It would be nice if both the PLL trainer and OLL trainer both just had a scroll bar. Should be simple to implement... I dunno if this is still being worked on though...

Yes. It does mean standard deviation. I was able to download the trainer as well. Apparently, the link has been fixed.

If you don't feel like reading the article then...

tl;dr STD (...) is pretty much a calculation of how close your times are together. Having a low standard deviation means you are getting consistent times/whatever is being measured. In other words, your times are very close to your average. A high one is exactly the opposite.

There's a way to calculate by hand an SD of something, but I'm 99% sure that's on Wikipedia.
