    Algorithms for creating OLL cases for practising

    Is there a list of "reverse algorithms' that create a OLL case on a solved cube for the purpose of practising newly learned OLLs. I'm trying to learn the remainder of the OLLs but find it hard to create the case that I want. This has probably been asked before but I can't seem to find...

    Rubik's Legal action?

    Reading through this thread has had me asking the same question. Why do they not employ someone to help them develop a Rubik's brand speedcube? They can call it the Rubiks Pro or something like that, if it's any good they could make a lot of money from it instead of seeming targetting these...

    Greetings from Enterprise

    I can actually solve in Stormtrooper Armour! I have a pair of black latex gloves especially for that purpose. I've always wanted to do an exhibition solve at a competition for charity. We're just on our way back from the middle east and for charity I did solves for the entirety of the Suez...

The fact that situations like this happen so infrequently proves that the system works. If this was a...
