|Jul-24-15|| ||whiteshark: <relative value of chess pieces> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chess_...|
|Jul-24-15|| ||parisattack: Interesting...thanks for posting.
I wonder how Berliner arrived at his evaluations?
Some extra for the synergy of 2Bs?
|Jul-25-15|| ||whiteshark: <parisattack: I wonder how Berliner arrived at his evaluations?>|
In the intro of chapter 1 he wrote:
"This description of [values of /ws] advantages is based on:
a) 30 years of top US over-the board chess play;
b) The most outstanding record in world-class correspondence chess
c) Extensive experience in implementing these ideas for computer
<Some extra for the synergy of 2Bs?> There is no explicit mention of it in the book.
When reading over this chapter you get an idea of how dynamic these (relative) values are, always depending on the specific circumstances.

From the moment an account is created, Microsoft begins watching. The company saves customers’ basic information—name, contact details, passwords, demographic data and credit card specifics —but it also digs a bit deeper.
Other information Microsoft saves includes Bing search queries and conversations with the new digital personal assistant Cortana; contents of private communications such as email; websites and apps visited (including features accessed and length of time used); <and contents of private folders. Furthermore, “your typed and handwritten words are collected,” the Privacy Statement says, which many online observers liken to a keylogger. Microsoft says they collect the information “to provide you a personalized user dictionary, help you type and write on your device with better character recognition, and provide you with text suggestions as you type or write.”>

|Aug-22-15|| ||jerseybob: Whiteshark: Where do you get the typewriter characters for the eyes? Are those umlauts from a German or Scandanavian typewriter? <(°!°)>|
|Aug-22-15|| ||whiteshark: <WinKing> Thanks for the reminder|
<jerseybob> I've no idea - it's on my keyboard as additional character, probably the 'degree sign'.
There are also similar signs/symbols in unicode (hex) with < 25E6, Alt-C > or < 25CB, Alt-C >
If that doesn't help, please ask <WannaBe> ;)
|Aug-22-15|| ||whiteshark: now that you said it I'm not so sure myself anymore (°!°)'j|
