Blog "Chess Engines Diary" - needs a new laptop for chess engine tests

♔ We use for testing only 2 old laptops:
1. Acer - Intel Core i3-3217U ( 5 years old)
2. Lenovo - Intel Core i7-4710MQ is over 3 years old (He works 24 hours a day)

♕♞ A modern laptop that will be designed only for chess engine tests costs (with software) about $ 1000-1200 (4200-4500 PLN). We will no longer invest private money, and chess engine testing costs are big. That is why we are starting the collection for the purchase of a laptop for testing.

♕ Our blog "Chess Engines Diary" is visited by around 2,000-3.000 users daily. If only everyone paid 1 dollar - we will pay the required amount in one day!

Stockfish 17020601 - new version!

Stockfish, chess engine UCI

Leader rating list JCER = 3406

🔬 Author: Stefano80 

Timestamp: 1486339597 

Simplify scale factor computation 

Minor non-functional simplifications in computing the scale factor. 

In my opinion, the code is now slightly more readable: 
- remove one condition which can never be satisfied. 
- immediately return instead of assigning the sf variable. 

Tested for non-regression: 

LLR: 2.95 (-2.94,2.94) [-3.00,1.00] 
Total: 62162 W: 11166 L: 11115 D: 39881 

No functional change 

Closes #992
