    Minime: I can't help you with the solving method but I can tell you they're called + centers; the other ones are X centers.

    Random Blindfold Cubing Discussion

    1. M2 for edges and Old Pochmann for corners. 2. I average around 3:30-4:30. 3. I don't think sub 1:00 is even hard for some people with this method, but I don't know what the limit is. 4. I recommend Old Pochmann for beginners, M2 for a quick improvement, and BH for advanced solvers.

    I don't think index/ring would be much slower than index/middle for me, and I can stream around 180bpm pretty comfortably. The only problem would be one-handed trills.

    The FMC thread

    Line 3 was EO because I'm too unfamiliar with much else from a 2x2x3. Line 4 and 5 might as well be one, and I'm not sure why I kept them together. I think you're right about the 4 corners; that's what I had when I started looking for insertions. I'm not sure where my R went :P Forgive me if I...

    The FMC thread

    Hey, I'm new to this; give me a bit of a break! I don't really know where the 'skeleton' stops and the remainder of the solve begins.

    I'm well aware it's a DNF. I ran out of time.

    That looks right to me! I can't remember the answer exactly but that sounds familiar. I think I see where I went wrong in this now.

    Mathematics marathon

    I had a math competition today and one of the more difficult problems was this: Find the sum of the coefficients of all odd powers of x in the expansion of: (x^2 + 2x + 3)^3 - (x^2 - 2x - 3)^3

    A B9 is an 8 mover with a setup where the setup cancels with the interchange. An A9 is where it cancels with the insertion. I'm pretty sure, for corners, that they're never optimal.
