Great site.

Only thing that keeps bugging me is I stare at a problem for 5 minutes before I realize im trying to solve the problem for the wrong color.

Maybe its just me but my eyes keep missing the smaller "... to move" box under the heading and after doing several in a row of the same color i start assuming what color im solving for which makes it all the more annoying. Maybe having the color in the header like "White to mate in 3" would help? Or something similar. Just a thought.

thanks,
