Re: TR 3

Looks like it's legal in more places than I thought: https://disa.com/map-of-marijuana-legality-by-state I don't ...

Re: TR 3

The power company is already sending me notices and graphs showing me what a power hog I am. Look! You're using twice as much electricity as your neighbors! Would you like us to help you learn how to conserve energy? :shock: tell them it's for some scientific distributed computing project. Don't te...

Re: It's here ...Honey X6

If you are using my version, I turn off every form of contempt by default. You can turn it back on with the UCI options. I turn it off because I use chess engines for analysis and rarely for game play. And when I play them, the contempt is not important anyway. And when I analyze, I want the right ...

Re: What was the last good Stockfish?

Thanks maxdeg, it remains a mystery that the settings were added back and then removed again. Anyway, compiling is such a hassle that I think that'd be the end of the line for me. Providing a service like abrok to get compiles was greatly appreciated, while it lasted. You have mail .. :D :mrgreen:

Re: Draws are getting cheaper, are 15W enough?

Does anyone run correspondence or freestyle events with rules designed to avoid or minimize draws, such as specified one-sided openings or startpositions, or modifications of the normal draw rules, or anything else? It seems that attempts to do something about draws should start with correspondence...
