Re: A New Name for Doch....

How about Android? (An automaton that possesses human features.) The name does have some buzz these days.

Re: Test Position bm Qd7

The initial position is too hard for my program, the position after Qd5 is hard enough: [d]rn3rk1/p3bppp/4p3/1Qpq4/5B2/6P1/P3PPNP/1RR3K1 w - - bm Bxb8 16 -55 3860 46959440 Qb7 Re8 Bxb8 Qxb7 Rxb7 Rxb8 Rxa7 Ra8 Rxa8 Rxa8 Rc2 Rb8 Ne3 Rb4 h4 16 -38 4856 59292164 Be3 Nd7 Nf4 Qd6 Rd1 Rb8 Rxd6 Rxb5 Rxb5 Bx...

I had thought my rep code was wrong, but it turns out there's an issue with pondering that causes an il...
