Been working on reviewing audio edges less, and making sure I only do one pass. I'm also doing at least one corner comm in most solves, if not more.

1:18.59[28.70], DNF(1:28.41)[40.45], 1:28.26[44.27], 1:21.18[33.91], 1:05.41[30.66]

Ao5 = 1:22.68, Mo3 = 1:18.28

1:05 single was full corner comms and probably execution PB, 1 second off PB. Memo was pretty unremarkable for most of them, I consider sub-30 to be notably good memo. Scramble was B2 U L D' R' L' B U2 F' R B2 U2 L2 D' R2 U R2 F2 U B2 R2 but it's nothing special.
Very nice and good job!

Gee, I realise now that my execution is terrible and my memo is good. I consider a sub-20 memo to be "notably good," and 20-35 to be normal.

I also do audio edges, but like this: the first two pairs are part of a continued sentence from corner memo, and the rest is just gibberish.

What method do you use for edges?

(Geez, my font editor is gone! Sorry for the plain Garamond-less font.)

I just use straight up audio pairs, no linking them to corners, then M2 for execution. Also, for what it's worth, I prefer the normal font - it was a bit jarring to have random posts from a thread in a different font for no clear reason.

I use TuRBo for 3BLD and M2 for 4BLD and 5BLD. Maybe you should try linking?

I guess you're right. Since I'm trying to make the switch from TuRBo to commutators, I might as well switch from Garamond to plain.

Slowly getting more confortable with comms. This one was nice (even with slow turning).

1:02.35[40.02] (11/7) F R2 L2 B L U2 F' D' F' R2 F2 L2 U L2 D' B2 U' R2 U2 F2

6/8 (75%) of the full cycles were with comms :)
probably around 80% most of the time, but some days it's more like 50% or lower
I am envious of both of you.

Okay I'll make sure my next post in here is actually an accomplishment.

First sub-minute. Just trying to turn like hell and got a nice enough scramble.

55.70[22.72] F' R2 B' D2 B' D2 L2 B2 U2 B2 L' U2 R B' L D' L2 R

Both memo and execution are close to, if not actually, PB.

5BLD - 6:00.29 [1:56]

This is only an accomplishment because of the memo, I failed x-center execution because I tried to remember a missing word near the end, only to realize there wasn't actually a word I was missing. Also, the scramble wasn't very good (6 centers solved total).
edit: followed by 5:50.57 [2:18], 3rd best ever but should have been even faster

First 'proper' BLD session in a while (like the old days).

5:08.81, 4:34.17, 4:47.93, 4:38.34, DNF(4:49.00) = 4:51.69 Ao5

Come at me, Cale.

lol just did a 2BLD using full comms and flipped a corner with the sune/anti sune. I know and use OP/M2 and am trying to switch to Comms/M2. It was untimed, btw .
