That's a cool video. I can't really see what you're doing, but you're crazily fast.


Well, I got a very fast lucky 4x4x4 solve earlier. The time was 58.72 seconds. What happened was that after the centers stage the BL and BR edges were solved, which made for a very fast edge section with my 2-at-a-time method, and then the OLL was relatively fast and the PLL was J. I hope to get a nonlucky sub-1 some day!

I also had an amazing 5x5x5 average at the Captain's Cove competition - it was 2:09.99 if they did the math right. Every solve went really fast, way better than average, and I still don't know why - only one solve had a part that I'd consider lucky. My dad actually taped it all, so I hope to post the video(s) at some point. I think the average will put me in the top 10 5x5x5 solvers worldwide... wow.

I ended up winning three events there, which is an accomplishment in itself. It's the first time I've ever won an event at an official competition. Yay!

I just BLDed the 2x2 in 45.xx! I held the cube so that 2 corners were solved, then the rest was a easy memo!

Wow. That's crazy. Would you consider it lucky that you could hold the cube so that two were solved?

You know, you gave me an idea, though, for my own 2x2x2 BLD - hold it so the BLD (heh) corner is solved, and then you can see everything you want to move.

I would could consider it slightly lucky, but there is always one corner solved anyway! As you said, I always hold BLD so it is already solved. Something that you can't do on cubes bigger than 2x2.

I don't know what the chances of havng 2/8 corners solved is. My dad scrambled it!

You can hold BLD always solved on any bigger even cubes, but it's probably much more valuable to try to get lots of centers solved instead.

I really need to work on 3x3x3 blindfold... I've only had one successful solve so far.

I almost have the square-1 down! I only need to memorize the parity, and work a little bit more on getting it into the square.

I have been working at this puzzle for a looong time, and I have only thrown it once :)

Also, my new 4x4 PB is 2:30... or something like that. Pretty good considering I've only been using K4 for a short while. I used an altered version though, a version for the lazy man... K3? Lol.

Finally, I have solved a 5x5 using K4. I have a better understanding of how to do the LL. I am proud of this, considering how lazy I am and I only use a few basic commutators. There are still a few I should learn :(

19.00 average. :D Unfortunately, I didn't save the individual times, but it was a roll of 13 solves (first one was awful).

I need to start working on that again. I used to be able to solve it in around a minute, but I've almost forgotten the algorithms I used to know.

Im starting blindfold solving and got 2 successful blindfold solves on the 2x2 in a row! The same day I started! I found that it was easier to just make up my own, "method". Im not sure if this is what anyone else does but I use and number/letter sequence. Letters are orentation, numbers are permutation. An example of a solve that I just did was:

-Scramble-

Yellow on top red in front

R2 U2 F R F U2 B2 L R' U R' U R D2 R L U2

-Solution-

I solved with blue on top and white in front.

62d 83d (x2y2) Orentation "Spiderman" Setup Move U. 23. Undo setup move. (x2) Orentation "Roadmap". Setup move U2. 23. U. Done.

-Explination-

62d 83d - This permutates the first (blue) layer.
the "62" means that the piece in spot number six has to go to spot number 2. The "d" means that the orentation is facing down.

I set up my number system like this:

Top face:

43
12

Bottom face:

87
56

(x2y2) Orentation "Spiderman"- This orentates the bottom (green) layer.
My "Spiderman" orentation is, "R U2 R2 U' R2 U' R2 U2 R".

Setup Move U. 23 Undo setup move- This permutates the bottom layer (green) with a setup move and a t-perm.

(x2) Orentation "Roadmap"- This orentates the blue layer. My "Roadmap" orentation is, "(x) R U L' U' R' U L U "

Setup move U2. 23. U - This permutates the rest.

I hope at least some of you can understand this. I think I made it more complicated in this post than it really is.

Im getting better at it. I started solving with the BLD method, but with my eyes open, to get a feel for the method. Then I proceeded to solve with the blindfold on.

I now know 4 methods to solve the cube. Petrus, modified Roux, Fridrich (f2l), and lbl of course. I hope to learn corners first method next. Learning different methods helps me understand the priciples of the other's.

Game, learning corners first should be hard. Just use the M slice a lot, and you'll understand it :)

Racing Emile Compion (and refusing to lose a Canadian :)) My warm up solve was 16 seconds (first race) and then I averaged 21.7 seconds. New PB average, and I got 4 sub 20 times in that average.

I have also finally solved the square-1! I just need to learn the parity, and I have this puzzle down!

