Syzygy 5-1 egtb

Is it possible? Does it exist, if they have been created would anyone be interested in SCP or ftp'ing to me so I can make a torrent.

If possible, I can gen them myself if given advise on how :)

Danke!

Anyone know who runs the site? I see he is still offering the syzygy 6men and others. I'd like to add him as a "web" source to the torrent if possible but dont want to without him/her saying its'ok..

BTW grabbing this http://tablebase.sesse.net/3-4-5.zip not sure if syzygy or Nalimov.

Re: Nalimov EGTB + Torrent

Anyone have a good md5 or sha1 of the files? I *think* I did both when I put them in cold storage, but want to make sure they are correct before making the torrent.

Maybe someone else with the files can help me out to make sure?

Nalimov EGTB + Torrent

Curious any other interest? I figure by now most people have migrated to Syzygy but I had an email request for the 3-4-5-6 set. Anyone else interested or mind help seeding on my torrent site? It's almost 2 TB and honestly will need to dig the external drives out that have them. But as long as their ...

Re: OICS EGTB Torrent Site: Donations

I want to thank ALL who have donated TY. I've hit truly hard times, but it's nice to know people are willing to back/pay for hosting it! TYSM, as this site I feel is my real contribution to the cause. I'm not an uber programmer or wrote a super engine. But I spent time to at least help the cause :) ...

OICS Server as repo for ANY engine author for web distributi

The OICS server has been up for years and mostly been used for EGTB "torrent site" But the server has lots of space, and now thank to 5 generous donators, fully paid for at least 1 years. I'd be open to create accounts and allow webspace for people. It's a 40gig server, so lots of space. I could EVE...

Re: OICS EGTB Torrent Site: Donations

While more money is appreciated, I must admit this has been an amazing reach! Ty for donors. People looking for more money, might not say this, but I will. OICS is purely paid for at LEAST for another year. Not sure if donors want to be known, but the 5 who have donated especially the first, was a G...

ICS from scratch

As mentioned, I'm out of work and have time on my hands. Writing an open source ICS from scratch has been a dream for years and I honestly want it to be clean and dedicated to computer chess (but doesnt have to be). I want to stick to the ICS (FICS/ICC) protocol so xboard and the myriad of existing ...

Re: On-line engine blitz tourney January

Crossing fingers, praying, and general good will :) If there are any engines you'd like to see play I have some hardware I can toss in the mix. Otherwise I look forward to watching as a spectator. I still have my Raspberry Pi, w/ full screen xboard so I can chill on the couch, eat popcorn and watch ...
