Re: Please, that's enough clones and reclones polemics,

Tell me if I'm wrong, but I would wager that 10 or 15 years ago there were very significant differences between the top 10 chess engines in both "Ideas" and code. Contrast that with today; I bet the top 5 or 10 engines all use the same ideas. All use bitboards. All use all of the state of the art i...

Re: Please, that's enough clones and reclones polemics,

If, in Shakespear's day, suppose that someone had improved the grammar of one of his lines, or made a really funny pun. Does this author get full credit for "Much Ado About Nothing" by Chester Foobody? Your analogy is wrong. There are two extremes, one is writing or lets call it plaintext. There ch...

Re: Why Was CCC Created?

Ed Schroder, who even sued him. It's beyond reasonable thhinking why sueing someone without evidence is seen as a good idea. Actually we have the same scenario with the CCC and its actual hate campaign against Vas Rybka. They campaign allegedly having evidence but refuse to sue because they know of...

Re: Are chessprogrammers jealaous ?

But why that ones who are not quiet are attacking others. Publishing Ippolit open source was a real revolution and the revolution has won. It is a fact. Asking revolution if it is legal does not make a point. It is a fact that we have to accept and live with. Every programmer can take the sources a...

Re: Allow steroids

It took Vas two and a half years to improve Rybka for less than 40 Elo. Allegedly his own engine. And you think he could improve Ippo for 60-70 Elo as Robert did in six months??? The fact that you continue to stress this, suggest you have really no idea as to how stupid a statement that is. Of cour...
