Shane's Chess Information Database is a powerful Chess Toolkit, with which one can create huge databases, run chess engines, and play casual games against the computer or online with the Free Internet Chess Server. It was originally written by Shane Hudson , and has received strong contribution from Pascal Georges and others.

Scid vs. PC began with bug-fixes for the computer-versus-player features of Scid (hence the name), but has evolved into a solid alternative with many new features and interfaces. The project is authored by Stevenaaus and numerous contributors (thanks).chess pc games

Today I will show you how to easily block the servers hosting Spotify ads on your Linux/Mac or Windows machine. This will allow you to listen all day long on a free account without hearing a single ad. This trick is very simple, legal and works great. Spotify may catch on and find some way to stop this from working but, as of today (10/07/2018) it works swimmingly.

A first version of a tiled base map of the Roman Empire was created in 2012 by the author, in collaboration with the Pelagios project. A second version was created afterwards and became part of an online historical geographic information system (GIS) called the Digital Atlas of the Roman Empire (DARE) hosted by the Department of Archaeology and Classical History, Lund University, Sweden and available at http://dare.ht.lu.se. The map was inspired by the Barrington Atlas of the Greek and Roman World (Talbert, 2000) and was built upon digitization efforts carried out by the Pleiades and DARMC projects even though it became necessary to return to the original map for additional data in order to produce a functional digital map. DARE aims at a much higher level of accuracy and the integration of digital resources such as satellite imagery, national topographic maps, source texts, other source material and scholarly literature. Since 2012 we have worked to improve the map regarding both its appearance, quality of location, meta data describing properties of the ancient place and links to related digital resources.

The most prominent change is however the addition of 9111 places (and buildings) with a different provenance than the Barrington Atlas of the Greek and Roman World. The Barrington Atlas was limited to the physical size of the printed atlas, limitations that do not apply the same way to a digital map. Most places that have been added appear in national heritage databases which increasingly have become available online the last years, for instance, the UK based heritage databases Pastscape, Canmore and Coflein covering England, Scotland and Wales respectively. Another important change in the new version of the map is the rendering of natural and semi natural areas (forest, grassland etc.) and bathymetry. In comparison with the map created for the Pleiades project, the map created at Lund University contains an additional zoom level, i. e. zoom level 11. The Digital Atlas and its place database is an active project which is updated at least once a month. In 2015, 822 places were added.

The map itself is also used by Pelagios, Pleiades and other projects to provide a more suitable historical context for their mapping applications. Its gazetteer is implemented in the Pelagios project. The base map is Open Data and can be used by anyone under a Creative Commons BY-SA licence. The projection of the map is Spherical Mercator (EPSG:3857) compatible with most Web mapping software and easy to implement. The maximum zoom level 11 corresponds to a scale at 1:250 000.

In DARE, ancient sites are organized as places and buildings (subsites), each with a distinct place type and location. The buildings are not rendered on the base map because of their close proximity to the places they belong to, but are instead available as thematic overlays (e.g. amphitheaters, theaters, temples etc. respectively). Meta data about places and buildings are available next to the map.map
There's no shortage of audio converters out there. This one is fast, free, easy to use, converts many audio formats, and will run on Windows and Mac.

MediaHuman Audio Converter has a simple to use drag and drop interface, converts batches of audio files quickly, and supports most formats. It can convert WMA, MP3, AAC, WAV, FLAC, OGG, AIFF, Apple Lossless formats and many others. It also searches for disk covers, retains folder structures, and supports iTunes.

Periodically, on more than one computer and more than one Windows version, Windows decides to convert MP3 files to WMA's. It converts random artists (but not all their songs or the same title) and individual audio tracks, even when write protected. It occasionally converts files it converted previously. It doesn't convert tracks that are on a separate hard drive or USB flash drive. I've found as many as 600 converted files on my system. It doesn't matter where they were acquired - the artist's site, amazon, or CD's that I've ripped to my hard drive. When I add tracks to a media player, I'll see converted files.

That's where MediaHuman Audio Converter comes in - open the program, drag and drop files to be converted, choose a format, and press the convert icon. I've converted up to 250 files at once, in minutes. Small amounts of files are converted almost instantly. Audio files can also be added manually by clicking the plus sign on the toolbar and navigating to the files to be converted. Note this is the description for the Windows version - the interface for Mac isn't quite the same.
USB devices can run into issues periodically. Download and run the Windows USB Troubleshooter to diagnose and repair common USB issues.

From time to time you may not be able to safely eject a USB device from Windows using the Safely Remove Hardware dialog box. You may see a "This device is currently in use" message, or the USB device isn't detected. The USB Troubleshooter can diagnose and repair these and some other USB problems. It was created to work with USB audio, storage, and print devices - such as thumb drives, USB hard drives, and USB printers - that don't eject using the Safely Remove Hardware dialog box.

The Windows USB Troubleshooter is small and fast, and can be downloaded from this Microsoft website.

When you click the Download button, you'll see a download prompt asking if you want to run or save a file named WinUSB.diagcab. If you opt to run the file, it will run immediately. Saving the file downloads it to your computer and can be run at any time.microsoft

The tips in this article let you:

  • Get definitions for words
  • Translate documents to other languages

Some websites don't allow copying and pasting into input fields. Use this add-on to enable copying and pasting at sites that don't allow it.

Some sites will block copying and pasting certain fields on their websites, most often signing in at a site, or signing up at a website. Don't F* With Paste is an extension that works in Firefox and Chrome that allows copying and pasting into fields that are blocked.

I was signing up for a service a few days ago and couldn't paste a password into the password field. I use LastPass to generate long passwords, and I really didn't want to manually input an eighteen character password with upper and lower case letters, numbers, and special characters into the password field. I went looking for a way around it and found Don't F* With Paste. Since I use multiple browsers I was happy to see that it works in not only Chrome and Firefox, but Vivaldi, Opera, and Waterfox.

When you first encounter Regular Expressions, they may seem like a random string of gibberish. While they might look awkward (with a somewhat confusing syntax), they are also extremely useful.

The truth is properly understanding regular expressions will make you a much more effective programmer. In order to fully understand the regex world you first need to learn the basics concepts, on which you can later build.

So without further ado, lets get started :)perl javascript
