Oops, I'm very sorry about that. Fixed - you're second place for 3x3x3. I know you're really fast; I just got confused when I was cutting and pasting.

2. Mike, can you add my 5x5x5 BLD result for last week, please?

I just did the scrambles, trying to reorient.
8:59.62, 10:58.72, DNF(12:20.67) = 8:59.62
First was a normal solve, the next two I reorient. I'm a bit slow (25-30 seconds) but I hope it will get better. I also couldn't concentrate well at these two solves, that explains the bad times.

Done. Not a bad first try; it does take a little while to get used to as well - I find that not having the centers to reference tends to make me second-guess and slow down a little. And I didn't reorient the first one either; the original orientation seemed good enough to me.

4. I have a question. How do you find the mean of your five best solves if you have more than 5 successes? Do you have to go in and count by yourself?

EDIT, my results:

2x2: Mean of best 5: 43.16,
consistency: 7/8
1:15.51, DNF(1:07.18), 1:03.74, 38.75, 52.22, 30.40, 49.38, 45.06

3x3: Mean of best 5: 2:30.75, consistency: 5/10
2:40.06, 2:34.14, 2:59.60, DNF(1:50.29), 2:16.78, DNF(2:45.57), 2:03.14, DNF(3:10.79), DNF(2:10.78), DNF(2:22.57)
Comments: Some scrambles were so easy, but I rushed my memo and failed... Oh well, one new pb, 2:03.14. 1:50 would've been awesome, but off by 3 edges.

5. Will do some 4BLD this week

4 BLD
1: DNF 43-ish memo 22-ish

3 BLD accuracy 5/11
5:28.94, DNF, 6:45.68, 4:42.53, DNF, DNF, DNF, DNF, 3.:54.99, DNF, 5:53.85
Too many distractions going on

6. Week 2012-06
3x3 Mean of 5: 4:54.47 - 5/20

This is BY FAR the most BLD solves I have done in one session. 1/3 success rate is pretty awesome for me as well...

Edit: Went ahead and did the last five solves to finish out the 20 tonight. They were all DNF's, so it didn't change my average. 1/4 is still a pretty high success rate for me.

Spoiler:

01) DNF - 8:29.25

02) DNF - 5:06.08
Off by 3 edges

03) 4:20.98

04) DNF - 8:18.18
Spent forever on recall. Cube was jumbled

05) DNF - 5:45.71
Misgrip

06) 3:52.56

07) 4:01.15

08) DNF - 4:36.71
Two misoriented corners

09) DNF - 4:29.01
Three cycle of corners

10) DNF - 8:40.58

11) 6:26.54

12) DNF
Gave up... forgot edges

13) DNF 5:00.84
Off by three edge cycle

14) DNF - 6:42.84
Two flipped corners; four incorrect edges

15) 5:50.14

16) DNF - 4:24.98
Two flipped edges

17) DNF - 4:39.25
Two twisted corners

18) DNF - 4:18.05
This one pisses me off... I stopped the solve and hit the timer, then instantly remembered that I hadn't bothered to finish the solve. I still had one image left, and it would have been correct. I guess mental lapses like this really go to show how much concentration it takes for me to hold onto a memo... there isn't much left for anything else.

19) DNF - 4:34.32
Three cycle of corners

20) DNF - 5:06.88
Jumbled cube

I can't get over how many of my solves are off by only one cycle or one "orientation group."

Go to qqtimer, reset the times, if there any, then click on import, type in you five best results, import and look at session mean.

8. 3x3 BLD:
DNF(1:38.44), 1:02.54, DNF(49.18), 46.18, DNF(57.57), DNF(57.70), 42.66, 1:00.36, 49.60, 56.28, 51.72, DNF(41.31), 48.37, 1:09.45, 44.76, DNF(1:11.88), 44.33, 1:02.08, 46.09, 46.94

42.66, 44.76, 44.33, 46.09, 46.18 = 44.80

Very happy with the accuracy. 14/20. Getting back some speed too

9. 2x2x2 BLD: 22.16
Accuracy: 20/20
Average (18/20): 27.49
Best single: 18.23
24.70, 18.23, 28.28, 28.91, 32.40, 31.52, 30.92, 26.08, 27.57, 23.49, 28.56, 31.05, 26.48, 23.05, 26.84, 27.61, 32.35, 29.98, 30.43, 21.35
Comment: Nice.