I have made a solution for the rubik's brain racker (higher order sliding puzzle). If you are unfamiliar with this puzzle, it has four colors, each with 5 triangles numbered from 1-5. It is the shape of a ball. You remove one piece, this piece for me is the red triangle labeled 1. There are technically three solved states, each with their own sub states. This solution was for the state where numbers and colors and in their correct place. The sub solution is two colors oppisite each other, with the other two colors' triangles in between them, with the numbers of each color next to the corresponding number of the oppisite color, with the same color every other triangle. It looks somewhat like this
43 (yellow)
512 (yellow)
(blue)5(green)1(blue)1(green) etc...
512(red)
43 (red)


It is easy to figure out until the last layer, if the numbers are in the incorrect order, or running the wrong way (numbers right, but opposite the top), you have to use a complicated clyclying process that takes advantage of the empty slot (solve the layer with the empty slot last) by putting one of the last layer into the middle, and using the free piece to cycle pieces around the "shells" (4 pieces and one gap can rotate at the meeting point of 5 triangles, or in this case, 4 triangles and a triangle shaped gap.) without screwing up the placement of the numbers in the middle layer. Like I said before, it only takes basic puzzling skills, but the last layer requires extra attention. :evil:

I have learned my 5th method, saliva, thanks to David J. for the link to the solution, and for inventing it! I find it helpful to learn as many solutions as possible so i learn concepts that i can apply to other solutions.

I am borrowing my friend's 5x5 for the weekend. I am becoming mad though, because I keep messing up on the LL! I also need to figure out what algs to use for the last two edges of the LL, I can't figure out what moves commute what.

At last! Sub-20!

Average: 19.10 seconds

Individual Times: 16.22, (15.34), (21.86), 19.06, 21.78, 20.91, 21.33, 20.41, 18.75, 19.17, 17.17, 16.23


I knew it was going to be good after I achieved my personal best time twice in a row the first two solves.

Do I get a prize? :P

New 3x3 avg: 21.12

-I am beating Emile
-I was in the zone today
-I feel happy about it

9 out of 50 solves were sub 20. 5 or 6 of those were 18 or below.

I got 2 OLL skips today

I got a new 4x4 PB solve of 2:20 with K4 method, now I just have to beat 2:12, my reduction PB.

I got a sub 6 5x5 solve last night.


I'm doing good this weekend :)

I had a 14.44 second lucky solve (PLL skip), a 23.39 second nonlucky one-handed solve, and a 17:39.28 marathon of 42 cubes, which works out to about a 25.2 second average for no-inspection solves.

The no inspection part is the most impressive, I am almost sub 20 and I can't get better than 25 or so seconds with no inspection...

If you are a Fridrich solver, no-inspection is all about finding and placing the cross pieces very quickly, and after that it's just a normal solve. I do a lot of no-inspection stuff for the bigger cubes (4x4x4 and 5x5x5) because I use reduction, and the last step is essentially a no-inspection solve. I can usually get low-20 solves and even some sub-20 solves for no-inspection, because of this practice.

That may be why I can't do it: I use K4, so I don't need no inspection solving.

Why not? What has K4 got to do with no inspection?

What he's saying is that no-inspection solving on the 3x3x3 doesn't affect your 4x4x4 times if you're using K4. So if you're a K4 person you won't get any no-inspection practice from 4x4x4 practice, just from no-inspection practice.

Yep, Q hit the nail on the head with that one. K4 solves don't really require no inspection 3x3, except maybe the F3L, which I do in a slightly 3x3 fashion.

Maybe I should improve my computer-bigcubes times too... let's start with 4:17 on the 6x6x6 and go from there.

I hate you, I can't even get that fast with reduction.

I got a 21.59 average last night with the 3x3. My best is 21.12, so I am getting faster and more consistent. I am going to be sub 20 by the end of the month.

why would you subtract the best and worst 4? That doesn't make any sense to me, you only take away the best and worst solves...

He did a total of 18 solves. I guess he wanted an average of 10.

btw, I already fullfiled my first goal for the summer. I have averaged under 18. 17.70 :D

I just completed a 10x10x10 cube (computer) in 16:21.594. :shock: The turn speed was 2.18 turns/sec; I think I can go a bit faster on the computer, but I could never go this quickly on a physical cube...

When I was doing the centers, there were a lot of centers to move, but they tended to be in blocks, so I still used an average number of moves (more than the last solve, in fact).

Q, you might want to check out the UWR for the 10x10 computer cube... Because you broke it. Congrats, I'm not sure if you were aware of this or not, lol.

I finally got a stackmat! I am going to start a dif thread, as I have a few questions concerning it.

Do you mean broke it again? Michael G is our very own qqwref!

Ah, I had a suspicion. I just never knew Q's name... In fact, I never took the time to learn to type out qqwref...

Congrats on breaking it again, a 10x10 in under 20 mins is insanity.

Thanks.

Yeah, I've been submitting to the UWR list whenever I beat my personal record for 10x10x10. I've still got a couple of seconds to go, but it's nice to have UWR on it!

Go centers last! :D

I know how that feels. I have submitted a few snake times into the UWR. By the way, does anyone know who I can contact to have my name spelled correctly on there? I submitted it as Zac, but they must have though I misspelled my own name and put it on the site as Zack.
