That is quite funny as we refused to give permission so to punish us they gave us the worst hardware - lol

It could have been worse. Sitting somewhere in my basement is a Dell Dimension with a P4 @ 2.4gHz and 256MB of DDR SDRAM....

When is Windows HIARCS 13 coming :?: Some of us don't have Macs you know.... :wink:

you are to be congratulated Richard

it's clearly not an engine to be taken lightly

Congrats Norman & Richard. Both of your engines did a great job in Thüringen. Lets hope we will see more of that in the upcoming events
