Re: Severe windows 10 problems. What to do?

Sorry to interrupt the monologue Henk but aren't you making things worse searching files that are important to you with only ancient Dos tools. Nice to learn Dos but ancient, books you need were in De Slegte but De Slegte is also out of business... All the while any fruitless search will increase yo...

Re: Any engines solve this one?

After forcing Qxg4 white is going to win. But black is not going to play Qxg4 on the previous ply, but instead Qh4. r1b2rk1/pp3ppp/1n2p3/3pP3/2PN1Bq1/b1PB4/P1Q2P1P/1K1R3R w - - acd 36; acs 207; bm Qd2; c3 "Qd2"; ce 218; pm Qd2; pv Qd2 Qh5 Rhg1 g6 Bg5 Nxc4 Qf4 f6 Bxf6 Rf7 h4 Bd7 Nf3 Bf8 Rg5 Bh6 Rxh5...

Re: Any engines solve this one?

Certainly interesting guys, if that is correct, is it certain that 2. g4 is the main line intended after 1. Nd4 Qh5. Seeing nothing yet with Multi PV overnight. Currently at -0.10 for 2. g4 fifth choice. r1b2rk1/pp3ppp/1n2p3/3pP2q/2PN1B2/b1PB2P1/P1Q2P1P/1K1R3R w - - Engine: Kaissa IV NoContempt (512...

Re: Stockfish patches

SF dev. Why are some (up to 6) patches released in one day (often less than 1 hour), and then again 10 or more days without a single patch? Why so many within 1 or 2 hour? It just depends on when the maintainer, which is Marco, has the time to make the decision whether a patch passes or not and upd...

Attack testposition for wild engines?

Related to a recent testposition . We know 1. h4 is not best, probably third best move. 1. Ng4 wins outright, and 1. Kh1 Kh8 promising, but if 1. h4, not every engine will find 1...Kh8 (to make way for Rg8) But now, does White still have some compensation for the Black extra pawn? As a human I would...

Re: a brief update - yet another name change

Funny, I had just thought of suggesting in your other post in the programming forum that "Lewis" might also be a nice name for a chess program, and that you already had a logo for it with your new chess man. Lewis as the companion of Leela. I associate it also with Sgt. Lewis, deputy of Morse and la...

Re: Severe windows 10 problems. What to do?

Ik wil je niet ontmoedigen, maar als je dat nog niet gedaan hebt, zou ik nog maar een USB erbij nemen en daar de bestanden die je liever niet kwijt wilt op zetten. Als je er nog bij kunt. Het is maar een gok maar het zou toch kunnen dat die update van Windows zo veel van je systeem vraagt dat de har...
