I am vira. I hang out in the Ewige Blumenkraft room under Social on KGS. Hail Eris!
I run a bot named Samara. I spent way too long trying to get a recent enough version of java for kgsGtp on my netbsd box; finally I ended up making a wrapper for gnugo to connect via tcp to kgsGtp on my windows box.
Only then did I discover that someone had already compiled gnugo 3.5.9 for windows, rendering my efforts irrelevant.
Here's the wrapper in case anyone else would find it handy.
