Can I take a guess?

Seriously, it's time to make the announcement. Both Larry and I have worked with Mark Lefler before on other projects and find him to be very compatible with us. So we have decided that he will be working with us.

He has always been generous with requests, answering questions and is the primary founder of the chessprogramming wiki. From time to time over the years we have experimented and shared ideas together. So we are very happy to announce that he will be joining our team!

Mark will do fine, if you keep him under control. I've known him for a LONG time. We had lots of conversations at ACM events. I even voted his engine "most obnoxious" one year, because of the sound effects. His apple was producing "orchestral fanfare" when giving check and such. :) If you don't let him access the sound card, I can easily deal with him. :)
What do you mean :!: :?:

Do they have to tie him up while programming or something :lol: :?:

We have him locked in a room writing code for us. We feed him 3 times a day and hose him down once a week.
Capital punishment would be more effective as a preventive measure if it were administered prior to the crime.

This doesn't look very efficient to me, because the reward is not proportionate to the work. May I suggest an improvement ? A potato per Elo point gained. All of a sudden you'll see Komodo's progress skyrocketing.
