Hello Daniel

Congratulations on your website. It is very interesting for me because I particularly enjoy the early chess computers. Refreshing also to see a website devoted to one type of chess computer which is described in depth.

I tried my Boris Diplomats I and II to see if I could find any differences apart from the colour. Using 30 seconds a move they play various "random" moves in response to Nf3, g3, Bg2 etc but repeating the sequence you can see the same patterns come up on both machines. The manuals are the same. I also have some 1980 publicity leaflets that make no extra claim for the II (brown) version. So it was not marketed as an improvement here in the UK, where both models sold for ÂŁ59.

Boris Is King regards
Mike





Hello Mike, thank you for the informations and for the good compliments. That encourages me in my interesting work.

By the way, if you have any articles and/or advertising about the Boris (or Applied Concepts) I would be so happy if you could scan and to send them to me. But, it is not an urgency, I am ready to wait until you find the time to do it.

Thank you in advance.

Boris Is King regards

I don't think there's any difference between the two models other than the color.  I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong. And I think your question about it being sold in Europe is interesting.

I have a brown Boris Diplomat; i can remember, that in Germany both versions were sold!


regards,
Robert

Hello Ismenio, thank you another time for your encouragements, because, as you certainly know, maintaining a dedicated and bilingual site is lot of work...

Thank you also for any information’s which you will be able to give to enrich my site.

In regard to the Brown Boris Diplomat, I know his existence, however, I have make research and this machine does not seem to have special characteristics compared to the Blue Boris Diplomat. Is the color the only difference? Was the Brown one intended for the European market? Certain site talk about the Boris Diplomat I and Boris Diplomat II?!? Do you know something about that? You know, I pay attention to write truth information on my site because I do not want to induce people in error.

Bye.

Hi Daniel,

I don't think there's any difference between the two models other than the color.  I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong. And I think your question about it being sold in Europe is interesting.

Mine has the "interesting" British type plug that requires an adapter to run here in the US. The other person that I know has a brown Diplomat is Mike Watters and I think his model is also a UK-type version. So, just based on this very small sample, I would say that it probably was a EU release, but that's just a guess.

Good point about the accuracy of the information we display. I have had to make many changes on my site over the years and have some on my "to-do" list. My personal opinion is that we are all responsible for the information we put on the web, not just those running the sites but also the visitors, many of whom have a wealth of knowledge and can help us all to keep the information accurate. My opinion

Like Alain, I will also add a link to your site on my next update.

All the very best,

Ismenio

PS: You do a very nice job in keeping it bi-lingual! Kudos to you!

Hi Daniel,

Like I said before, I liked your site and it is very unique as it concentrates on a particular brand/model.

The dust hasn't settled here at my house (moving and other things) but eventually I want to go back to research and will share with you what I find. Sometimes we can't find everything on the web and have to scour libraries and places like that.

Also, I noticed that you don't have the "brown" Boris Diplomat on your site. Not sure if you wouldn't feature it just because of the different color. But, just incase, below are pictures of the one I have. Feel free to use them if you want.

And, if you haven't done so, you may want to put yourself on our virtual global map, our Frappr map:
http://www.frappr.com/chesscomputers
Every now and then I do get contacted via that map. So that may work for you as well.

All the very best,

Ismenio















PS: does anyone have good tips for taking pictures of displays?

I am a chess computers collector impassioned by machines of the end of the Seventies and beginning of the Eighties (the prehistory of mass market chess computer). I decided to create a site (continually under development) primarily to share this passion. I am interested particularly by machines equipped with a keyboard to enter moves like the famous Boris, Boris Master and Boris Diplomat.

You can find technical information’s, pictures, test games, test with chess problems and a lot of other thing. You are welcome to visit and to give me your commentaries, suggestions and complementary information’s via the guestbook. If you have any information’s on the Applieds Concepts Inc company, picture, texts, technical information on processor and memory chips of this time, anything which could enrich my site, forwarded it to me please.

Thank. Regards, Daniel.

Bonjour je suis un collectionneur d'ordinateurs d'échecs passionné par les appareils de la fin des années 70 et début des années 80 (la préhistoire des ordinateurs d'échecs grand public). J'ai décidé de créer un site (continuellement en développement) essentiellement pour partager cette passion. Je m'intéresse particulièrement aux machines dotées d'un clavier pour entrer les coups comme les fameux appareils Boris, Boris Master et Boris Diplomat.

Vous y trouverez des informations techniques, des photos, des parties de test, des tests avec des problèmes d’échecs et une foule d’autres choses. N’hésitez pas à venir le visiter et à me donner vos commentaires, suggestions et informations supplémentaires via la page guestbook. Si vous détenez des informations sur la compagnie Applieds Concepts, des photos, des textes, n’importe quoi qui pourrait enrichir mon site, faite moi parvenir ces informations.

Merci Ă  l’avance. 

Daniel
