Hi, Heiner!

Your time look like very good. When I saw your time I wanted to go back and see
my for nine moves for brute force, but finally forgot to try this. Had very busy
day with my work that I brought home.

At least, time for brute force up to 8 moves is:

Moves           Time          Branching factor             NPS

4               0.82 sec                                   91k
5               5.43 sec                                   71k
6               31.8 sec                                   59k
7               2 min 35 sec                               51k
8               10 min 41 sec                              51k
