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: Pleco 0.1.1


Pleco Engine is a Rust re-write of the Stockfish chess engine.
Author - Stephen Fleischman

This project is split into two crates, pleco_engine (the current folder), which contains the UCI (Universal Chess Interface) compatible Engine & AI, and pleco, which contains the library functionality.
The overall goal of pleco is to recreate the Stockfish engine in rust, for comparison and educational purposes. As such, the majority of the algorithms used here are a direct port of stockfish's, and the credit for all of the advanced algorithms used for searching, evaluation, and many others, go directly to the maintainers and authors of Stockfish.
