I thought I'd share this with the forum before other people do.
I think he deserves credit for what he did.
(I can at least understand and comprehend the profound effort he placed into this.)



If you've seen me on facebook, or in person, I've spoken about this guy before.

I'll tell the story, Dr. Morley Davidson, learned FULL ZBLL along with other cases for 1LLL and tripod for the sake of mathematical inquiry and for FMC.

He has his own memory method separate from myself, and uses move optimal algorithms.
I've had dinner and lunch with him, and from what I've gleaned from his memory/organizational system, is that he's put more work than I have into the method.
We both worked completely independent from eachother, and before last weekend at US Nationals 2010, we were completely oblivious of the other's existence.

He also has MANY ideas about 1LLL, and I don't want to spoil all of it.
It's a mind****.



Personally, I'm pretty shaken up.
I'm disappointed that I lose my uniqueness, but I think the forum should know.
Hopefully, this is a sign that ZBLL is becoming a bit more "mainstream"(tongue in cheek), and that in the future, there will be more people using it.

I'll do something big.
Or at least try.
I'll be unique again. :d

He looks at the permutation of the pieces, and it's much slower than mine.
Then, using the permutation of the pieces, he refers to a subset, and then a "phrase of words" which he decodes into notation for the algorithm.

(And I thought my method was slow.)

yourblog said:
This guy’s achievement deserves credit.

Even though it completely derails my accomplishments, I concede.

.

There are at least 2 people with the title, “Mister ZB” now.

I’m considering something ambitious, but unsure. Mister Anthony know of my plan.

Who knows? I might get attention for something else.

I’d hope so.
:eek:
(yah I read your blog a lot :p)
Tell us, please :D

Hmm... so is he going to start using your recog now? >_< This is crazy.

He has his own memory method separate from myself
Hmm? Explain please :D

Edit: Chris, anti-ZBLLs? Why do Ron and Zbigniew Zborowski get the credit for this :p.

If I can't get a sub-15 average in my next competition, I'm going to switch back to CFOP. (If I had stuck with CFOP since last year, i would be averaging around 12-13 this year. Dx)

If I do switch to CFOP, I will learn FULL OLLCP.

He's not interested in speed, just the math and the FMC.

He has his own memory method separate from myself
Hmm? Explain please :D

His memory method?

He tells a story for some algorithms, and notation for the algorithm are encoded in "words/phrases".
He gave an example with Narnia.
This way, it's compressed into his mind, and he just extracts the algorithm from those compressed information bits.

(If you were referring to my memory method, I do a similar "compression" of information, but I don't want to give out my method, or lots of people will go around memorising algorithms, lmao. xD)

Edit: Chris, anti-ZBLLs? Why do Ron and Zbigniew Zborowski get the credit for this :p.
LOLOL, I don't know, I'll tell him, and maybe he might rename it to whatever he wants. xD

Ahhhh, I'll see for myself next competition.

US Nationals really made me doubt myself.
It was really embarassing getting crap times for the first 3 solves.
After switching to CFOP halfway through the average, and getting 2 14s effortlessly, it really, really put things into perspective.

I didn't even make it to second round.

IMO, you just have to keep pushing it. Practice practice blah blah You'd be the first know it won't be easy =/.

BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!
Wait... Don't believe in yourself, believe in me who believes in you!

This post has 3 seperate references to the same anime o_O

>Don't believe in yourself, believe in me who believes in you!

so i herd u liek TTGL

It's a good anime, honestly, but I think it's overrated.
The fanbase has a very good portion of annoying manchildren, and the haters are composed of people who expect Evangelion.

i enjoyed it for the twists (Damn you Rossiu. D:<) and the GAR, but otherwise, I don't think it deserves it's status as a top tier anime.

I rated low on MAL to troll the fanbase, but I think it's a 8/10 anime.
I really didn't like the supporting cast, it's far too crazy for me.
The main characters though were excellent.



Which 1LLL subsets does this guy actually know?

Unsure.
He mentioned it, but I didn't inquire.

It really was great :D
It was probably so good for me because it was break from all the romance and moe D:. Switching things up= better experience.
