George was a very honest man. May his soul RIP.
My engine was quite strong till I added knowledge to it.

George added, then, his passing, to several friends of all of us that have died in the last two or three years.
Linda has this mail address for anyone here that would like to send her a word or two:

linpsp8@yahoo.com

I still do not have more details, but as soon as I get them I will let you know.

Very sorry to hear this, although not surprised. When someone is forced by health reasons to give up a passion such as computer chess, it usually means he hasn't much more time. Anyway I appreciated the testing George did of Komodo before his health forced him to quit. George was quite stubborn but a good and honest man.
Komodo rules!
