Re: Combine with other sellout sports

I'm afraid, the GM's would be bombarded with beer cans (don't know whether they are allowed there), bottles and other objects! :lol: I must admit, that i too would prefer "some female showing a silicone body part" during a football game :wink: Robert Nothing against some female showing body parts, ...

Re: Sports and spectators

Truth is that chess is acceptable and even a passion as much as one play it. As a show, it's boring to death. At leat me I have never been capable of looking at other guys games without a yawn. Looking at games in books, the current championship, etc? No way.... I include in this boring stuff to st...

Re: What opening would you like to see and why?

What opening would you like to see played in the next Wch 2008 game between Anand and Kramnik and why? Remember Anand will have the White pieces again in their next game. Okay, I'll go first and say I would like to see a Evans Gambit, why because we should see a nice attacking game that I don't thi...

Re: Boris

Speaking only for myself the answer is easy: when I bought that dedicated unit in the early 80s, it was said to be a little better than your ratings show (don't know which modules it had) and at that time it was a sensation for a machine playing chess, nevertheless I bought it in a toy shop, not in ...

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.
