This has nothing to do with chess but it is a nice picture and makes me smile whenever I see it.  It was taken by a friend on a trip in October 1999.  I'm in the water somewhere.

Diablo is my latest chess engine.  It supports only the UCI interface so to use it you will need a GUI that supports UCI or Winboard with an adapter.   The latest version 0.5.1 made available October, 2006.

DrunkenMaster Chess Engine
DrunkenMaster is the name of a chess engine I wrote. It is also the name of a classic martial arts film and I highly recommend it if you are into that sort of thing.
DrunkenMaster is just a chess engine, to play it you will need a graphical user interface. It supports the winboard protocol and should be compatible with any interface that supports the protocol such as Arena or the WinBoard interface itself.   Starting with version 1.0 it also supports the UCI interface so it can be loaded into GUI's such as Fritz that support that as well.   Each download comes with an opening book which  typically grows with each new version but is still quite small containing about  6000 positions.
