Of course. But Thorsten started the thread and it is not too much to expect him to post the link.

Thorsten had posted before about the Millennium. I thought someone posted before that thread that ChessUSA our sponsor had this new chesscomputer in stock, but I don't see it at their site so I probably am mistaken. They do have some nice DGT boards, but they are still very expensive and don't really count as chesscomputers. Only three real dedicated models for sale there.

place. Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you
are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it.

It's basically the chess app genius for mobile phone/tablet on a dedicated chess computer from millennium (ossi weiner).

The computer is without LED but has a display and shows board position, moves and evaluation, search depth.

It is a CPU with 48 MHz.
This is more then the 5 MHz we had for the 8 bit machines but of course our mobiles and tablets with 1000-2.300 MHz have more horse power.

The dedicated chess computer companies went bankrupt.

This is the new beginning of the rest of Mephisto H+G.

Millennium is Ossi Weiner and Mr.Hegener.

I guess they will sell it world wide.

Don't worry. You will get this machine.

I have sent our gracious hosts a note that I will buy it from them as soon as they offer it for sale. It's the least we can do for their support.
