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!

Chess engine: Monolith 0.1

Monolith - UCI chess engine
Author - Jonas Mayr.

- Monolith is a small open source UCI-compliant chess-engine written in C++14 by a not too busy medicin student who prefers to invest his extra time into computer chess rather than to seek better grades, because it's simply much more fun. 
This version of Monolith is the first one of a hopefully long and prosper development process. Huge credits go to the Chess Programming Wiki, an incredibly valuable resource. Without it this little project would have never been possible.
