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!

Pawn flank attacks 

This patch tweaks some pawn values to favor flank attacks. 

The first part of the patch increases the midgame psqt values of external pawns to launch more attacks (credits to user GuardianRM for this idea), while the second part increases the endgame connection values for pawns on upper ranks.
