Re: 25.g6!!

Rybka sees g6 as the best move at a reported depth of 12 but changes its mind to Bg2, only to revert back to g6 at a reported depth of 14. Analysis by Rybka 3 32-bit : 1.Be5 = (0.02) Depth: 2 00:00:00 1.Bg4 = (0.03) Depth: 2 00:00:00 1.Bg4 = (0.04) Depth: 3 00:00:00 1.Bg4 = (0.00) Depth: 4 00:00:00 ...

Re: On discussing clones

And the bulk of my customers would not care, they pay me to get the strongest possible Chess entity, and could not care less if I obtained it from the lost and found or by rubbing a lamp. Yes but they might care if they read on an internet forum that commercial Program A is a clone of free Program ...

Re: Experiences with Windows XP SP3 anyone?

never change a running system. I suppose it's possible that SP3 might give problems if you update your current system, I don't know. Whenever I install a service pack, I always slipstream it and reinstall windows to get a completely clean install. Sure it takes longer but I think it's the safest me...

Re: To Jeroen and interested minds, re. Tiger node count

I think you have a problem taking in facts that don't fit in with your agenda. It's already been pointed out to you that CT never used the word collaborator to describe JN. Or if he did, can you point out the relevant message. Of course you are correct, see my P.S. elsewhere. But what strikes me is...

Re: To Jeroen and interested minds, re. Tiger node count

A collaborator in the Dutch language means f.e. Dutch people who joined the Nazis during world war II and betrayed their own people. So maybe now you understand why I am upset? For the record, the meaning is more or less the same in Danish. And when used in English, it usually seems to follow that ...

Re: To Jeroen and interested minds, re. Tiger node count

Chris W uses the word 'collaborator' and here is a link where you can see what this means: http://www.mijnwoordenboek.nl/vertalen.php Collaborator: 'a traitor to one's country'. So a mod uses this word addressing me. I'd like official excuses for this. Collaborator can have more than one meaning. c...

Re: Hiarcs for Palm - overclocking ?

There's also PXA Clocker. Although it worked for me I found that the batteries ran out much quicker so I stopped using it.
