I'm thinking about making a timer program and I'd like to add some features that other timers don't have that would be useful. Post here if you have any ideas.
If I decide to make a timer program, I won't be writing it in Java; I'll be using Python. My goal is for the program to be fully...
So, my (a) has weird tension. I can never get it right. One of the sides is always looser than the others, and the other is unbelievably tight. And there seems to be a point at which they cross over to loose or tight and it seems impossible to get them right. anyway, I took out a few of the...
I am using the Guimond tutorial document from this thread: http://www.speedsolving.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5266
I know Ortega, so I understand PBL. I'll try to explain what I'm assuming:
Create 3/4 of a face, where the colors can be opposite. (white+yellow, etc)
Perform OLL alg to finish...
Before someone tells me it's really a double wing flip, I know, cause Charles told me. 8D
But, when I do my OLL parity (and do x to restore the position) it doesn't just flip the edge. It like, swaps the UF and UB wings and flips the UF wing. >_>
When I do the alg bigcubes.com shows...
1. Make sure you are connected to the internet.
2. Look for big I or a fox on a cute blue ball on the place on your computer with all those little icons. Logo may vary.
3. Apply slight pressure to the left side on the clicky thing you hold in your hand while on the computer. Apply...
I use Fridrich on 2x2, and it's slow as heck. I am going to learn Ortega or Stern-Sun. Which one should I learn? If I learn Ortega I would migrate to SS anyway, so I'm wondering if Ortega is even worth learning?
I'm averaging around 33 at the moment. I'm looking for places to improve to break sub-20 average by the end of summer.
Cross (avg of 7): 5.21
F2L (avg of 5): 17.75
2 Look OLL (avg of 5): 4.90
PLL (avg of 5): 6.76
I only used inspection time for the cross.
I have some questions about Cube4You, I'll appreciate if someone can answer any one of them. :)
How much is shipping to the US? Is customer support good if needed? Do items arrive in good condition? About after how long do they come? Do you need an account to order? What are the benefits of...
I'm sure a good amount of us cubers are in school, and we're going to be out for the summer. Some will be out in a few weeks and some already are. What are your cubing goals that you wish to achieve before you go back to school?
I would like:
25ish average on the 3x3
2ish average on the 4x4...
This kid at my school got a cube from Germany recently when his dad visited. It has a yellowish core, arched centers, almost looks like a black DIY. It has nice springs too. But it came with these very weird plastic tiles on it... Anyone know what it could be?
I currently average around 15 seconds using R U R' and similar intuitive moves for the first layer, then OLL and PLL. Should I learn the Ortega method now? I'm not too familiar with 2x2 methods, I hope someone can guide me in the right direction. I can solve a 3x3 40 seconds on avg using 2 look...
OK I've been cubing about... 1.5 months? I average about 45-50 seconds. I use Fridrich F2L and 2-look OLL+PLL. Here is a video of me cubing, can you help me on where to take the next step getting faster?
I want to start learning full OLL+PLL. What...
