Re: Banned From The Dutch Computer Chess Association

If there is something what can make me more puke when I think about computer chess please let me now.

I more and more like the idea of the programmers only tournaments which are already taking place following an idea of a former moderator of this place.

Re: CEGT/CCRL and the "forbidden" engines.

Whatever the result of this poll is I don't care at all. And I guess other CCRL/CEGT testers think in a similar way.

Everyone is free to create to create a rating list he likes. The only thing to do is the work. Just start. Right now. Creating irrelevant polls does not help at all.

No.

I still use Scid. I think it is great. OTOH I'm no longer willing to fiddle around with programs working more or less.

And yes, I'm willing to pay for software what just does what it should do.

I doubt Shane envisaged huge computer tournaments (with numerous round names) when he coded the thing.
I send him a message using pm. Maybe it's a good idea if someone posts it on the mailing list. I haven't subscibe it.
