ACBL Ranking

ACBLscore"+" - a short history
Most midnight-hack garage-written programs are disasters; just, unlike the NHS or other large government projects, they stay out of public view. As technologies mature, the opportunity for one brave soul to do something earth-shattering therein drops. Although I admit, ACLBScore looks to me like it shouldn't need more than ...
ACBLscore"+" - a short history
SNOBOL. Wow, thought I was the only person left who wants to revive it. But I don't think it's a good choice for ACBLScore.

Thinking - About what?
An understatement. World class players, tyro ethics.
Unusual action with UI
I agree that the best explanation is not UI, but a desire that South should play as many contracts as possible.
AI and Chess
I expect an AI computer will be an excellent declarer, single-dummy. Bidding might be a challenge, but there won't be any memory load on totally artificial conventions. I wonder if they will put GCC in the "rules".
