Sep-03-04  Knight13: What is the name of this computer?
Mar-04-05  Lipsome: "computer"
Mar-04-05  csmath: The last time this "Computer" has been seen around was in 1999. LOL.
Mar-04-05  THE pawn: What an original name!
Mar-16-07  aazqua: I think this computer was the ISUCK 380.
Mar-16-07  Whitehat1963: I think it has a lot of "vacuum" tubes! All right, it's obviously getting late on the East Coast!
Mar-17-07  karnak64: Wasn't "Computer" the computer's name on "Star Trek"? But I'm sure that one was a better player.
May-19-07  sentriclelaw: Guys you cant criticize the computer. Look at the year. I do remember hearing that this computer program did beat a handful of grandmasters before Kasparov beat him.
May-19-07  Sydro: Nice attack by Garry. Too bad he missed 18.Qg4+ which would have sent the computer to the junkyard.
Jun-10-07  jokerman: 18. Qg4+ Kh8 19) Qf5 are that the moves? or what sydro? i can't see what he missed??
Jun-10-07  gandu: for instance:
18.Qh5-g4+ Kg7-h8 19.Qg4-f5 Qe7xf6 20.Qf5xf6+ Kh8-g8 21.Qf6xd8+ Bb4-f8 22.Qd8xd5 Nb8-c6 23.Qd5xc6 Ra8-c8 24.Qc6xa6 (just to be kind!)

Not this one for sure... The first GM to lose to a computer was Bent Larsen in 1988: Larsen vs Deep Thought, 1988
