2-7 bld relay DNF by 2 corners at 6x6
2-5 and 7x7 were solved. Only 2 pieces, f**k.
I didn't do the corner parity alg, because I execute corners first and it is easy to forget about parity. Usually I use Oliver's tip: cross legs if I have parity, but this time I didn't do it for some reason.
The time was 1:39:04.50[1:02.57.08]

Damn, that's one of the most brutal DNFs you can get :(

Good attempt though!

2/6 MBLD (in 38min)

I think I made every damn possible mistake I could make.
From what I remember, these were the mistakes:
-Not seeing flipped edge
-executing incorrectly, probably not correct order
-Mistaking a twisted corner for being a regular letter (memorisation mistake)
-incorrectly memorising or recalling audio memo on 3BLD cube.

3 of the DNFs were only 2-3 pieces off, except the execution mistake which was pretty far off.
