MILO Little Olympics and chess

Suddenly, I realized that it's been nearly 16 years since this amateur chess player turn chess blogger had been a student of MILO Checkmate and it's chess programs. Fritz and Rybka wasn't born yet at that time kids, those were Bruce Pandolfini days, the old fashion way of reading and studying blurred photo copied chess books, if you ask.
