Got stuck for corner memo of a cube (couldn't recall 'stip' from the corner memo 'stip jbv'),
so I stopped, but apparently still had some time left for recalling

2 cubes off by a corner twist and 1 cube off by a few edge targets

Also, wasted some energy and time memoing the edges of a cube in the wrong orientation

Getting a lot more sub30 DNFs lately

Gigaminx BLD, finally got a success!
1:09:48.42 [36:15]
This was the seventh attempt, and the first one where my memo was sub-39. The best DNF before this was a 1:19:xy, so there was a big drop in time.

Started trying to get back into BLD. Over the past 2 days I've done 8 untimed attempts, with 5 successes. The DNFs were all close too:

Missed one flipped edge

Shot to Q instead of A on another (traced wrong, was trying to rush)

Did parity, couldn't remember if I'd done parity, so did it again... Also slipped on a set up move near the end, so edges and one corner on the right were an R move off and a couple other corners were off.

Very happy because my accuracy used to be terrible. Going to practice accuracy until I get an official mean, hopefully by the end of the year, then start pushing memo.

4BLD 1:55.10[42.91]
22/16/6, more targets than at my previous PB.
UNR I think and good execution. Reviewing wings 1 time is safe for me, so I will try to not review. That will give me sub-40 memo average, and improving my algs can give sub-2 global. Hopefully I will finish these tasks before the comp at the end of this month.

I "finished" the first draft of my 3style edges list about a month ago, but I knew there were some really terrible comms in there so I never posted it or anything.
Revised it a good bit recently, I think probably something like 70-80% of these could be considered "good" by actually fast people, and the rest aren't terrible either. So I'll share my accomplishment

Although DNFing 5/5 of my attempts in the past couple of days, I seem to be speeding up at 5BLD a ton. Fastest DNFs include:

10:03 by 4 t-centres and 3 x-centres
10:51 by 2 wings and 2 t-centres
13:22 by 2 x-centres (inversed comm) + 3 wings (did targets in wrong order)
16:17 by exec mistake (if you do a Dw, you're left with 2 t-centres and 8 corners ) I ended up a y2 away from my orientation.
17:11 that I can't remember

Memo usually took around 6-7 minutes, but it was ~5:10 for both of the 10s
Very, very happy with the speed improvement, should be able to do more than one solve at UK Champs now

Pretty nice solve with good memo.
Low 30s are getting easier.
Trying to push memo helps a lot.
