    Continuing with what has now become a tradition, I'm once again organizing the annual Negative Time Solving Contest. The scrambles for this year and the time submission form will be posted there soon.

    DST (Daylight Saving Time) ends in many countries in Europe during the weekend of October 26 (fixed. Thanks, TMOY!), and in most parts of the United States and Canada at 2am on Sunday, November 3. See Time and Date.com to check the clock change schedule in your area. There's also a Facebook event page (scheduled at North America time).

    Please note that each solve started (not just start the timer but actually make a move) before daylight saving ends and completed after it ends counts as a negative solve. This means that you can simultaneously compete in 3x3 speedsolve, 3x3 BLD, multiBLD, etc, at the cost of some extra time in your negative solve.

    Once again, thanks to Tyson Mao for bringing this great Caltech tradition to cubing. Good luck to all participants!

    11/06: Results have been posted! Thanks to all who participated, and see you again next year!

    Sorry about that. =(

    There also seem to be some European countries that are considering going off DST in the next few years. Compete while you can!

    May you please provide a 7x7 scramble. I will make it my goal to be ready by then.

    Nah, I've had enough relays...

    25x25x25 should be doable in negative time. Haven't done it yet, but looking at my list of times, it shouldn't be too hard.

    I'd definitely call that a perk. DST is pretty stupid.

    The good news that if you live in Australia and happen to live in SA, ACT, NSW, VIC or TAS you can do this in April 2014.

    QLD, NT and WA do not observe daylight savings.

    I did a negative solve time for a 3x3 cube in April 2013 and got minus 59 minutes 59 seconds and 33 seconds.

    Mike, I'm thinking 4x4x4 multiBLD again. I don't know if you have something else crazy planned, but if not you should consider 4x4x4multi :)
