Re: Komodo vs Humanity: Nakamura Will Give It A Go

Hmmm - no. No interest in seeing computers beat up GMs nowadays.
Odds/etc sounds like fun to me :P

Re: Scid vs. PC 4.14

That's an option, but there should be some indication about the search ending. When you enable "fast and slow mode", the stats are updated when "fast" search concludes, but if they don't differ from the final ones (in a noticeable way), there's no other way to know, that the job's done. You could u...

Re: Scid vs. PC 4.14

Wow - you're right. The problem is progressbar updates are 10x slower on OS X due to buggy TCL . Searches are probably the same. To test, change the 5000 const in sc_tree_search to 1000,000 and recompile tkscid. I'll have to do something... just not sure what, laugh. Maybe remove the tree progressba...

Re: Windows 10 Experience

Mine, not so good. You keep your cool better than me :) I used their browser to try to install Open Office, since that is what I use for Word processing, etc. from home. It told me that Open Office was not compatible and threw me away from the page. OK, fine. I installed Firefox, and went back to t...

Re: Windows 10 Update Poll

It sounds like an improved GUI over Win8. But they are being typically [bad] about respecting people's simple rights. (It's a laugh to here other people losing it instead of myself :)) [About the win7 upgrade icon]The moment you push me into a corner, you corporate pieces of crap, I will fight back ...

Re: Windows 10 Update Poll

One big change is this - home users seem to be forced into automatic OS updates. Probably a very bad design decision imho.

Re: Scid vs. PC 4.14

OK. I don't know what version that is, but it's not 4.14. Probably worthwhile upgrading.

Re: Scid vs. PC 4.14

Thanks for your continued work on Scid vs PC. Here are two bits of feedback. 1) On linux I set a tournament to run 5 rounds, 15 seconds per game Ok - you have in fact set the time to be 0 seconds per game + 15 second increment, which it doesnt like. To play your time controls enter ".25 minutes 0 s...
