I was planning on referring to an old interview by Sillas (Interview with Jessica Fridrich and Zbigniew Zborowski about Feliks Zemdegs), when I realized that it's no longer accessible (all "blog/entry" links too).
Was it removed?
Or probably just not restored when everything went down during...
Interesting... having an explicit EO step, I'd never have expected rotations to be a problem.
Is there no fast rotationless "technique" for the block building?
e.g. Roux 2nd block can be done by limiting the moveset to <M, R, r, U> (and inverses and double turns)
Maybe a similar technique can...
One of the shops listed here or here may have it.
I used a similar approach to find the store where I got my 40000 cst silicone differential oil (and I live in a 3rd world country where a lot of things are hard to find in stores).
I wish they would make a 55mm weilong instead of "the next x-long".
And maybe going down the stickerless route wouldn't hurt either.
I'm still staying with my zhanchi despite wanting the weilong badly, since 57mm cubes make my hands hurt after a while.
And I prefer using a stickerless...
I agree that it seems cumbersome.
Since 3x3 with inspection is still the main event, and no-inspection is only a side event, maybe we can have it open only for 3x3 (with inspection) final round qualifiers. And only a single round.
Sort of an "attraction" type of thing at first, which will...
I personally find the concept of inspection weird.
Especially in a world where many noncubers hide the cube from you when scrambling, as if they think you can actually memorize a hand scramble instantly and do it backwards to solve the cube.
"Solving it in your head", before the timer even...
You don't even need to add a cookie, even just spawning a golden cookie works:
Also, apparently, there's a new upgrade tier, and milk tier.
And dungeons in the beta.
I think just requiring at least 27 stickers is a more accurate "realistic simulation", since you can only normally see at most 3 sides of a cube simultaneously.
(Although seeing the other sides wouldn't hurt)
Back when I was first learning Java, I made a sim (with almost the same controls as...
After barely getting my head around the concept, I have to say that the entire process itself is very fascinating.
If I am understanding this correctly, the computer, given a theoretical lookup table of all cube states, determines the shortest solution for a certain cube state not by having...
I just noticed, if you resize the window, you can get the 3 lines to wrap, and its similar to the original layout (minus the monospace font, so it can get a bit misaligned).
Just in case anyone wants to attempt a solve.
Can I go into the realm of "ugly hacks" and undocumented behavior?
Replaced doc.getbyId(a) with document.body.lastChild
Also removes the id property from the pre tag (is that counted?)
Replace for loop with "for (j in s)".
Seems to work on both Firefox and Chrome.
(I think this would easily...
Weird, if I try to alert out c, I get a "native code" output that makes me think I have the proper function reference.
If I try something like:
Firefox 3.6 and IE8 both give: 91, 111, 98, 106, 101 (instead of 97-101)...
