Evolution of a Go program

About the development of Moyo Go Studio, software to (help) play the Oriental game of Go. Go is a two-player zero-sum game of perfect information. It is considered much harder than Chess. Currently, in spite of enormous effort expended, no computer program plays it above the level of a beginner.

LOC celebration

I'm going to have a beer because MoyoGo exceeded 1 million lines of code today. It's sunny outside too!

You can see I'm a little sloppy with the warnings these days because my policy is to allow none! After the beer, I hope to make the "Kombilo" (pattern search) module multi-threaded, so that it will be much faster on multi-core CPU's. Some of my customers already have such machines, so I owe it to them.
