I like the 3 levels of difficulty per day without changing the link. I prefer chess puzzles over games due to the time the games take.

What time is it changed, or do they change it on a weekend?

Is the endgame database a pay site?

shredderchess.com

I can't bring up an endgame.

I really don't know about the endgame database. I only use the "puzzle of the day" link at the lower right of the home page which has the three levels of difficulty. I know that they sell chess products of all kinds, though; but I have not bought anything.

Yeah, I looked through the site and that's a package they sell.

Nice link though, thanks.

Bobby Fischer documentary enlightening and disturbing:

By Scott D. Pierce

Bobby Fischer was an incredibly difficult man. And it turned out to be incredibly difficult to document the life of the former World Chess Champion, says filmmaker Liz Garbus, whose film “Bobby Fischer Against the World” premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January.

“I’ve made films on death row,” Garbus said. “I’ve made films in many difficult places. I didn’t imagine that the telling of the story of America’s greatest chess champion would be so difficult.”

She spent two years on her documentary, beginning when Fischer died in January 2008.

“I became devoted to making this story the day that I read Bobby’s obituary in the paper,” said Garbus, an Emmy winner and Oscar nominee whose films have taken awards at a dozen different film festivals. Her film “The Farm: Angola USA” won the 1998 Sundance Documentary Grand Jury Prize.
