Probably the way to approach this would be for the community to voice their opinions via the company's official facebook page and twitter. Companies don't like this sort of stuff being in the public eye like that.
I personally can not use paypal anymore because they banned my account over a single transaction that is apparently against their terms of service. (I'm not sure exactly how it violates their terms of service, but that's what they say, and I have no recourse).
If anyone ever buys knock-off...
Actually, it doesn't have to work like that at all. Many businesses such as overstock.com and tigerdirect.com already accept bitcoin, but do an immediate conversion to USD at the time of the transaction. There is no risk in holding an "unstable" currency that way. It also ends up being way...
Try looking into insurance. https://www.healthcare.gov/
I am no expert, but as I understand it, the insurers can no longer deny coverage due to preexisting conditions, and people are actually required to get insurance during the coming year or else pay a fine. I don't know what options she might...
I only did a handful, I didn't feel like doing them all. I haven't drilled PLLs by themselves for a while, and I found myself forgetting how to do a lot of them if the cube wasn't set up with the case.
My solves average around 25 seconds.
Average of 12
Took me over a year to learn OLL.
The problem wasn't learning the algs. It was remembering them for longer than a day.
There are just so many different algs for OLL, unless you are doing several hundred solves every day, you aren't going to be getting them all in actual solves in order to...
Re: OLL, PLL, COLL, CMLL CLL trainer
According to the other thread, it just reverses the alg, is that correct?
You need to put rotations in the algs in order to mask them. Otherwise, people learn very quickly what alg they have before they even scramble.
But then again, maybe that is your goal...
Its usually pretty easy to plan the bottom layer with a little bit of practice. I can't always plan a cross on 3x3, but planning the bottom layer on 2x2 isn't much problem, especially when you have 3 pieces already solved.
Also, at the pbl step again, you can always determine what kind of...
Yes, as they said, if you want to get become faster, then you just need to be faster :p
I would suggest first of all make sure you are using OLL algorithms that are optimized for 2x2, rather than the same ones you use on 3x3. Also make sure you are using good PBL algs and you have good...
Sub-5 is "very easy"?
Maybe a bit of an understatement.
Sub 5 may be possible with tons of practice, but I definitely wouldn't say "very easy".
I've been practicing ortega for years, probably well over 10,000 solves, and I still struggle to be sub-6 consistently.
I'm slow and crappy though.
I think it does need to be banned for consistency with other events since we have cubic 7x7x7s now.
But they should save it for the next update of the rules (2014?), to give people plenty of advance notice.
Any way to fix the loud scraping sound that some springs make when turning a layer? Certain sides of a cube make the scraping noise, while others don't. So there must be something I can alter to make sure they are all quiet.
There is a difference between a truly random scramble and a scramble that meets the arbitrary measure of randomness that you have proposed.
Having corner edge pairs that match up might make a solve easier. But they have nothing to do with the random state of the cube. You could have a fully...
I think some people are just slower at turning than others. You can see my join date here. I am still just about as slow as you are at the last layer. Now matter how much I practice the algorithms, they don't get any quicker at this point for me.
And I have done pretty much everything, from...
