Re: http://www.worldchesslive.com/bj/index.html

OK, thanks Ted, obviously there is a problem. I hadn't noticed in Mozilla the warning in the lower right hand corner that said there was an authentication problem. I would like to purchase this product, so I think I'll fire off an email to them and let them know what is going on. That'll teach me to...

Re: http://www.worldchesslive.com/bj/index.html

That's odd. The purchase link goes to an https address (https://www.worldchesslive.com/bj/purchase.html#). Does it revert back to an http address after you've filled out information on several screens?

Re: Are you sick of the Ippo/Robbo spamming of CCC?

I voted yes, because I'm sick and tired of clone bickering drowning out good stuff. There's a new version of Junior out, yet there's nary a word about it in CCC. Apparently people these days are more interesting in putting each other down than talking about computer chess. Link to Bobby Junior: http...

Re: Little Thought Updated

Am I the only one having problems getting Little Thought 1.04 to use its own book? Looking at the Arena debug log, it appears to load the book successfully, printing out the message: Successfully loaded opening book file (LittleThought.book) but it never actually plays any opening moves. I've double...

I emailed Gianluigi Masciulli asking for Golem 0.4, but I never got a response from him. I too wouldn't mind trying out this engine.

I really hope that no mother-in-law reads this thread.

Re: Ares 1.0 in honor of the NASA Ares I-X Space Rocket

Hi Ted, download the file http://www.thorstenczub.de/Ares1.0.prg from Thorsten's site and rename it to Ares1.0.exe .

I'm not sure what's wrong with the download at WBEC, all I get is a Zip file with an empty folder.

I would venture to say that illegal cloning of copyrighted material is a much greater wrong than giving an original engine a name with a swear word in it. I'm a big boy, I don't let names hurt me.

Re: Shitta, Bugga, Tossa, a disgrace to Computer Chess?

.........who are too ashamed to put their names to them for obvious reasons. Ashamed? Really? I was under the impression that a certain group of programmers cloned their own engines and assigned them these silly names as a form of protest against widespread cloning and the damage that it has done t...
