Re: BBC GUI release - PLAY IT ONLINE!

The name of your program makes me think of the British Broadcasting Company (BBC). Exactly, it's intended for youtube purposes - if peoaple search for BBC (British Broadcasting Company) they would probably find my engine as well. May be one day I will monetize my work via ads. A certain irony in th...

Re: Final Release of Ethereal, V12.75

I would argue that the GPL license is not as much a protection for the software vendors as it is for the software recipients. GPL programs can freely copy from other GPL programs without any fear of license violation as long as their code remains GPL. Common decency would include attribution, of co...

Re: Final Release of Ethereal, V12.75

SF doesn't have a closed team of developers. Dozens of people have contributed to it, and the NNUE authors are among them. Perhaps we have a different understanding of what that means. Apparently we have, even though what I wrote is not very complex. I guess in your view 99% of Stockfish is not an ...

Re: Final Release of Ethereal, V12.75

What a drama queen. I know this is going to make me sound singularly unsympathetic in this thread filled with messages of " please don't go! ", but I really don't feel terribly sympathetic to all this grandstanding. Look, stop trying to impose your values and your views of how to program a chess en...

Re: Final Release of Ethereal, V12.75

"Congrats to Stockfish for the incredible achievement. My middle finger to everyone else using it." I think I tried hard to explain in many places why NNUE is not Minic official evaluation, how it is a copy/paste of code and technology, and how it is just an experiment for me do dig into the NN wor...

Re: Final Release of Ethereal, V12.75

An hour after I make this post I'm filled with regret. [1] Do people really want to see a bunch of NNUE engines, all running the same evaluation function, occupying the top slots of computer chess? [2] Would people really find it interesting to have Ethereal use whatever "best" network is out there...

Re: A Crossroad in Computer Chess; Or Desperate Flailing for Relevance

Could you please explain it to me then? If I'm missing crucial information, I'm perfectly happy to change my view when presented with additional information which brings my current view into question. I’m happy to explain things to someone who listens and discusses in good faith. Your posts here an...
