    Folding@Home is working again. The chess.ca team is currently ranked #30034 in the world (out of 246,891 teams). https://stats.foldingathome.org/team/240530

    I could probably use a bit of help...

    I gave up on Folding@Home as the program was almost completely unable to communicate with their servers. I switched to Rosetta@Home which is attacking the same problem from a different angle but is...
  3. Folding@Home trying to help with COVID-19

    The Folding@Home service has started helping with research into COVID-19. They are also aiming for a million people helping with folding.

    I've taken the liberty of creating a Chess Federation of...

    Why not take one section per month, post it in the VM forum and let people first of all point out anything that doesn't align with modern laws or anything else that now binds the CFC, and secondly...

    I think it's telling that both the website and computer equipment are completely written off (and the site was 3 years ago). Both obviously need replacing.

    Everything else seems pretty stable to...

    Do we not know where the files are? Knowing the size would help with coming up with sharing ideas.
  7. I feel this doubly, as I don't have a strong...

    I feel this doubly, as I don't have a strong party affiliation. A majority of my votes since turning 18 have been Liberal, but I think that's more because of them being centrist than me particularly...

    I've been sad to see the increased partisanship and loss of constructive opposition. It seemed to start in the USA but it's definitely spread to Canada.

    IIRC National Chess Week never even got to the point of asking for volunteers, it never really got past bickering over what dates would/wouldn't work for people. I haven't thought about it much as to...

    I'd use it to switch the Closed and Women's Closed to a proper invitational round robin if you want to develop the higher levels. Maybe run the Junior at the same time.

    To develop chess as a...

    How many played in the Canadian Open without a membership?

    Just a general thought, with 8 hours left in the voting period... 37 members of the incoming assembly have signed in, but only 23-24 of them have voted on anything which is a little disappointing,...

    Larry was offering 2-year-old (one version number) versions of Fritz for a big discount earlier, you could contact him to see if he has any left. Alternatively, Fritz 15 (the current version is 16)...

    This is exactly right. The more that the Canadian "bubble" interacts with the rest of the FIDE rating pool, the more accurate the ratings will be.

    I do wonder if the increase in the number of...

    Very few 14-year-olds would have that kind of opening knowledge without also being quite strong otherwise. I guess the interesting argument would be, would a weak master-level player of today be able...

    I wasn't asking for one to step forward, I was lamenting the state of the FIDE elections for at least the last 10 years, maybe longer.

    My only comment at this point is why is it too much to ask for a candidate who doesn't have baggage or a major flaw? This is not some little tiny operation, this is a major international sporting...

    Figures, the limit was 5,000,000 for PDFs. I upped it to 10M.

    CFC Elections 2018

    Who's running? Will there be any actual votes this year?

    I'm willing to be on the NAC again (I notice the CFC site was never updated from last year's AGM - oops? http://chess.ca/cfc-committees )....

    I can fix it, what type of file is it? By default it only allows small files to be attached but those defaults are from ancient times with tiny hard drives.

    I find the biggest advantage of the Scandinavian at club level is that not everyone is very familiar with it and while I may lose time on the board, on the clocks it tends to be a big advantage. The...

    Either that or you have a mortgage or some other investment? I know with RBC having a mortgage and a TFSA with them means no monthly service fee on the chequing account. Doesn't seem to matter how...

    Well, I was referring to Chesstalk needing an off-topic lounge. Would it help here? I think you'd need more on-topic first lol.


    Fred's posts were probably best as a blog rather than forum posts.
