My machine is finally back online after a major Linux upgrade. My winmodem turned out to be unsupported under Linux 2.6 kernel. So no email access for about one week until I bought an external modem just yesterday. No GCC hacking during that period (due to no CVS connection). However, I made some significant progress to GRhino. A simple version of GTP driver is finished so that I can now pit two different GRhino AI's and let them battle for, say, 100 games. This allows AI tinkering without guessing whether it would improve AI strength or not.
