Re: We are past the stage where the OS has become the virus

Don't put the chess computers/PCs to the internet. Do internet with another machine.

Re: Is Talkchess still the centre of computer chess programming?

IMO talkchess is as dead as css forum.

Here strange new engines appear. The programmers do not tell us why their engines appear.

Re: Sargon Android

The spracklens did their engine for fidelity and later for saitek.

Using 6502 in all kind of mhz and later 68000 and 68020 and even 68040 and other heavy motorola machinery.

Under saitek they began again on a sparc cpu and it had a rating of 2200 elo.

Then they stopped doing computerchess.
