Re: Stockfish Polyglot now violates the GPL

Did you ask for the source and were refused? GPL doesn't require source to be published on the web, just provided on request. GPL 3.0 section 6d requires that if you allow the executable code to be downloaded then the source code must be available in a similar manner and there must be clear directi...

Re: Stockfish Polyglot now violates the GPL

I'd call this making a mountain out of a molehill. So the source was requested and never given. What is the GPL good for? If you wanted to make a point about GPL being irrelevant, you would do much better to point out the actual violations associate with Stockfish Polyglot rather than a non-existen...

Re: New computer chess forum

For Bob and me I added a few statements in the JavaScript post-processor that I put in some forum sections to display FENs as diagrams, which do convert our aliases to our real names after the pages get loaded. Ah, that would explain why I see your name change from hgm to H.G.Muller as a page is lo...

Re: Insults from a member in pm ... Why ?

I just receive insulting message from "Daniel Kemmer / SheikhYerbouti" ... I don't understand why ? Have I said something wrong here ? I have had a few personal messages (mostly in other forums) where I highly suspect alcohol was involved. In electronic communications in any open forum, such intera...

Re: CCRL adapted TC to current hardware

It seems I missed this change or was it reported before? 40/40 => 40/15 and 40/4 => 40/2 (The links itself are not yet changed though) This reflects more the real tc played on newer hardware - I would still welcome adding the real tc always in the pgn header and not just the generic one, at least f...

Re: CCRL adapted TC to current hardware

Thanks for the explanations, both of you. ... My understanding is that CCRL is sticking to the old repeating time control (which at equal total time used leads to lower quality compared to standard increment, ... I see it exactly the opposite, usually inc games lead to low quality in the endgame, o...

Re: N.E.G. 1.0 released

I uploaded a fixed version (1.3) to the same link (souce & Windows .exe). It now also tests for r, b or n suffix on the input move, and performs the indicated promotion if it finds one. Hi H.G. The executable found on the download page is misnamed NEG1_2 though a text editor shows that it refers to...

Re: Run LC Zero in LittleBlitzerGUI

The amount of memory for hashing is the resource Exactly like the presence of a GPU ;). For a rating list where multiple people contribute games, the GPU would be a complication in determining a reference point. However, in the case of a single tester/computer, I fail to see why the GPU should be t...
