Re: Junior 11

I don't think that Junior 11 will require ICC membership to purchase it. I expect that it will be offered to anybody, by ICC's online store. Anything else would not make sense. Why should an online shop limit the range of it's customers to the members of it's server? I am not 100% sure but that is ...

Re: Junior 11

It is about a month ago, since it was to be read Junior 11 would be sold soon after the match against Illescas. Does anybody know anything new about it? Thanks! ...Peter. Only very few people have an interest in the ICC nonsense. I hope Ban and Amir shall do this thing right some time in future. Ma...

Re: What is a Good Price for Rybka 3.0 multiple processor?

Peter, A small resin dental filling costs about $110.00 here in the USA. Electricians charge over $100.00 per hour for their work. I don't think that Vas Rajlich is overpaid for his labors. We once paid $150.00 for chess programs and upwards of $10,000.00 for stand-alone chess playing machines. Car...

Re: What is a Good Price for Rybka 3.0 multiple processor?

With a 70% increase in search speed with the Vista 64bit version and even more speed with multiple core usage, do you think that Rybka 3.0 should be priced higher or should we keep it low and sell 10X as many programs? TJ Why do you think, you'd sell 10x as many for a difference like this? ...Peter.

Re: Zappa Singular Extensions

Has anyone tested Zappa Mexico with SE (singular extensions) turned on? At the CB site, the description by Cozzie says: Both versions come with an implementation of Singular Extensions, the famous Deep Blue search algorithm. They are disabled by default, but they increase the tactical strength of t...

Re: Dead End for Computer Chess? Some ideas...

I posted this on the Rybka forum. These are some honest thoughts of mine. I'm posting here for the purpose of discussion... We may be at a dead end for computer chess. Consider this... Take the chess playing abilities of the top computer chess programs (Rybka on down). Is this level of play good, o...
