I'm black so that's good, but -3.47 what??? Pawns, inches, miles,
ice-cream sandwiches?


Pawns.

It's funny, the one that's free is the one I would pay for!


If you really want to play for open source software authors are likely
to accept.

Well, I found what I was looking for. SCID
I can analyze my OTB games with, and see where I screwed up, even in games
that I won, and thought that I did pretty well, Scid showed me where I

could
have mated earlier, or where I might have blundered.

So, anyway... A few questions:

1. Let's say I'm black, and Scid tells me that in a certain position, that
there is a score of -3.47.
I'm black so that's good, but -3.47 what??? Pawns, inches, miles,
ice-cream sandwiches?
2. On the Scid web site Shane say's that "The reference database files are
currently not available".
does anyone have a large database for Scid, or could someone point me

in
the right direction?

Just download a large collection of games in pgn-format and convert it to
Scid-format.
Have a look at http://www-user.rhrk.uni-kl.de/~balzer/chessgames.html

Download any PGN-database - open a new Scid-database and import the
PGN-file; there is a free PGN-database, 2.5 mill games, at
www.chesslib.no

Thanks to all of you kind peeps!

I figured that it was pawns, I really didn't think it was icecream sanwiches
;^)
Also, after I posted I did notice the comment about donations.

Thanks again,
Muggs
