    21:26 5bld dnf by something idk

    Still no 3rd success
     
  2. 2-7 bld relay DNF by 2 corners at 6x6
    2-5 and 7x7 were solved. Only 2 pieces, f**k.
    I didn't do the corner parity alg, because I execute corners first and it is easy to forget about parity. Usually I use Oliver's tip: cross legs if I have parity, but this time I didn't do it for some reason.
    The time was 1:39:04.50[1:02.57.08]

    Damn, that's one of the most brutal DNFs you can get :(

    Good attempt though!

    Very silly one - 10/11 mBLD simply didn't execute corners of my first cube at all! Just solved edges and went "well that's solved" and moved on :p

    2/6 MBLD (in 38min)

    I think I made every damn possible mistake I could make.
    From what I remember, these were the mistakes:
    -Not seeing flipped edge
    -executing incorrectly, probably not correct order
    -Mistaking a twisted corner for being a regular letter (memorisation mistake)
    -incorrectly memorising or recalling audio memo on 3BLD cube.

    3 of the DNFs were only 2-3 pieces off, except the execution mistake which was pretty far off.
