Facebook is actively harmful to society
Forums make ongoing discussions much easier to follow, and they stick around for a long time giving them enduring value. Reddit and Facebook are much more immediate, like real-time conversations, and if you aren't part of them when they happen, then they might as well have not even happened because they just sort of disappear into the digital aether.
I am 54. But getting faster all the time. Most solves under 50s. And new PB @ 30.xx today. 5s faster than old. Too few solves are fast / timed.I'm 55, and my fingers are just not flexible enough to do much in way of finger tricks, which is why I tend to concentrate on big cubes, although having said that, about 1 in 15 of my 3x3 solves is now below 1m.
Way back in the early 80s I did get a sub 1m on the dreaded Rubiks brand though.
Started cubing in December. Learned CFOP/4LLL. And then switched to Roux. The CMLL algorithms are all transferable from 4LLL, but changed to another adjacent swap algorithm.Update. Just watched CriticalCubing's video on why he switched to Roux from CFOP (Click here for video), and also JPerm's video on why he stayed with CFOP after 2 months with Roux. It's so interesting to hear their stories and have their insights. The video again confirm that for older people just starting out, Roux should be considered early, before hard habits form. Roux means a more difficult start and need patience (than the daisy LBL method) for beginners, but is apparently just what I need compared to CFOP (which is very easy at the start but gets scary later with the amount of algorithms and cases to memorise). Just something from a beginner with 3 months' experience.
