Not if the score stays 0. Then you're just doing a minimal window search all the
time. If you do more than only material, the score changes and you have to do a
couple of researches.

I heard. In the end, I unstood, I was lucky you gave me the draw.
Hans was quite happy with the way XiniX played (until the bug ) He even accused
it of making longterm plans. I should be able to upset some people at WMCCC if I
get the bugs out.

>(BTW2 Are you going to join Maastricht and how can I apply?)

Eh, it's my university that organises it (Actually, 2 colleagues of me). My boss
would be quite upset if I wouldn't play.

The easiest way to apply is through the web (
then on-line registrationform ) and just pay on arrival.
