chessmosaic.com down?

The site seems to have disappeared. Something about a suspended account. It was a useful place to get logos and quick basic info on most engines. :(

Re: Trying out the Leela Hybrid engine (NN with AB)

Thanks for your fine effort, KillerDucky. It looks very promising! :D

I'm just curious - should the default FpuReduction and CPuct settings be used with the opencl version, or do you recommend anything better?

Thanks again!

Re: Lc0 and future of rating lists

It is certainly difficult for an equal hardware list, where equality is based on CPU benchmarks. SSDF is in the best position, they have engines listed running on different hardware already. No issues for them at all. Is it totally correct to think of CCRL as equal hardware where you have 1, 2 and ...
