That was really compact!! But it has no user input and no output formatting. My code can actually group the digits in blocks of desired size and with chosen delimiter. For better readability :D
I did not know that Python works "out of the box" with really huge numbers. Will it also do decimal...
I made a simple script for calculating permutations on nxnxn cubes of various sizes.
Here is an example with size=6.
Obviously you just change the size parameter in the querystring for other sizes. If the size is...
Maybe. But it's a different ball game for branded fashion like Gucci, YSL etc. If you buy fake copies when travelling you may face severe punishment upon arriving home. Who can believe you can really get a genuine Rolex for $20 anyway? Hmmm ...
In our case i consider the dayan "genuine" and...
Yes, at least the name is my invention. The method itself is not rocket science, so somebody else must have used it or someting similar before me. And btw. K4 is truly yours :rolleyes:
On the more serious side. Do seventowns sponsor any other competition than the major ones like Euro, World...
F*** seventowns!! Can i copyright my cage method or the way i shave? Utter utter stupidity and greed. They have absolutely no credibility left. Sorry seventowns. Sad to see the comapny go down this way. They once sponsored our competitions. We don't need them anymore. It's time to move on :tu
I second that. Especially because it is also impossible to change the old results currently in the WCA database.
On a second note let us start to record all those +2 into the database, together with the original result.
We should always record raw data and what we have done to it
Another great topic for a short essay. Show that the 2x2x2 cube can always be solved with turning 3 layers only. Those 3 layers should be all-adjacent, like U-F-R or D-B-L etc. Show also that non adjacent 3 layers like U-F-D won't work (in general).
Yes. My main point is that we keep all raw data. And then decide "later" how we will display those times. It can be rounding, truncating, a mix or whatever ...
Keeping all the raw data gives competition organizers one less thing to worry about. Just report back to WCA the times recorded, be it...
Or why not simply round the times with the new timers according to standard rounding off rule:
12.504 => 12.50
12.505 => 12.51
Then we can preserve all the old times. The database can automatically do all the rounding off of new times. No need to do them at the competition venue :)
Actually i found a short solution myself:
1. DFR- DFL+ DFR+ DFL+
2. DFL- DFR+ DFL+ DFR-
This shortens to a mere 5 turns:
3. DFR- DFL+ DFR- DFL+ DFR-
This sequence can be repeated in several ways for various patterns.
For the mirror solved state we can do:
4. UBR- UBL+ UBR- UBL+ UBR-...
Since the dino cube has neither facecenters nor 3-color corners - there are 2 possible solutions to the puzzle. 2 opposite faces can "change" by performing 4 piece swaps, involving 8 of the total 12 pieces. But i do not know of a short way to go from one solved state to the other. Can...
As the poster said later:
Russell Heimlich responded on February 9th, 2011:
Ha, you’re right! I never noticed that. I wish the CSS spec was more specific about border styles. They can be all over the place across browsers.
I guess it works in most browsers. I haven't tried.
Actually it's more of a taboo to talk abpout KO puzzles at the twistypuzzles forum, especially because lots of the people there actually are puzzle designers and not solely (speed)solvers. Anyway, there are a few suppliers of 6x6x6 and 7x7x7 that you can find with a little searching. Mostly they...
