Wanted to post this reconstruction -- this solve was #8 in that 1:48 ao12 I posted yesterday

1:32 on 24 algs, with 47 memo and 45 exec. Thats my fastest ever time/alg in exec! I framecounted the exec as 45.3, so that's 1.89 time/alg, and after reconstructing I found it was 5.03 stps :D I think thats my first time getting over 5 stps in 4bld

Lol ok another 4bld post...

I immediately ended my 4bld session yesterday after finishing that 1:48 ao12. Today I started up again, and got 6 straight successes, the first 5 being a 1:37 pb mo3 and 1:40 pb ao5 and rolled the ao12 to 1:44.45 lol.

Idk if that should count cus like it's done on separate days? but heres the times and stuff anyway

For my old pb from a few years ago, I was using the 'bad' center buffers Ubr and UR. I switched to Ubl and UL end of last year/early this year.

Feels good to beat my old pb using the new 'good' center buffers.

Just a quick note -- I think most fast bigBLDers nowadays would agree that all U face center buffers are equally good. :p

I got my first 3BLD success today! After 278 DNFs (that hurt to say), I finally got it. It was 5:38.86. Soon I will be the next Stanley Chapel. LOL
i got my first solve with 11 DNFs, 2 weeks ago, the time was 14:49.48
and since my first attempt so far I've managed to solve 10 times within 55 attempts, with a PB of 5:45.38. ( your first pb was 5:38 :eek:)


your first solve was really fast, i guess, good job and keep going!!

95/100 multi-blind in 2 hours, 7 minutes, and 55(+) seconds!

I estimated the time to be around 2:15-2:30, so I'm really happy with how this turned out. One DNF by an M slice though lol, so that's a little frustrating. Will post the video sometime later today :)

Edit:
Oh yea, also, memo was 1:32:19, and exec was 35:34 :) really didn't expect to get 21.34 exec/cube lol, especially considering 30 of the cubes I used are soooooo terrible for 3style solving
