its completely unimportant what the rating lists show.
toga 1.3x4 is a lot stronger than toga 1.2.1a.

if the rating lists cannot see this, there is something wrong with their way of testing.

Results should still be relative in most cases despite the hardware used.
Those who are not fortunate enough to have the latest hardware shouldn't feel embarrassed about enjoying their hobby and posting their results.
All power to them! 8-)

It wasn't game in 5 min. Thorsten...if you don't like the slow hardware Thorsten, then kindly donate me a fast machine!

Dont get offended, it is doing around 500 Kilo nodes per second on my three year old computer. I still have a hard time beliving that you had the patience to play 6 of those 60 minute matches, I personally dont like anything slower than a 4m+2s.

I went to bed :D I can handle a game or two, but after that I retire to something else, usually sleep :wink:

i have not been able to set up a tournament where toga1.2.1a and 1.3x4 participates where the new version is not ahead of the old version with at least 2 or 3 points and even more.

its not possible !

maybe something is broken with the way you test (and with the way the elo-list guys test).
