Nothing that serious. I am just not "burning" that much for computer chess as some years ago and became a bit anoyed about justifying a free service.

I continue with testing (maybe a little less and more relexed regarding the piciked engines), I will just focus on my and a few friends fun and might do some beta testing from time to time (in case someone is asking).

Thanks for your time Ingo. Much appreciated.
Maybe you could post your results at least once a month or so and make most of us happy.

Very best to you,
Gerold.

P.S. Most people who enjoy your testing don/t always post about your testing. We are here and enjoy your testing.

Hi Ingo, sorry it's become less fun! Thanks for all the testing, the matches were always super fun to watch. Hope we see the return of IPON at some point :).

I feel that relaxed mindset about hobbies is essential for avoiding burnout. I hope you'll recover enthusiasm after some rest.

(BTW I don't have trouble justifying my free services - it gives as much or more enjoyment to me as to the others.)

Best,
Kirill

I know all about having to justify a free service. Thanks for your efforts Ingo, maybe we will see your list back again sometime in the future.
I'm having trouble justifying a non-free service :-)

I've seen it but now.
It's a loss for our section.
Hopefully the IPON is back soon !

But fortunately there is another "ponder=on" list:

I've been meaning to ask... the last games update though, is still from one year ago, right?
