wdym formula?
Formula used to be the term that Algorithm now is.
Algorithm took over about 2010, 2009 is when you can still see a lot of Formula usage.
Cubers that have been around for a while but stopped cubing regularly years ago can also be found saying Formula.
Shepherd I think still does, to be fair I haven't seen him write for at least 5 years.

So, I inserted your formula R' F R2 F' U2 F' U2 F R' (U2) into my webpage which is called (drum roll) *Formula* Analyzer, and the result is that this alg could be used for OLL 50 but also CLL G1, and that in my database I have a different algorithm having exactly the same effect on the cube: R' F R2 B' R2' F' R2 B R' (U2)
My feeling was that your alg is better than the one in my database since it uses 3 faces only instead of 4 and it avoids the ugly B (but I am less convinced after trying both). anyway, thank you for that.

And according to me, discovering (or re-discovering algs) is always good, and there is no reason why we would avoid the pleasure of these aha! moments. ;)
