baby. Screen ...

Re: I was right!

i was commenting to the same friend that started my reminisces on Deep Blue that that period late 90s was the dividing point in computer chess. In summer of 1988 i had a Fidelity Excellence chess board computer touted as 2000 USCF. One guy at an event i went to had the same thing. He was a 1700. sai...

Re: Crazyhouse castling rules

my understanding is that the rook and king must not move to be able to castle. if the rook leaves that square the rights to that side castle are gone. Dropping it there to me seems no different than simply moving it back there with a regular move. So i have programmed my pulsar chess engine which pl...

Are there any major Android Apps that support Winboard Protocol Engines?

I've been getting some criticism in reviews that my Pulsar Chess engine on android, https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lantern.michaeladams.pulsarchessengine&hl=en_US , is not also a stand alone and can't for example be run in DroidFish. I'm now trying to explain it's not a UCI engine...
