Re: A problem CC community has

I know David for 25+ years and I am confident he will go all the way the programmers want him to go. The problem is not David nor the ICGA (=David) but its programmers and the ongoing boycott of Rybka as lastly demonstrated when Peter Skinner was in favor to allow Rybka in his CCT tournament. Every...

Re: How about we settle the WCCC argument?

yeah, yeah, yeah, everybody believes your reasoning here ;-) OK, I'm out of this thread. Bye. Why ? Your call for equal hardware is as old as the existence of computer chess and as such have taken place for decades including an official world title. Nevertheless the unlimited category is another be...

Re: How about we settle the WCCC argument?

Obviously an invitation-only tourney can never be called a 'World Championship'. And if you are excluding the strongest Chess entities in the World by artificial hardware limitations, you could never call it a championship for 'computer Chess'. You might as well require that the program source is n...

Re: How about we settle the WCCC argument?

Peter it would never have been posted here if you had not alluded to what i said in the post i replied to. Then Harvey, post the entire conversation. You stated that my signature on the Hiarcs Forum was now misleading: Peter Skinner Kikrtech.com Authors Against Piracy Did I not state that I still r...

Re: How about we settle the WCCC argument?

Why would I, as an author, enter my program if already two others had entered it before me? It would reduce the chances of my program winning by 50%... I don't think Peter understands what you are saying. He just missed it and that's probably not what he meant. Based on what he actually said anyone...

Re: How about we settle the WCCC argument?

It appears that the real reason for this tournament is slightly different: The whole point of the tournament is to prove how utterly useless it is, and what a waste of time it will be. Nothing more. The reason the ICGA has good tournament rules (And I try to follow the same rules with the CCT) is b...

Re: How about we settle the WCCC argument?

Well, what you say to Harvey is your own business, although personally I wouldn't give him the time of day. I guess, however, in the light of the PM contents, the question potential participants will want answered before handing over their $100 is this: Will you commit to run this tournament with t...

Re: How about we settle the WCCC argument?

For the record: Well, leaving aside unauthorised(?) publication of PMs, there's a pretty serious mismatch between the implications of that message and your statements in this thread. Can you explain please? 1. Yes, I do think this type of tournament is useless, and will wind up being a hardware/boo...
