When RAM became a lot more available and programs were stored on (surprise!) a hard drive, Sargon actually grew into a moderately formidable chess AI, at least against nonlinear types such as myself. Back in the day, though, it would take up to 30 minutes (if allowed; I seem to recall you could set the ply for much less) to move.
Glazunov: Did you also have Sargon? Those RAM restrictions made it so dumb that even I could beat it.
yogsloth: Google tells me that was a chess game. I don't think so; I don't remember anything like that. But then again I really only remember the two I listed earlier.
Ah, good times. Heh.
