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: RIP Geocities

Yahoo! has shut down a number of other services aside from GeoCities, so I would imagine the economy has played a part. Here is an article about the situation: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/technology/2009/10/geocities-closing.html The Thinker downloads are available here: http://cid-2991af457de54...

I guess the rec.games.chess.politics usenet group must really be dead, because that's where I first saw the source to this program, months ago.

Re: Problem with UCI and Arena

You can use Arena's debug window (F4 key) to view all the I/O that Arena generates and receives, from Arena's point of view. Maybe compare that to your log file and see if there's some sort of difference.
