Re: When should the WCH be postponed to?

university will keep me quite busy next semester so for me to be able to afford the time to take part it would have to be during winter break, i.e. in the week before or after new year's.

Re: Linux-Friendly Clones

are there any experienced sweepers who have some free time on their hands and are willing to define a procedure for accepting a new clone and a list of requirements for a clone to be accepted as an official verison? now that clone is gone there might be room for freesweeper to take clone's place.

Re: The Clone must go

Re: Arbiter development

lol, i still have 48.5 on my laptop. i was able to reproduce this bug.

it is indeed a bug, but from what i can see not a critical one. it is clearly visible from the replays, that something is not correct. since december 2012 all new records need to be watched and approved by 3 admins.

1 mine or 2 mines? what are the odds?

dayan showed me this pattern today and asked what the chances are, that the correct solution for it has 1 mine and respectively for 2 mines. my first instinct was that it could be easily solved by just counting the mines. but let us ignore this case for the moment. assume that we are either playing ...
