Am I the only one seeing this? I never saw it before.
I got the same thing, but later I got an email from chatwing with the needed verification code.
Finally, I entrered that code, and the problem disappeared...
(...more or less, because I then still received about a dozen emails with verification codes!). Strange Chatwing initiative!!!

BTW, Dann, you never answered me about the possibility of generating a non-NUMA compile of Cfish.
Sorry, I did not see your message.

Why do you want a non-NUMA version? I expect the NUMA version to play about as well on an integrated SMP core as a non-NUMA version.

The NUMA code does no harm on a non-NUMA machine, except that on Linux a NUMA binary won't work unless libnuma is installed.

Because, as I reported to you,
On my main computer which I use for chess, old dualcore E6600 with Win XP Pro x64, I immediately got the error message:
The procedure entry point VirtualAllocExNuma could not be located in the dynamic link library Kernel32.dll

Of course, it is a wild try (or wild idea), but one never knows!

There is nothing to fix really.
You have a parameter in your make file for NUMA (y/n)
I changed it to no, did a build, and mailed him a new binary.

On the TCEC live page, Chatwing chat is gone, having been replaced by Twitch chat. Chat accounts now have to undergo email verification. The live page is now a little glitchy, and it will probably take a bit of time for the TCEC guys to sort out the bugs.

Hopefully this effort to reduce chat spam works.

https://www.twitch.tv/tcecpoc is the streaming page. They said they will start doing streams.

NUMA compiles should now work for you (but won't support NUMA because XP does not support it).
