I rewrote the ortega and Guimond tutorials from erik's site(so i could learn them a bit easier). I made new pictures and put them in a word doc.
There is not alot of text, but the pictures speak for them self i think.
I hope you can use it, and you like it :)
There in english. But i also have them in Dutch.

If you'd like to take them out of proprietary Microsloth format and publish them in HTML, I can give you space on my server.

I like the way you've diagrammed the PLL, I think it's easier to understand than the isomorphic diagrams on the site I was using.

I'll PM you in the morning with a login. I can register a domain for you if you come up with something that you like and is available, otherwise I can just give you a URL that would look like "http://www.brunson.com/martijn" or whatever you like.

i dont understand ortega do u permute the first layer straight after u have one colour right?
The Ortega method's first step is solving one side of the cube. The pieces do not have to be permuted correctly.

Then you solve, or orient the opposite side. It does not have to be permuted correctly.

The last step is permuting the entire cube.

Which side is right and which side is wrong? What? After you orient the top side, then you are ready to move onto the permuting step.

Which cube to permute? You are solving more than one cube with the Ortega Method? What? You permute both faces that you have oriented, a.k.a. the entire cube.

If you really don't understand, watch a video tutorial on YouTube.

Well first of all ortega shouldn't take more then one cube, so you should be permutating the cube in your hand. Second, I suggest you look at the alg diagrams and you should see what you need to do.
