Re: Fwd: Open letter to the CSVN

Sorry Robert, but these are only a lot of personal attacks towards Ed, as far as I can see. Ed really has nothing to gain with making false statements, he is not in any way involved in the Rybka project and just like you, I would assume, he is only interested in a fair review of the case. The same ...

Re: playchess sysops/official complaints

the exact chat was - other user 'i dont like arabs'...me, 'no me neither So you were basically having a conversation where you held forth with the fact that you don't like Arabs? And now you're surprised that you're experiencing some backlash? Do you understand the racist nature of a comment like t...

Re: How much stronger is the new Stockfish 2.1?

Good call. Norman is approaching troll status. Crikey, even trying out the idea that Stockfish should have derivative status?! Really?! Gimme a break. But Bob got fished :) Not that one can really blame him, it's tough dealing with the like of that. All I can say is, don't feed the trolls. So, any n...

Re: Fabien's open letter to the community

still dont give a damn (or see why i should) if vas took open source code & improved it by 100+ elo. whether he charged or not The reason that one should give a damn is that the Fruit code was made open source under a license - the GPL license. This means the code is free and open, but subject to t...

Re: Chief Differences between CCC v OPEN

So perhaps you think that you are showing me how misguided my preferences are? Thanks, but I'm quite capable of evaluating the merits of these places all by my little ol' self. I'm not here to make you happy or live up to your expectations. I'm here (or there) to read and participate in ways that su...

Re: Chief Differences between CCC v OPEN

I'm going to spend my time on the board that works best for my interests, the one that suits me. Whether that board has 3 elected moderators, or a single non-elected moderator makes no nevermind to me, it's the result that matters. I don't think that elected vs unelected moderators defines the outco...

Re: Monte Carlo chess engines

So I know Rybka has a monte carlo analysis tool, but does anyone know of any chess engines that purely work via Monte Carlo (i.e. just pick the move that leads to the highest winning percentage in random games?) Thanks, Pete Your terminology is a bit spread. So, I am going to state multiple possibi...

Re: Ji there Talkchess forum!

The point is this: it wouldn't make one iota of difference even if he DID offer you this evidence. You have already made it clear that independently of the so-called Fruit affair, and even if the Ippos were PROVEN to be clones, you believe that reverse engineering a secretive author's work in order...
