Adam's Computer Chess Page

Post by Adam Hair » Sat May 12, 2012 3:17 pm

I have created a page with Google Blogger. Over the past three years, I have learned a lot about computer chess (though I have much still to learn), and I decided to try to give back to the community in some way.

At the very least, my efforts will have value due to the links I provide. Those links are the source of almost all of my knowledge concerning computer chess.

My goal for this blog is to present the results of my testing and experiments with computer chess engines, as well as to provide information to others concerning engines, GUIs, and ancillary programs. In addition, I hope to enlighten the newcomer, and possibly the old-timer (ever once in a while), by high-lighting the work of the programmers and the enthusiasts who have contributed to this hobby/field of endeavor. I truly appreciate the amount of time and effort these people have spent, especially since I have been reaping the fruits of their labors, and this is my way of honoring those people.

At the moment, the content on my blog leans towards what I know best. However, I want it to cover all aspects of computer chess (to some degree). The topics found there will be expanded.

If anyone sees factual errors or could provide additional information, feel free to pm me. From that point, we can communicate via pm or email.

Adam

I will make some adjustments.

Good initiative Adam, and good luck! :D

I might have to lose the background, though I don't want to.

Thanks, Julien.

Nice job. Your Also-ran rating list appears to be a picture thus can't be searched to see if an engine of interest is included. I'd suggest making anything of any length text or HTML so it can be searched.

I was lazy when I did that. Normal text loses its formatting if you copy and paste, and I have not taken time to learn how to format it with html, as of yet. However, you have pointed out a very good reason for me to learn how.

Thanks,
Adam
