At Summer Camp last week I taught someone how to solve a 4x4x4 using Reduction Method. Even better: he had absolutley no idea how to do a 3x3x3 until then. Last year at camp I taught someone else how to solve the cube and now he's got his own collection going.

The FTO, chess puck and hungarian rings were all done quite soon, now to tackle the 10 billion barrel :shock:

I just did my first ever Teraminx solve, and I didn't do as well as I wanted to. I got around an hour and 27 minutes, but I wanted it to be under an hour. Oh well, I used a different method, so next time I'll try and do it the normal way.

On this site there is a 4-dimensional maze. Well, I figured out how to work it and what do you know?

Yay! 2x2x2 PB Average - It would put me 3rd in the World!

Best Time: 1:91 seconds
Worst Time: 5:02 seconds
Average: 2:78 seconds!!!

Times: 1.91, 3.78, 2.23, 2.33, 5.02

Say I had a decent time, say 2:78 seconds, (the actual average) instead of the 5:02, my average would be joint first with Rowe's official average of five!

Probably not a big deal but, I've managed to solve a 2x2x4 ShenShou. Since it's a relatively new puzzle, it's always rewarding and challenging to solve a new puzzle with your own methods and knowledge from solving previous puzzles :P .

I solved Okamoto's Latch Cube. As far as I know I'm the first person to do so. Unfortunately I smeared his signature, though I was trying very hard not to. :(

Yay! first time that I get to post in this thread, and it's for two different puzzles which is an additional bonus for me. First, on the 4x4, I finally got a sub 1:30 average of 5, and I don't normally care for 4x4, and I normally average around 1:45ish. And for 3x3, I got a 13.48 single, non-lucky.

I solved my teraminx with a layer-by-layer method. It wasn't worth it and it took like 5 hours longer than usual.

I have done 17 second averages back when I cubed every day. but today I am not that fast anymore. I wanna get at it again.

Keeping away from cube rotation. ("multi angle insertion mapping")
more f2l shortcuts maybe.
I need to learn 5 olls I think I found out I dont have anymore.. :roll:
regular practice..

my goal for now would be a sub 15 average.

OK! I can still get sub20 averages!!

look here:
21.22 21.09 18.66 19 (22.89) 20.58 20.72 20.09 19.78 (16.42) 19.86 18.88
nothing else but a 19.99 second average...

After neglecting it for months and only being able to solve one layer, I can now solve the 2x3x3. Although my times could do with a little work.

Got a sub-30 solve on Ryan Heise's simulator for 3x3x3. http://hi-games.net/cube-3x3x3/watch?u=3930.

Note: I just started on the simulator yesterday.

::EDIT:: Haha, make that a sub-25. :D. Multislotting FTW! ::EDIT:

Average of 5: Sub-20. (19.57)

With a Rubik's Icon. That's harder than it sounds.

New PB Pyraminx average of five and single:

Average: 8:06 seconds

Fastest: 4:74 seconds
Slowest: 15:89 seconds

Times: 8.03, 8.64, 15.89, 7.52, 4.74

I really messed up badly on the 15 second solve, and if I was a little less rough with it it would have been sub eight seconds.

I solved the Brillic (Pyraminx Crystal) using a layer-by-layer method. By the time I got to the last layer I figured it'd have been easier to do it as Kilominx then edges, but I was too far to give up...

Finally! After months and months of trying, I finally got a sub 1 4x4x4 solve!: 59:30 seconds!

I'm not great at 4x4x4, but that just really cheered me up!

I almost always solve my pyraminx crystal in 'layers'.

Woo! New 4x4x4 single PB!: 53:50 seconds!

I'm certainly improving, as yesterday I got my first sub 1 ever, and then today I've had two sub 1s so far!

There's a shortcut where you twist pieces that have already come out of the end. It's neat.

After a few dozens solves a day for a few weeks, I've gotten my solve time on the 3x3x3 at around 40 seconds. My goal is a 30 second average.

I don't twist any pieces except when they are in the groove, so it looks like I use the full solution (I intend to put up a tutorial in YouTube, just in case someone out there is looking for one and this tutorial features the solution that I used when I solved it in less than one minute).

I despise the spinout. I solved it within 5 minutes the first time, and it stopped being fun.

Try solving it with the pegs alternating up-down or one side-other side or other patterns to break up the boringness. I uploaded the solution that I filmed to YouTube.com.

The shortcut solution can be found here:

Jaap also described the full solution.

After two days, I finally solved the Latch Cube. This cube is evilly hard. In the beginning, I was lucky getting some edges in position.
