I'm not sure I get you here. Do times start to count less as time passes, or when new results come in? If they weigh only .25 after a year, it seems to be the former, and new results have no influence on that.
Good point, I feel the same. However, would you want to see the best result in the...

5b2 does apply however when you have a pop, especially on bigger cubes. For instance: When you get a pop on 7x7 while...
Cheers! There are some really good pointers in there, thank you for that :)
I'll defo have a look at re-inserting edges to influence orientation of LL instead of trying to do it purely with OLL and/or sunes.
Block commutators may be a step to far for me at the moment, as this was only my second...
Finally a sub-40, but I know it could've been much better, considering I was at F2L-1C after 14 moves. Any suggestions?
