Re: AMD VS INTEL

Is The AMD ATHLON still regarded as best for Chess Programs. I already have an AMD ATHLON dual-core 5000+ I'm looking at purchasing an AMD ATHLON dual-core 6000+ Am I wasting my money going from a 5000+ to 6000+ ? Also, how do the dual-cores perform with the Deep Versions of Chess Programs like Dee...

Re: HGM's Winboard_F tournament

Thank to Harm for his interesting automated tournament site! Watching, what happened there with my SMIRF engine, I had been able to recalibrate SMIRF's timing. Moreover I saw again an earlier known weakness during mating situations. Well, I am happy that the tourney is useful! :D But you could also...

Re: ethical dilemma

Robert, in a different world it would be possible to share ideas and property and be happy. But in our world we need people to be successful in order to have you (educational system) and other people be employed -- and this often means not sharing for free, but instead making money. It seems that y...

Re: Engine authors, beware of false-draw-claim forfeits!

I do not see any need to alter the behavior of WinBoard in Human-engine, Human-ICS and engine-ICS (Zippy) mode. If an ICS is involved the ICS controls the score sheet and will do whatever it wants. If a Human is involved he will know when the engine makes a false call, and when it is crashed and sh...
