Re: Any Fortran coder ?

I think I never got beyond Fortran 60 (or something like that), before I switched to other programming languages. Fortran 77 already appeared 'after my time'... Problem used to be that you couldn't do recursion; I don't know if later Fortrans fixed that. I used ForTran 77 for a while....old times.

I will write it so that everyone will understand me well. The pirate versions of the Komodo engine are much better than the developers themselves.

Re: Is Deep Blue source code open?

Deep Blue was a historical milestone and proof of that is that we still talk about it 20 years later and that only now is the exponential growth of the power of hardware surpassing that titanic monster. Well put. It was indeed a titanic monster and I hope one day some company will have the vision t...

I don't know if I would call it a 'Oh Shit Moment',

Re: Knights at g5 h5 by lc0

I have long held a theory in my own personal over-the-board human chess which I haven't seen in a any chess book: that there is an advantage of having two knights side by side, especially if near the opponent's king.

Knights often make each other redundant, but when they are side by side, they don't.

Just to have the default Stockfish app which in my opinion is the best for ease of use and information compared to SmallFish which is a pain to use for analysis. I think the original SF app is still stuck on version 6.
Agreed. An update to the Stockfish app would be amazing

Re: Stockfish 9 on iOS ?

Thanks, this is exactly what I wanted ! I wonder how fast/strong it will be on the iPad Pro 11 !? SF 9 on the new iPad Pro will be *far* stronger than any human on the planet, that's for sure. Here are some comparisons of the A12X cpu to other commonly used CPUs: https://bgr.com/2018/11/01/new-ipad...
