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!

Chess engine TuxedoCat 0.0.1 (Winboard protocol)


TuxedoCat is a chess engine. I am developing it as a hobby; it isn't crazy awesome like Crafty or Stockfish. The main purpose is simply the entertainment value of creating a moderately complex system which does something more or less impressive. TuxedoCat is compatible with version 2 of the Winboard protocol.

Technical Goals

TuxedoCat is written in C++. The intention is to stick with standard C++ as much as possible to facilitate portability. Simplicity and readability are also priorities, hence there are no classes or other object-oriented programming overhead.
