    Following reports of an alleged high use of Fritz, the Fritz maker is to charge 5 bucks for each use of Fritz in a game here.

    I highly doubt that the makers of Fritz would enact such a stupid, silly, and unenforceable rule. Next time actually check your sources instead of listening to the whatever gossip you hear at your chess club.

    Edit: Or making up idiotic blatant lies just see what type of reaction you'd get.

    I'm sure Chessbase prefers euros. The dollar's sinking like a rock, ya know.

    I did, but he can't possibly know that I did. It was merely a dribble.

    Actually, I prefer fruit loops. But to be honest, no one. In fact, I wasn't even angry at the time. However, I've never had an angry rant on these forums, and most others (including yourself) have, so I just wanted to try it out.

    It was a good angry rant. Did you enjoy it?

    Edit: I was actually going to say something else but then read your second post

    You reckon? Which is the lower amount? 5 dollars or 5 euros?

    Geez, I reckon it was a joke - You don't have to analyze it to death!

    But if you insist, I never said 5 euros - I simply said euros. And the idea of the joke is that the dollar has been falling recently against the euro, so a German company might prefer a currency that isn't falling off a cliff. But never mind that, did I mention that IT WAS A JOKE? Sheesh....

    Out of curiosity can anyone find a game where a GM like Fischer or Kasparov matched Fritz 100%?

    and then again - could i not patent NF3, say, and then the makers
    of fritz would have to pay me a 5p royalty everytime their programme
    played it ?

    Nf3 cannot be patented because chess is long established. However for people to play like Fritz here means that the Fritz maker's sweat is going unrewarded.
