If you travel from Christmas Island to Baker Island you have enough time to celebrate new year twice.

I don't think that improvements in computer chess makes it more attractive. The 'better' they play the less understandable. Perhaps it's like watching a science fiction movie you don't understand at all. Computer Chess gets more and more dehumanized.

I think it will still be quite some time before they achieve the positional understanding of a 2800 chess champion.
