1. Hi everyone... I just successfully completed my first blindfolded solve on Saturday, October 22 (2011) at approximately 4:00 am. I was tired but I decided that I wanted to actually attempt it, I've been trying to try solving it blindfolded once, but I've never had the time. It was my first time doing the 3x3 blindfolded and I successfully completed it. I, unfortunately did not time it (I was tired...it was 4:00am), but I am sure I took somewhere between 6 and 8 minutes. It took me about 4 to 5 minutes to memorize the cube and another 2 to 3 minutes to solve it. All times are approximate. I am hoping to do another blindfolded solve timed...soon...

O_O That's a really good time for a first solve! Congratulations!

I think with the low accuracy rate I have, it just comes down to dumb luck deciding where I get the solves I get. Not really any difference between a competition solve and an at-home solve. Also, I'm better at 5BLD than when I started, and now I'm *only* competing, not any at home, so when I do an attempt it's now more likely to be a success and it's probably in competition.
