Ok so, me and Joey were messing about with 2x2x2 today and came up with an ortega varient where you can skip the PBL step every single time.

The method is basically the same as ortega, except with two main differences.

1) Instead of making a face like you do in ortega, you make a layer instead.

2) Instead of doing OLL, you learn all the algorithms to orientate and permute the last four corners at the same time. It's believed that this number is less than 100 - I can't think of a good name for it right now but because it's a lot of algs we named the method "OrtegaZB".

That's all you need to do and this will force a skip of the PBL.

Not yet, but I'm going to generate some examples with acube and see if they're short or good to execute.

Also, I might make a table for what I now call "OrtegaZBFF". This is the special subset of the first face I decribe in the method that reduces the number of algs you have to learn.
