Re: The CB & CCRL monopoly game

As in the quote of Harvey's posted above. The problem here is that the quote is made up and is another one of those stupid threads copied and pasted here from elsewhere. (Note: I reply to you Harvey, because the original post suddenly disappeared during my writing of this post! Of course it is dire...

Re: Fabien's open letter to the community

Hi Guenther, Fabien did voice his interest in the issue and also voiced his opinion that Strelka is definitely a Fruit clone. On the other hand we know that Rajlich said that Strelka is actually Rybka. Hi Djordje, I never took this literally and he also retreated this statement later. I guess he wa...

Re: Fabien's open letter to the community

Dear Gabor, you seem to display an inordinate amount of skepticism regarding the state of affairs now. After "the father" of Fruit and all other suspected clones finally voiced his opinion and it's become finally clear that Rybka 1.0 at least stemmed from Fruit (and went commercial) you still seem ...

Re: Houdini is getting some wider press. Congratulations!

Fascinating, and an incredible blunder by ChessDom. It isn't to besmirch Houdini BTW, as that is not the problem. It is the fact they are promoting a small private computer chess tournament, with no official recognition, on their front page as the main article, after only three rounds, which is the...
