I stopped reading that post after I came across this:
Engines like Stockfish, Critter, Spark and others are tactically very strong because the search algorithm is optimized very good. But these engines lack chess knowledge, they just have a basic understanding of positional aspects.
The Rybka people now owe me about $1.75. That's roughly what it will cost to wash the shirt and pants I had to put into the washing machine and dryer, and the mouthful of root beer that was spat/coughed onto the clothing.
This production is being brought to you by Rybka: "The engine made from scratch.™"
