If you don't keep source code, that's disorderly.
If you go around barefoot in a corporate setting, that's disorderly.
If you wear white socks with your sandals, that's disorderly.
If your natural inclination when out of the public view is to go completely to seed, that's disorderly.
If you have a lot to drink with the above characteristics, that's drunk and disorderly. (Not that I have seen any evidence of that!)
Have a sense of humor. I like Vas, no doubt about it, but I also recognize that in his case one has to make allowances. All I was doing was pointing out things that are indicative of his personality.
But I have to say "anarcho-capitalism" sounds way more appealing to me than "scientific socialism".
The way things are going you may have a great environment for agitation and propaganda over the next few years. By the way, have you seen the movie "The Trotsky"?
Not sure what to make of that, a rational mind that has somehow contracted a complete and totally irrational perspective maybe?
"Vas is in strong need of a spin doctor who can remind us that he is one of those computer geniuses whose talent, curiosity, inventiveness and charisma falls victim to mundane protocol. The whole story is another timely case of the triumph of "process" over "content". If we look at content (rather than process), its clear that the Rybka series represents a giant leap forward in the level of computer chess. A pity this fact now is obstructed by some technical details of how the implementation of the general ideas were carried out."
Let one of your works be usurped by another along with the accompanying acknowledgment and accolades. And while you sit this smoldering over how someone has "ripped off your work", remember what you wrote today and let that be your comfort.
Another professor of mine once came beaming to a lecture. He just received on of the highest recommendations one can achieve: He discovered that someone had stolen a book he wrote from the library!
But that doesn't make it "right". Doesn’t mean we have to “accept” or tolerate it.
I think you had every right to be "chocked" as you put it. Maybe in a sense it is a compliment. But a thief who steals my plasma tv... I'm not going to take it as a compliment as he's walking out the door with it ("wow dude... what a good taste in plasma tv's you have...").
You sure this is how you feel when there are more "chips in the pot"... what if it could mean tenure (is that possible?)... or a "Nobel" (I guess it would be the "Fields Medal"... not Nobel).
"In the end one gets the credit that is due."
Well I would most certainly pray this would be the case for your work.

That's great! This is going in my list of humorous quotes/remarks!
The press loves controversy. When the Rybka Cluster is officially released - I think Vas should go to town with his new bad boy artist Vas image.
Once he has the podium - and articulates how he works in his creative process (no one, by the way, need really try to understand that one anyhow- He's an Artist! )and what his goals are. ( )
I think the ICGA- its vigilante supporters with their narrow minded unimaginative- amateurish and idealistic definitions of originality, along with their contrived notions of uniqueness-(no matter how crafty they may think themselves)-which makes their end products anything but outstanding and mostly differently the same. Not to forget to mention those that are now cheating by taking from clones, and lest we also forget the few rival commercial chess engines that stand to benefit from his being sanctioned- why Vas while he is in the spot light could make hay while the sun shines-even if it is a cloudy day!
Vas should wear Che Guevara T, sandals, and above all , don't let Vas shave. He is our Andy Warhol of Chess engine computer programming.
[edit-to round it all out ]
The mid and late 60's the underground movements gained momentum and identity- before rising to the surface of the mainstream. It was always just a matter of time before any movement was ingested by capitalism and spit out in the form of a fad. As long as the movement didn't lose its identity in the process- it progressed and was able to use the system to its advantage. Some were too radical for even corporations to turn a buck- those would be given over to the FBI and listed under Un-American activities.
Vas will fit the above referenced mold-
Ippolit has hobbled itself and is fighting against itself- with no real outlet into the mainstream. They continue to evolve replications of associate Immortal forums-but their philosophy and values remain restrictively the same with little change in attitude-very self serving and from what I can see is going no where.
> well, I find they are both against Kleptocracy so I support both for that reason only. I never looked at/played with their programs at all - it's just the implied politics that appeals.
Wiki Ippolit forum may not support Kleptocracy, a great many of their associated forums give a warning but continue to allow members to practice providing links to pirated software-in some cases it is to a great extent a sign of the times and not limited to them in particular. But Ippolit cannot afford be a part of this particular aspect of the sign of the times. But that to my way of thinking is only one thing holding them back. This us against them thing isn't working as and end result only isolates them even more.
> I want my R5 to be crafty with a fruity aftertaste!
In order to bring you the most rewarding gaming experience Rajlich LTD removed all artificial ingredients from the base of its code inventory that was inadvertently left from earlier development and research -serving no bases for adding any enhancements to Rybka’s already par excellence in gaming performance.
Rajlich LTD is not responsible for any aftertaste experienced - since this product was not meant for physical consumption-
Consumption of this product can lead to the contraction of HYATT'S SYNDROME ! symptomatic of delirium and signs of dementia -where Crafty is seen everywhere, and the taste of Fruit never leaves the senses.
Thank you for your interest in Rybka.
But "just playing by the rules" would not even be enough to beat micro-Max. You would have to do a lot better than that...
