My question:

I solve white and yellow centers first then add the remaining 4 centers. I sometimes put the last four centers in the wrong position (twice out of 10 attempts) Is there an alg that swaps two centers wether adjacent or opposite while preserving edge pairs? Or should I just keep practicing until I never make that mistake?
If two centers are adjacent and need to be swapped, I do: Rw U2 Rw Lw' U2 Lw (start with centers on top and in front)
If two centers are opposite and need to be swapped I do: Rw2 U2 Rw2 Lw2 U2 Lw2 (start with centers on top and in front)

With some practice, this will usually never happen. Or you could be like me, and always solve the last four centers in the same order.

For opposite swaps you can just do M2 Uw2 M2 Uw2. It doesn't matter which way you hold it, cause any two opposite swaps will make it solvable, but it swaps F and B.

Both brands have the same meaning, other than that, I have no idea :P

I had a guestion, the rubiks clock does it have another method apart of pochman method?
