Re-discovered the cube after giving up on it in as a 12"ish" year old kid in the 80's. Picked up one mid Nov. 2006 at a toystore while X-mas shopping for the kids. Solved it for the 1st time ever w/the 7-step method and memorized it within 3-days. As of Jan 07 I can solve a 3x3 in around a minute, can solve the 4x4 & 5x5 & I'm trying to memorize the Square-1 and Megaminx algs. I now see puzzling as a great form of mental exercise as well as just wholesome clean-ol' fashioned fun ;-)
