The King of Kong is a documentary about two guys going for a world record in . One of them, Billy Mitchell, comes off as such a conceited jerk, you want punch him in the nose and knock him down in the mud. It may not be an important documentary, but it presents an engaging story of good vs. evil and it’s entertaining.

An online chess community where you can play chess even if you only have 10 minutes. You choose when to move and how often to move in your chess games.
They use the ELO rating system:
All players starts off with the same rating (1200), which gets adjusted based on your completed games and the ratings of your opponents. A special formula is used to quickly approximate your playing ability during the first 20 rated games, so even if you are much higher rated, it won’t take long to establish your real rating on GameKnot.
Things I like about Gameknot:
Things I don’t like:
I used to play chess a lot in Junior High school, where Paul Cooper and I led our team to provincial championships. I haven’t played seriously since then, although I’ve dabbled with it every couple of years using Chessmaster. Gameknot has piqued my interested in it again.
