Re: Chess and Cognac

The site seems to be taken down. Hope everything is alright with Brendan. Hey mate, thanks for your concern, I'm fine. I recently received the hosting bill for my website, and despite it not being very expensive, whilst on the hosting payment page I had a thought: "Do I REALLY want to keep this thi...

Re: Can nobody compile Roden IV

Right Brendan, Its a pitty because of your GREAT engine personalties you composed!! But Rodent IV is MUCH better than Rodent III because you can chose the personality AND set the elo strengh! Because of this you can create a Karpov Personality that plays at full strengh - or set the elo to elo 1800...

Well, if someone offered the Komodo team $10,000 in exchange for all incoming Komodo versions and updates I'm sure they'd gladly accept the deal! :mrgreen: The point I'm trying to make is that this increasingly common perception that it is somehow immoral to be paid for your labor is false, as long...
