Re: On the ownership of TakChess

So you can confirm Chris and Thorsten's account of things, that the forum is owned by the members, and that the deal with ChessUSA was that they can host it only as long as the members are satisfied with this arrangement and don't decide to seek other hosting? (Simple question; Yes/No can suffice......

Re: Poll test

I think Chrome caches "deep code" code that's not on the immediate page for speed. Indeed, FireFox does that too. And the problem was that the page links to some JavaScript on my website for substituting the [ d] and [ pgn] BBcodes in postings from before the upgrade by the corresponding diagrams. ...

Re: Ed's e-mail misery

Just answer post http://talkchess.com/forum3/viewtopic.php?p=905800#p905800 What question? The "Why were point 1-4 snipped?"? Because I had already addressed those in the e-mail I just sent before it, of course. I thought that would be obvious. But I had forgotten to address this remaining point th...

Poll test

This is to test whether the poll feature is now repaired.

You might have to refresh your browser cache first! (Shift + Reload in FireFox).

Re: HTTP / PHP problem.

ok. found the problem. The "name.js" calls a function "KludgeInit". This function completely replaces the poll html code and thereby removes any event handlers already attached (especially the event handler attached to the "submit" button). So the "update" value is not properly tagged and thus not ...

Re: On the ownership of TakChess

I think you misunderstand Ed's concern. The TalkChess clone is on a machine to which Ed has root access. So he controls it as much as I do. Ed is not concerned that I would run the show, he is concerned that Quentin would no longer run the show. BTW, Quentin could have root permission to that serve...

Re: On the ownership of TakChess

As I see it, the only thing that needs a blessing is if we would permanently want to move the forum to another host. Which, to succeed, would obviously require Chess U.S.A.'s permission, as they would have to be willing to transfer registration of the talkchess.com domain to 'us'. (Or they might wa...

Re: Distinguish rook and bishop move efficiently

Latency (if it is not extreme) is usually not very important, with out-of-order execution. The 64-byte table would typically be in L1 or L2 cache. Of course packing it into 8 bytes as a packed array of bits, which is essentially what you are doing, requires even less space. It would not work so smoo...
