Re: Regarding Talkchess update and features

Shoveling the job out to google or other advertising conglomerate isnt the only method of getting advertising onto a site.

Re: Komodo updates Sub

Some people recognize cryptic stuff, some don't. Cryptically? All right, decoding.... Crocodile or tree trunk? Chimera or correct perception? Reality or illusion? Fact or projection?

Especially from someone who himself released 2 clones as own work. Really, I didn't know that Günther Simon is a chess programer. What eng...
