From ChessBase.com. Interesting story from 2003.

And here you can see them with Kathe Spracklen:



From the article:

And play they did, against the Fidelity computer that went on to win the Word Micro. I was called away before the first game ended. After two games I returned and asked Fidelity programmer Kathe Spracklen (operating the program in the picture above), tongue-in-cheek, whether the girls had beaten the computer. "Of course not," she replied, "they did not beat it. How could you imagine that? They are just babies. No, they did not beat it, they murdered it, they tore it to little pieces, they chewed it up and spat out the pieces, they massacred the thing!" Never before or since have I seen a chess programmer so flushed with pleasure at the defeat of his or her program.
