Tournaments that do not publish gam

Post by Dann Corbit » Tue Jul 09, 2019 9:24 am

If a tree falls in the forest, with no ear to hear it, does it make a noise?
If a tournament happens with no games to happen, what can we make of that?
We cannot verify that the games really happened,
We cannot find interesting new novelties,
We cannot tell what really happened.

It is like publishing a single number,
Fire 7.1 wins by 10!

It means nothing.

There are free hosting services.
Google drive is 10GB free, and if you compress the data, that is a lot of games,
I'm just sayin...
Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.
