    Back in 2009 when I was 16 years old, I solved the 20x20x20 cube in 20 hours 37 minutes and 7.42 seconds. It was quite an accomplishment even though it was a rather slow solve. I think I could solve it in somewhere between 8 and 14 hours if I were to give a second stab at it. I just wanted to share this with all of you. :)

    Wow, that's some crazy patience. I'd never finish a solve that took me that long.

    How ironic,

    I still have the video when I solved the 20x20x20 in Gabbasoft for the first and only time (I got the solved cube explode), and the date that video was created was December 4, 2009. I solved it in 6:54:06.67 with 7206 moves, but I just made 21 then.


    @qqwref, why isn't your 1 hr 11 min record on speedcubing.com's list of UWRs?!

    I'd be pressing F1 pretty quick...

    F1 just shows you the controls, it doesn't do any moves :p

    I solved a 20x20x20 years ago using my own layer-by-layer method. Not sure how long it took to solve - I did it over several days but only about an hour a day. Here's a capture taken from when it was about two thirds solved.

    Whoa! Layer by layer. So intense. I wasn't even sure if that was possible (in some formal mathematical sense that I'm not writing down). Proof by example.

    I could see myself doing 6 hour solves on a real cube. Not sure if I'd want to do it on line.
