Note that I did not ask to download Rybka because I plan to use it mainly for
correspondence games and I thought that asking for it because of that reason is
not nice but I downloaded it because I see that everyone can do it.

I think that this also may help other to get it because I guess that there are
readers of this forum who are going to send it to their friends so practically
everyone who is going to hear about it may get it by email from a friend even if
you do not give it for download after midnight.

Thanks for letting people to download it but I doubt if it is a good idea
because after you give it for free I doubt if many are going to buy it(unless
the beta version cannot be used forever but I see no details that says that it
cannot be used after some date in the readme).
