Five solutions in one position is great! This is the other reason to like to use
it for possible verification. I actually created only this position with
selective search and looked if mate existe. When quick response went for 11
moves, I stopped right there. To solve it by brute force it could take more that
long time with my program. The best will be with laptop or computer in its
private room. Then no noise to desturb me in my sleep. My two laptops are very
slow to work. 80386 and 80486. My Pentium sleep with me in the same room and it
must stay there quiet all night.

My program don't write in what way went search. For mate it is only possible to
ask the next solution (if it existe) after finding one.

Sound like very good time.

I look all the time on your impressive 350Mh. Not that many have so plenty of
memory like your computer.
