True story , I stalemated a university’s computer at the hardest level of chess you could play .
Back in 1977, our high school gave us the opportunity to meet and learn with the computer specialist at the University of Lethbridge Alberta.
It was super interesting at that time , as they had just done a $6,000,000 upgrade . Which is funny by today’s standards ,as our phones would kick the crap out of their computer , but back then it was a pretty big deal .
So we were given computer time , so I’d go their in the evening and use my hours up playing games .
I logged in to my terminal and requested to play chess at the hardest level which was 10 .
Then I requested it to take the first move . Then I logged into the terminal and played the same game of chess , but used its first move as my first move .
I used its counter move on the second terminal as my first move on the first terminal.
So I kept on going back and forth from terminal to terminal, basically making the computer play against itself , till it eventually had a stalemate .
Stupid story , but I was the only person on a city of 60,000 that could stalemate their supercomputer.
I’d tell people I tied the computer ,and they’d be all impressed ,right up until I told them how I did it .
Well if your so smart, why didn’t you figure it out lol
I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate
