Congratulations everyone. Here's to many more decades.

Re: OT: Full Removal of Windows 10

The same extra undeletable partition is also being created under windows 7 and 8 depending on BIOS settings for controlling hard drives. Apparently Macs are not immune from this practice.

Re: Stockfish on AMD K6-III

I think having 256 meg total memory is the reason for crushes.
Very little left after windows XP loads.

But I am happy with v1.4, has more then enough strength.

Thanks again

In case any one is wondering, after downloading every 32bit compile of Stockfish v1.4 is running stabile under Arena. Can't go any higher.

All the best

Re: Stockfish on AMD K6-III

Thank you for responding Tony.

None of the latest compiles work. As far back as v2 is instant crush. I went all the way back to 1.91 legacy. It still crushes after a few moves. Using Arena. This is very old cpu and also the laptop has 256 MB ram.
