Fixed two nasty bugs in the rgpsp protocol (the remote gPS polling), version 0.10.2 is out.


I spent the weekend coding eboard, after some weird GtkText behaviour I spent the last night modifying xchat's xtext widget to display ICS output -- a little line wrapping oddity still remains but it looks good. This week I'll hopefully focus on writing the chess-related code and have an interface capable of playing a regular chess game on FICS by friday. :)

Someone posted an entry recently about getting the Crafty chess engine to run in a MOSIX cluster and was searching for strong players to try with. The FICS (Free Internet Chess Server) provides computer accounts, so that you can login with a chess program and get it pplaying with either other computers or human players. Notice 1: one of the fics boxes (particularly the one that is the web server) is down again this week, the link above will probably only work again by the end of the week or even next week. Notice 2: the Free in FICS is for free beer, not free as in freedom. Notice 3: to reach FICS while the web server is down, telnet to freechess.org, port 5000, login as guest user.

Meanwhile... still looking for a job, preferrably one I don't have to see Windows again.
