Re: Why there is no interest in Computer with odds Vs Humans match?

Time odds has also been mentioned as one possible way to handicap the engine. I recall 1:30 or 1:60 time scale was discussed as possible candidates. Alternately 1:90 or 1:120 time scale but Komodo is allowed to think during human's turn.

Ovyron: the days when human can compete against the computer in the classical starting position is by a long shot over. Material odds or cripple the hardware is needed to give the human any practical chances.

And downloading one file at a time is a headache, although it has to be done once. I had to do so wi...

Re: DTM50

Okey. I'm tempted to buy the My Book Duo 20TB HDD for 7-piece syzygy storage for backup. The problem is the noise level per reviews. But i think for 7-piece storage drive and for 7-piece adjudication (once cutechess supports it hopefully soon) the external drive will be fine as backup drives usually...

Re: DTM50
