Re: What the computer chess community needs to decide

3. Ippolito is heavily based on reverse enginnering Rybka 3 and so what? This is one I can never understand as it is based on the argument "two wrongs make a right". The people who argue it almost all base it on "since Rybka is a ripoff, this one is ok", or... two wrongs make a right. Just my 2 cen...

Re: How does Mr. Rajlich know the Ippolit series is Rybka 3?

According to Mr. Rajlich and company, The Ippolit series is or began as reverse-engineered Rybka 3. Mr. Rajlich claims that he lost the source of Rybka 3. Therefore, how does Mr. Rajlich know that the Ippolit series is or was reverse-engineered Rybka 3? The only logical explanation is that he still...

Re: Draw or can white find an advantage

I my Dragon analysis I found myself in this position as black. It seems that black should be able to secure a draw here, but many plans are available. I consider e5 or Re8 as viable, but Houdini likes h5. Can anyone find a winning plan for white, or is my claim of a probable draw correct? [d] 1rb2r...

Re: Fabien's open letter to the community

I have also seen where those public machines have been broken into, and files copied (including 100Ks of credit card numbers). IMAP won't help you one bit there... It's rather simple. Take all your programs zip it in a file (I seriously doubt there would be more than 100MB size in total) and encryp...

Re: Fabien's open letter to the community

Bob, a big difference between 1995 and now is that now you can encrypt, zip and email the source to yourself and it will take you 3 minutes. It is that simple. I read long time ago when Strelka came out someone asked Vasik whether it might be possible that his code got stolen, he said no, because h...

Re: Fabien's open letter to the community

Neh. They had Rybka 3 beta available for some time, they were testing/tuning it, for what, months? Not a single backup copy in that timeframe? Who does that? They might very well have the source for some of the betas. I think what was said was that the exact one that became the release wasn't saved...
