website. Keep on doing the good work.

This page is also not quite up to date. Fruit, Glaurung and Scorpio are not mentioned, as far as I can see. Of course there are also dozens of weaker engines missing, but most of these are probably not very interesting.

Edit: Thanks for the comment, I added them...

New dedicated Mac chess site

Sorry about spamming this newsgroup. But it is chess related and it answers some questsions that are asked from time to time in this newsgroup.

I intend to complete it with some information about compiling and running Xboard applications and with other information that could be useful for most users.

Hope it helps some people,
