Re: New data

Thanks a lot! Putting files on your web site is fine. Another possibility ist saving as *.csv and pasting here. :D That looks like hell. Already tried it. :) I don't know why Microsoft is so damned enamoured with the <tab> character, but using it as a separator just doesn't work. Yes, that's why I ...

Re: What's Vasik Rajlich doing today?

Perhaps another definition of SMP efficiency would be better in this case: 1 core: engine has a base Elo at time control y (without permanent brain to make testing easier - the quality of the permanent brain doesn't contribute) n core: engine gets an Elo base+x at time control y Now what time factor...
