I'm so glad!
Btw, I'm counting the sub-10 solves I do this year, so far I've done 9, this is the ninth of course, and also the fastest one.

Curious fact: my first sub-9 solve of the year was also a sub-8! (not sub-40320, iykwim)

Another reconstruction...
This was a solve with a worser than awful technique, but still was a quite fast one.

Just... XCross in 12 moves, but with 5 rotations XD
Also, the movecount is amazing. 1 move less than my 7.60 above.

7.88 3x3 solve

Another great solve:

14th sub-10 of the year, & 2nd sub-8, & 2nd sub-9.

------
I have done two sub 9s this year, but both of them were 7.xy! That's so great.
