Storm,
a chess program by Theo van der Storm which participated at the first five Dutch Computer Chess Championships, the DOCCC 1981, DOCCC 1982, DOCCC 1983, DOCCC 1984 and finally the DOCCC 1985, where it won the Group B competition. Storm was written in Pascal and ran on a PDP-11 of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam in 1981 [1], and was later ported to C to run on various microprocessor platforms [2]. The former CSVN site Stormy's Corner in remembrance on Theo, mentioned that Storm will be prepared for publication [3] .
