on my chess site world+dog all know i have torrents

one advantage of torrents is that they are able to spot errors, emule cannot do that

this way if a copy is bad, it can be noticed and replaced

over on the facebook group I created for computer chess, I post remarks on transfer cap etc. Seems to be a suitable as a blog.

I have to cap as my ISP will start jacking up my bill like mad if I didn't.

There is a link on the top right of that page to my chess site if you want EGTB, up to 6 pieces complete.

I am seeding from Canada, a friend is seeding from Australia and one person from Switzerland is working on 42 but I do not know who that is so I cannot see if he plans to seed as well.

you can still come on-board as a seed if you already have 5 pieces or more. Simply save the torrent to your chess downloads and then open it with ctrl-d from inside utorrent and select your EGTB folder as the save directory. The after a check the seeding will start. You can even share from under your chess program folder, does not matter where.

EGTB are public domain, feel free to share widely.

created a facebook page, this will be perfect as a blog for news and information.

simply like the page and news will automatically surface on your wall.

this will give my chess site easy bolt on blog and forum. Blah.

with the new 5 piece download the cap is going to be hit faster, at least until more seeds accumulate

Add a German to the pile and the torrents are now slowly gaining speed.
Parent - - By Vegan (****) Date 2012-03-17 13:17
add switzerland, united arab emirates, and slowly the torrents are growing to become genuinely global

Now adding india for grabbing 5 pieces, thankfully there are 2 seeds for his downloading pleasure

5 pieces are small, so what not share the set so that everyone can use them with their favorite GUI

looks like the second seed for 33 is nearly complete but 42 is still a fair way to go

obviously the 33p and 42p will take a while to complete so I will be leaving my server up for as long as I can afford to

Just started downloading 33 from another site. MD5s seems to be same, ETA 1.5 days.

the torrents are more error tolerant, emule cannot do that
Parent - - By Pia (****) Date 2012-03-31 11:51
Who said emule? I'm joined seeding with 33 & 42.
As for tbs with pawns, I have weeks of movies and anime to watch first :wink:

you might want to join facebook so the news I post on my chess page can be sent to you when news is released, say once a week or two
Parent - - By Vegan (****) Date 2012-03-31 20:27
can you also seed 5 pieces as well?
Parent - - By Pia (****) Date 2012-04-07 10:17
Great. I have 5-piece TB which I generated myself back in 2007 using tbgen.exe
and it just took a little Excel help to rename files to see that they are identical with your torrent.
So, I'm with fives seeding now, too.
Parent - By Vegan (****) Date 2012-04-07 14:32
thanks, all of the torrents I posted are from the original distribution

given the popularity of 5 pieces, having lots of seeds means the next user can grab them real fast
Parent - - By Gambit-man (**) Date 2012-04-08 00:20
for those interested in Gaviota tbs, there's someone seeded what he calls a full set on demonoid

I doubt there is much demand for them, the Nalimov EGTB have no license to worry about
