Oct-25-04  Knight13: Chaos!? What a funny name. This computer is old but it plays like a rated 2300 player. Not bad.
May-13-05  Caissanist: It might have looked impressive against other computers, but at the time most human tournament players could still beat Chaos and any other computer program. Just get out of the opening book early, play a solid positional game, and wait for the machine to make mistakes. David Levy called this strategy "do nothing but do it well".

  alexmagnus: <Just get out of the opening book early, play a solid positional game, and wait for the machine to make mistakes> AFAIK back in 1974 there were no opening books in comps yet.

In 1967 the MacHACK VI was the first software to have an opening chess book programmed with it.

  OhioChessFan: <You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.>


Jul-18-19  Nietzowitsch: <OhioChessFan> That should have been my quote.

Thus spoke Zarathustra

"I say unto you: one must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.

I say unto you: you still have chaos in yourselves.

Alas, the time is coming when man will no longer give birth to a star.

Alas, the time of the most despicable man is coming, he that is no longer able to despise himself.

Behold, I show you the last man."
