Like 4 years ago, I'm organising a two-days competition in Lyon on September 24-25.
Website is here. Most events will have two rounds. And there will be money for the top 3 of 3x3x3 !
Hope to see many cubers there.
Following the work of Stefan (http://www.speedsolving.com/forum/showthread.php?20492-Blonk-numbers-and-Center-of-the-Cubieverse), I wanted to derive some visuals of this.
My graph is defined as:
- the vertices are all the competitors who did at least 20 competitions (data from ~one...
A/ One piece at a time
A1/ Side effect on corners only - long setups

Recently I worked again on my 4x4 optimal solver for it to be easier to use.
Here it is : http://perso.ens-lyon.fr/clement.gallet/optimal444.zip
Sorry for (almost) all windows users, it uses special librairies (ext/hash_set). Maybe someone could compile it to work on Windows, I...
Here is 12 videos of a 3x3 solve with only the hands and the cube : http://perso.ens-lyon.fr/clement.gallet/quiz_mains/
Your job is to find who is who.
Sorry, this is a little french oriented.
A new one-day competition in Clermont-Ferrand (center of France) will take on 20th December : http://www.worldcubeassociation.org/results/c.php?i=ClermontOpen2008
Among other events, no inspection and team blindfold events !
It will use the new feature of registering via the...
I'm glad to announce the French Open 2009.
It will be on 14-15 of March.
We have tried to make this competition a special one, as it will stand inside the Disneyland complex ! So feel free to invite with your husbands, wifes, friends with you.
Here is the website ...
Here is how you can permute and orient top layer corners on the 3x3. Note that it works also very well on the megaminx !
Let's assume I'm a white cross cuber (which I'm not !!!)
First, the algorithm :
While one corner is not good, do :
1/ Do Ux to bring this...
Maybe someone speak about this before :
I was thinking, it IS possible to do a 2-cycle of edges... if you don't look at the centers !
For exemple :
It swap UF and UB
So we could build up a blindfold method using this, and there is no parity !
