Re: A Very Novel Idea Concerning Vas- BE FAIR

Just because somebody hasn't been proven guilty in a court of law (and even if they've been judged not guilty) doesn't mean that they didn't commit the crime. A lot of guilty people go free or are never caught in the first place. Mr. Rajlich isn't going to admit he used Fruit source. He never let a ...

Re: A Very Novel Idea Concerning Vas- BE FAIR

When you have someone's character in question to the point it can affect the man's living, be fair at least. I would propose a statute of limitations on how long he can be drug thru the court of public opinion. No matter your side in this, surely one would think, yea or nay- at least give him the s...

Re: A Very Novel Idea Concerning Vas- BE FAIR

Well, that's different. Convicted criminals have no rights as to whether their crimes can be brought up. They're a matter of public record. Also, the statute of limitations never expires on some crimes (i.e. murder). But I'm game. Let's set a statute of limitations on how long this issue can be drag...

Re: Rybka Cluster Rental

If memory still serves me ... The Anand - Topalov WCH match comes to mind. Remember Topalov had access to the Rybka Cluster (114 cores), Harvey gave access to Anand his system (16-cores). Anand Won the Match. Topalov must not have had a wired private bathroom (with convenient storage in the ceiling...

Re: Fabien's open letter to the community

As the saying goes, every pot finds a black cattle. Something must have gone wrong at Babelfish. I sometimes believe five or six of you have programmed bots to read certain threads and reply to each other. The saying closest to what you may have wanted is "That's the pot calling the kettle black", ...

Of course, that's human nature. Who would want to take an engine rated 300 points lower in there to get pounded by the top 2 or 3?

Re: Fabien's open letter to the community

I don't use free email machines. Non-secure and I have too many discussions about student grades and such. My email is on my office box for the same security reasons. The US FERPA (Family Educational Right to Privacy Act) is pretty onerous and requires reasonable protection for student discussions....

The people who PAID for Rybka probably care.

Man, what kind of internet connection do you have? It took you 8 minutes since you've made this post to upload 1.5MB. That's a staggering 25kb/s upload speed :lol:. I can remember when that speed would be staggeringly good. Back in the days of 56k dialups, it took about 3 minutes to download one MB...
