    ZZ-CT Thread

    Not really... Overall with ZZ-CT you save about half a move but there are a good 150 extra algs.

    Is this memo method viable?

    Are you saying that you're going to imagine the cube, and then instead of imagining colors on it, you'll put numbers for each target, so that as you solve, you can go look around the cube for the next number? It doesn't sound like the best system. It doesn't seem like it would be fast and it...

    One-Answer Blindsolving Question Thread

    *I'm not fast, but I do have a general knowledge of blind solving, so take this with a grain of salt, but that does make me a beginner, so I do know what it feels like to not have a clue about what I'm doing* Typically, for 3BLD, you'll want to memo corners first using a visual system with...

    Race to Full ZB/ZBLL

    This is a really good written description of a 2-sided recognition system called Harris/Baum. It's from this zbll google doc, second to last page of the intro before the algs start; I don't know if the algs are obsolete or if they're still good though. I don't know of a video on 2-sided, but...

    Race to Full ZB/ZBLL

    Oh gosh I've barely improved over the course of 2.5 years. iirc I did pretty well through 2017 but I know that I haven't been learning anything recently. I haven't counted in a while but I'm somewhere around 300/494. Let's see if I can finish by summer. I'll start finishing up my pi set again...

    How do I get more accurate with corners with OP?

    Record a video of yourself doing an only corners solve (with memo written down if that helps) and if you mess up, figure out what set up moves you did wrong. Try to figure out which ones are giving you trouble and decide on what they're going to be before hand so you don't have to come up with...

    [AfR] Ryan Pin Harry - 5.37 Clock Single + 6.19 Clock Average AfR

    At least he's actually good at clock... I don't think it's right to switch nationality to just get records, but if you're going to do it, at least be fast.

    One-Answer WCA Competition and Regulations Question Thread

    Changing the case on your clock shouldn't interfere with its legality.

    Please help the science of cubing by participating in this experiment

    I believe the experiment ends January 31, so I would presume that results could be determined soon after.

    What's in a name? CFOP or Fridrich?

    First, I guess, thank you so much for not having this be a pointless bump like 'yea we still call it cfop'. Real discussion is great! I think if she had actually developed each step, then it could make sense. But she didn't. I don't know what this means. Is 'good research' functioning as an...
