Re: planned weekly komodo vs human series on chess.com

Thanks you very much Larry. I appreciate the attention and deference you have with me; Being very close to reaching sixty years of age, we discovered the scope of that proverb that teaches: "Vanity of vanities and everything is vanity."

Re: AMD RYZEN 2950 Speed issue

Now I get the following speed. Is it normal? I somehow feel that the speed gain should be more than 8k. Do you realize you have 16 physical cores? You can'r run 2x faster with hyperthreading. ~1.3x is normal. With Intel hyperthreading you get ~1.3 x the performance. Although I never tried I have a ...

Re: Super bullet chess: LC0 network 31510 vs Fire 7.1

When I go back to the installation sectio...

Re: OT: Rise of GandCrab virus

your backups might not be safe,
