Alberta Researchers Solve Checkers

abscissa abscissa writes  |  about 7 years ago

abscissa (136568) writes "It took them almost 18 years, but the solution to checkers has been found. You can't win at checkers unless your opponent makes a mistake! Now all that remains is elusive solution to chess! With more possible ways to play a game of chess than there are electrons in the known universe, it does seem far off. Until then, study your perfect opening books for checkers!"

abscissa (136568) writes "Essjay, the one of highest level ups on Wikipedia who lied about his credentials in an effort to "protect his identity" (though he later announced his real name, age, and place of residence), announced that he will be leaving Wikipedia. He claimed to have several advanced degrees in theology and even went so far as to pretend to be a professor and write in support of a student (that content has now been permanently erased). He had been promoted to a paid Wikia position by Jimbo Wales, but after an outpouring of anger he was asked to resign by Jimbo (who claimed not to have all the facts until very recently)."
