Re: hacker scum and cyber security (even in chess)

Re: hacker scum and cyber security (even in chess)

no Milos, i'm not a specialist
in cybersecurity, which is why i made my posting btw

yes hackers don't need youtube, but i do suspect the Kali
Linux distribution (which was widely promoted on youtube)
made such intrusion as in my situation, a lot easier.

Re: hacker scum and cyber security (even in chess)

hi 'Flok' (mr van Heusden i presume) well it's 1.5 yrs ago, and my recollection may not be 100 pct accurate, but i have a reasonable memory, so to answer: - one miserable day, when i started the Chesspartner interface, for which i made a strong book (and played with the Shredder engine on Fics), it ...

Re: Chessbase patent

Alayan, i didn't patent a move, a registered an opening system with 1.e3 (and opening book) as intellectual property, but it's decades ago, and i wasn't into this chess world as i'm now... For the rest my message was in ironic style, and i'm ofcourse not going to claim 'ownership' of such an idea to...

Re: Chessbase patent

some 35 yrs ago when i didn't know much about chess i filed for intellectual property rights the move 1.e3 ! whereafter i was attacked by such persons as (not here anymore i guess) a certain Vvd as an idiot; now it's already proven to be the solution of losing chess. Mentioned Vvd (banned now since ...

hacker scum and cyber security (even in chess)

now CTF is gone (never to bother to post there coz politics is a no go for me in combination with chess) about hackers in computer (correspondence) chess: when i won the semifinals of the worldcup21 tourn, with a simple win7 system, no external firewall, and -apparently - a vulnerable dropbox, i got...

Re: Chessbase patent

it's for Chess Mentor, not Chessbase

but either such patents don't work, or
they were too late (with such a patent)

and they seem to be out of business,

Re: How close can we come to proving that white draws?

"why would proving that black can get a draw be an order of magnitude more difficult than proving that white can get a draw?" because it's more specific for chess i think, currently i can not think of other ideas than 'drawing margin'. While White has (a bit) more move options(*), Black also keeps e...

Re: How close can we come to proving that white draws?
