No, that totally misses the point.  I started this stuff in 1968 because I
enjoyed chess and thought that a computer playing chess would be neat.  I have
enjoyed it ever since, win lose or draw.  So long as I enjoy it, I plan to
continue doing it.  It hasn't been about winning in at least 15 years.  It is
simply a great deal of fun for me...

That's why I am still doing it after 35+ years.  I suppose the "lack of fun" is
why nobody else has stuck with it for that long.
