Re: Interview with Gian-Carlo Pascutto available (english)

Earlier today, my entire post was deleted by the CCC Mods. Apparently I can post "this much" i.e. the below paragraphs. My post in its entirety at Hiarcs Forum =============================================== I really hate to rain on Frank's interview, but I must take exception to the follow paragrap...

Re: morality and legality of dowloading robbolito

There is no "reasonable suspicion" leeway. The supreme court enumerated the conditions necessary to do a search. My understanding that was all that was needed to justify a search. And a one-line comment in the incident report would be all one needs to describe that. You have piqued my curiosity to ...

Re: morality and legality of dowloading robbolito

1. Strelka was released. 2. Vas said "this is a reverse-engineered program that was derived by disassembling Rybka 1. I hereby claim this code as my own." 3. Now there is a publicly available copy of Rybka 1 (AKA strelka here) source code. 4. The similarities between fruit and strelka were startlin...

Re: morality and legality of dowloading robbolito

You trust Vas this much? Sure. Why not. What reason has he given me not to trust his word? Yes motive... there is a conflict of interest here. So what. The Standards for this "Forum Trial" are extremely low. Again I will say we can't base it on Criminal Law "Beyond a Reasonable Doubt" and the "Inno...

Re: morality and legality of dowloading robbolito

I think for practical purposes, if a misdemeanor or felony arrest is made during a traffic stop, an officer shouldn't have to justify a subsequent search of the vehicle. That is just common sense to anyone who has worked a traffic stop, but seems common sense is not so common anymore. Let me tell yo...

Re: morality and legality of dowloading robbolito

You forgot the bit where Vas said that without what he learned from Fruit, Rybka would only be about 20 elo weaker. No sir... I didn't forget. I intentionally left that out. :-) When Vas makes these "estimations" I take what he says with a grain of salt i.e. I don't lend much credence to them. A) B...

They could play soccer and at nighttime they are allowed to visit the CCC. There they could debate ext...

Re: morality and legality of dowloading robbolito

Right after Vas released Rybak he did in passing mention that he had seen the coding of Fruit. He did no indicate in any way that he copied an of the ideas presented in Fruit. The "so called" experts here have come up with that idea on their own and most likely because Ryybka is so strong and they ...

Re: morality and legality of dowloading robbolito

Vas remained silent regarding Fruit yet he spoke out loud about Strelka and Ippo(he said they were clones of Rybka) and this resulted in the controversy we have today in other words he was inconsistent you cant have it both ways When one is accused of something and remains silent... I think that is...

Re: morality and legality of dowloading robbolito

Your logic is flawed, however. Vas _claimed_ this program is a copy of Rybka 3. He opened the door. Yes I realize that he has said so... so I don't see how my logic is flawed just because he said such a thing. I have to take his word on that, and until it is demonstrated to me he is a habitual liar...
