Very incredible.

I can't believe you gave up after spending over a minute and a half memorizing that last one, though. I could never do that. (Especially considering a success would have meant a "clean" average.) Maybe that's why I never get very fast.

Thinking about it now, I probably shouldn't have given up. But my reasoning at the time was: @1:00 - oh wait, something isn't right.. @1:20 - but the first few center cycles are right...wha? @1:30...oh god...can I really execute this in under 1:40? Can I even remember the wing cycles? I'lll need another 30s.. God knows, not worth the effort. But it would've been a good exercise for practicing recall maybe, who knows.

But ta everyone :) I'm starting to actually enjoy 4BLD now!

How much do you even practise? Maybe I should start trying AO5s.
I don't really practice 4BLD, I just got fast from doing 5BLD. As soon as I got a decent cube I started getting sub-3's, so I might have to start practicing 4BLD properly. It's also a good warm-up for 5BLD - after a few 4BLD attempts my accuracy jumps up to +50% and sub-7's are easy :)
