This place ibecomming so boring.

Post by Bill Rogers » Fri Aug 06, 2010 6:45 am

For the last 24 hours not one new post has been entered here. Not one intelligent word or sentence. What is going on, are you guys all going to sleep? Even the last few post were or did not convey anything worth reading about. Have all your intellectional functions stopped working?
How about some one posting a chess logic or posing a few new ideas on lhow to write a better chess program.
I have been an active member here alsmost since the begining and in the begining it was a lot more fun.

In the last 24 hrs there have been literally dozens of posts about every possible facet of computer chess
positions,Programming,gui's..tournaments ,live games ..a forum game ..etcetc
the only thing i dont see much of are flame wars and arguments for the sake of arguing
perhaps that is what you are missing?
some good old reality TV?
i know some come here for that reason alone
if so ..i for one am glad you are bored

Bill,

Maybe your internet connection dropped 24 hours ago - maybe its not that everything has stopped but that you've become unplugged :-)

No problem, if 1.d4 remains a valid move.
My engine was quite strong till I added knowledge to it.
