Komodo credit

Post by Don » Fri Jan 22, 2010 5:19 pm

One thing I have not taken the time to do yet is to thank some of the volunteers who have been helping us with Komodo. They most definitely deserve some credit.

In no particular order and not including the general comments and help directly from the talk-chess forum and the rating agencies, there are 2 testers who have volunteered some time and CPU resources.

Djordje Vidanovic is one of those people, and he runs tests against various strong programs to keep us apprised of where we stand.

Roy Brunjes also has dedicated much CPU time to helping us evaluate the program and continuously runs longer, very controlled tests using 2 or 3 of the strongest available testing partners we have available to us.

Thorsten Czub also reports results on a regular basis to us, based on testing he does in private.

Also, Salvo Spitaleri has offered to help us with the opening book and is probably getting pretty frustrated waiting for us to get this project started, be we have not forgotten him!

Of course we also have Jim Ablett who has been a valuable resource to the entire computer chess community as has been many of you.
