No that's not a nub question at all. I use the table to serve as my right hand in LSE.
I'll upload a video a bit later, but iirc a man was also recording a couple of my solves, probably with a better camera.

ZZOH works really well, unless you get a OCLL skip and a Gperm?
I came 9th in 5x5...
and along with 4x4 I got some really good averages?
I almost forgot to buy Zhanchis?
The venue was really nice, but got really crowded in some places?
I can't scramble Square-1?
My clock almost has the Dan Sheppard seal of approval?
I didn't get around to watching Cubestormer in action?
I missed all of the NR/ERs, again?
K4 teamsolves are lol (especially with me)?
I went to Hungary and also back in time by 1 year for most events?
I failed clock and pyra, but did well in everything else?
I didn't see anyone get any timer malfunctions?
Pink cube is Pro?

I'll write a more detailed post with DYKs and other stuff tomorrow, but for now I'll just say that I am absolutely knackered and have no voice. I also had my best results in any comp ever probably, with some crazy stuff like 3 antisunes in one 2x2 average (2.88 average), and a 38.97 4x4 single (my actual pb now, and my only sub50 official).
Also, Rob got 6 NRs today :O

Just got home, thanks to everyone (especially Dan- hope your throat gets better soon!) for making this yet another awesome competition!
Kinda disappointed with how I did, though I was happy with clock, and to just get an avg in 5x5. Broke a few PBs as well.
DYK:
I came 2nd in clock?
Sam was so unlucky in clock r1?
Every time I announced something, James tried to get me to do it in my Stewie Griffin voice?
There are too many Chris' and Dans?
Megaminx is becoming one of the UKs most competative events?
I smashed my megaminx PB (overall, not just comp)?
Talking to Dan and Simon in Pizza Express has made me realise I need to learn a lot more about sq-1?
Talking to Dan and Thom in Pizza Express has made me realise I need to learn a lot more about cubing in general?
On Friday Thom got separated from the group on the way back to Charlies and arrived about half an hour later looking like he'd fallen in the canal?
James is sexy and he knows it?
He works out?
Elsie is adorable?
Arnaud was back <3
Luke HG 8.84 :O
Finally a sub-10 for Simon!
We were put on the top floor at the YHA, with no lift and Simon barely able to walk?
I fell asleep at Charlies and woke up with my head completely numb with a beer can balanced on it?
Apparently during the course of my sleep, Mollerz tried to balance it there several times, at one point it fell onto my face and I still didn't wake up?
I hate magic :mad:
It's now been 2 years since my cubing début?
Mollerz deserves a big BLD success?
On Saturday night some rather attractive girls tried to persuade Dan to tutor them in economics?
They loved it when we busted out the cube?
CIDER BOAT!!!?

EDIT: This was the first comp when I've not broken my master magic and needed to borrow someone elses for my avg. My first solve after getting back, I broke it.

DYK:

Flan goes to the same uni as me and I did not know (deffo going to be having some meetups)
Team "sexy and we know it" pwned
I made an absolute fool out of myself in the timer race
Chris Wall recons he is better than me at Mega (he probably is, I feel bad because he probably deserved 2nd place in mega)
My results were resonably good
JDL recons that he has the best/smoothest 7x7 in the world
5BLD is really fast
Apparently I am too modest
I love the fact that Tim? busts out the retro cubes eastsheen and what not
I taught William magic, he found it so fun he could not put it down
Me and Leon were doing some hard core master magic practice
