There is some discussion going on between the delegates about changing multi bld format, lowering the limit (which is 60 min today).
What is your opinion about this? Should the format be changed from 60 min max to a lower time? If so, what would be a good limit?
We're working on a project for a competition manager for the WCA. There are some systems already, each has advantages and disadvantages.
We would like people who work with data entry at competitions to help us here, with ideas to make it as effective and simple as possible...
I'm posting here to see if someone else experienced something similar.
At Oficina Open we had many timer issues, with 0.05, 0.21, 0.34, etc. The problems seemed to disappear after we disconnected the displays from the timers...
At Agulhas Negras Open, for logistical reasons, no displays...
I've seen Stefan post this somewhere else, but couldn't find it here.
The idea is quite simple: just tape a sheet of paper to your blindfold. It will cover you vision down to your neck, so there's no need for the judge to hold a paper.

So a friend showed me this:
Apparently they took the non-memory-or-data-port timers and put the cable jack.

We had a great competition, with many SARs (including 7.78 single and 10.67 avg on 3x3).
The FM scramble was:
U2 L' R' B2 R' B L' R2 U2 L' R F L' D L' F R U2 R'
Carlos Alberto de Alcântara Jr found this 30-moves solution:

I got one for my girlfriend, and it came apart.
From what I could see (I was driving, so it wasn't much), it has some clear-plastic pieces on the inside, something that looks like a core and a piece attached to it (with a screw). Doesn't seem to have springs.
I don't have it right now, but if...
I've installed the program and created a database in my webhost, but I can't connect to it
I get an error message about a pg_hba.conf file, which I don't know how to edit and/or create.
Can anyone help me on how exactly to fill the information when adding a new server?
I had the idea to do this PLL statistics analysis.
If you would like to help me, just take note of which PLL you had in an excel file, in lines of 5. This is to make it easier to join data from a lot of people.
For the PLLs with more than one case, follow this "rule":
left = 1, right...
My mom would like to visit Paris after the WC in Dusseldorf, so I was looking for prices for train rides, but couldn't find (even with the help from Rama and Erik)
does any of you more experienced train-travelers know how much it would cost to go Dusseldorf - Paris - Dusseldorf? (oct 12th -...
Well, you probably know that square-1 is the biggest problem when it comes to scrambling in competitions...
pretty much everyone who can scramble it decently is competing, so unless you have Bob to scramble, you can get some trouble...
I made a simple program to invert a scramble, so you...
