Re: PCI express 4

PCI Express 4 affects everything that uses that interface.
The new AMD 7nm stuff is specifically designed to support it.

Re: statistics about mates from tablebases

This is how I found them:

Code: Select all

select * from Epd a, Epd b 
where  a.Epd LIKE '% w %' 
AND b.Epd LIKE '% b %' 
AND LEFT(a.Epd, CHARINDEX(' w ', a.Epd) - 1) = LEFT(b.Epd, CHARINDEX(' b ', b.Epd) - 1) 
and a.dm = b.dm

Re: How to cut these pgn games.

You need a trailing asterisk in the PGN body text after trimming.
Seems like you are simply looking for a named opening db.

Maybe you want something like this:
