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!

KVETKA 3.15 - new version chess GUI

Kvetka's main features Friendly user interface. Uses comparably small area on the screen.

Works with all UCI engines for analysing the game. The strongest (as we believe) engine Rybka supports this format.
One of the fastest free engines – Stockfish 2.2.2 – is distributed together with Kvetka.

It intends for analysing games only. You can't play chess with Kvetka, but we are thinking about it. PGN and FEN support.
You can easily add the games via the clipboard. Supports different fonts and encodings that are used by chess sites. It is free!
