Oh dear, that bad, eh? :wink:

I thought at least you could have managed something like "I bought Fritz", or "I downloaded Houdini" :lol: :lol: :lol:

Let's face it, it is probably very necessary to present your ego at some point and in retrospect i realize that all your posts here are about your ego combined with arrogance and a huge selfsatisfaction.

Something to be jealous about, perhaps? :roll:

But now we are back on-topic: the idea that Chess programmers would be jealous borders the ridiculous. Like you say, we are much to satisfied with our accomplishments, and of course quite rightly so.

It is those without accomplishments who begrudge us our successes, try to belittle what others enjoy, drag down those who service the community with our efforts and creations, and behave like jealous spoiled brats when they don't get their way. As you so admirably demonstrate. :wink:

I don't know. Usually he is entertaining me, but I couldn't understand his latest babble, and was hoping for some explanation. He seemed to answer his own postings.
