I'm sure she will grow up to be a queen :)

Congrats Larry!

Congratulations!

We patiently await her first words. Will they be in English, C++ or UCI? Furthermore will she be a 1.d4 player, 1.e4 player (not everyone has taste) or a 1.b3 player following in the footsteps of GM (Christian) Bauer?

Jokes aside, I wish your entire family all the best! I am sure you will be as kind and successful as a grandfather, as you have been as a chess programmer.

My most sincere congratulations, also in the name of the chess people of Sardinia. This second title looks decidedly more important than the first!

A Pawn can become a Queen, as you undoubtedly know. Congratulations!

I love being a grandfather, and I know you'll enjoy being with your grandchild as much as I enjoy mine, Larry. Congratulations!
