Stefan Pochmann is doing a bet on the "Wetten Dass" show tonight.
This is a very famous live TV-show in Germany where celebrities place bets on participants doing all kinds of stuff, typically against a time limit.
Tonight there are actually two cubers on the show: Stefan and Justin B...
For those of you using Old Pochmann for edges: do you ever include edge 3-cycles to solve 2 edges at a time?
Easy example: U-perm UR-UF-UL or S-slice UR-DL- UL
Slightly harder: including F/B mirrored U-perms so you can cover all four U-edges
Slightly harder: Using 1-2 move set ups for the above...

Surprised to find there’s no thread for this competition yet…
I would like to ask the Belgian cubers if I could catch...

I’m visiting Orlando for work in December and added a few days of holiday to my trip.
Arrival Thursday evening Dec 1st and I will have that evening and Friday to myself.
This has been on my mind for a while and I considered posting it in the other “future of…” thread but was afraid it would get lost in there.
And most of the discussion was geared towards “progress” in cubing and not organization of competitions.
In the current rate in which...
UARS satellite re-entry today Sept 23
Some parts of this 35-foot-long, 15-foot-diameter satellite will survive re-entry and could make for a spectacular view, possibly even in broad daylight.
Anyone besides me keeping an eye out on this one?
Current predictions are that UARS re-entry...
I'm currently at 1.89 MB of 1.9 MB of possible uploades onto my Speedsolving account.
I would like to free up some space by deleting some files but I cannot seem to find a "delete option"...
Is there anyone out there that knows how to do this?
I do not post this in the OAQthread as this...
On kanoforum.nl I just came across a reply on a 6 years, 7 month old post :)

Feel free to add your epic bump finds.

Those of you following the FMC results in the weekly comp or the example solve thread may have noticed an increase in my FMC results.
This is a result of my quest to explore the limits of Human Thistlethwaite for FMC.
I have now had a few sub 40 solves with a best result of 35 HTM.
Here’s my attempt at creating a long running thread ;-)
The ideais to post an image that, with some creative thinking, can be linked to cubing.
Example: An image of someone caressing the bottom end of a cut-in-half Walrus: Petrus.
If you find the link you can post your own image as the...
I searched the forum for titles containing 2x2x4 and did not find any references to a tutorial.
So here you have one!
It is a very simple 3-step solution I came up with yesterday, I will call it SAPS.
If this method has already been mentioned somewhere else: just forget about the name…...

Whenever I find a corner in the wrong slot I will often start solving the CE pair "in" that slot and then move the joined pair to the correct slot. Especially the cases where the corner is oriented properly and I just need to "insert" the edge above it...
Where did the original thread go? I don't even find it in my list of "threads started"...
Anyway: My protomold puzzle has arrived in my Belgian office today.
I do not know how long it has been sitting in the Orlando office though.
But I can only assume that delivery of your...
1x1x1 supercube functional prototype 1
My apologies for the crappy video (and prototype) quality...
I had this proto printed via our own FDM equipment which gives very rough parts but I just couldn't wait to test functionality.
Overal dimensions: 2x2x2 cm
6 springs allow the faces to...
