Cube Flag (Jul 04, 2007)

Cube Flag

Since I live in America, I suppose I should be patriotic… Well, I’ll use this opportunity to show off my cool Cube Flag! (Huge – 6000×4500)

Here’s an animation.
This is based on (actually, taken from) my animated US Open logo. Made with POV-Ray, of course. (Source code will be up in a few years. :-)

Waltzing Cube and Alg Display (Jun 26, 2007)

A lot of updates are missing here…

Anyhow, I created a synchronized “Waltzing Cube” animation.
I also implemented an alg display feature (actually, two) as a Firefox search engine.

MGLS (Jun 15, 2007)

The end of school was disastrous and unreasonable, but it kept me busy. And today in the morning I should have left for the US Open and the Origami USA convention :-(

Anyhow, I finished the MGLS pages today -my publication of a last-slot variation that Macky invented and I developed into a fully usable method (it’s now my speedcubing method).

Here are optimal solutions to all the PLLs. Note the surprising 9-move HTM solution to the Y. (April Fools’! It’s 13 moves.)

Speed BLD Guide (Mar 28, 2007)

No update to this page in over two months! I’ve been setting more records, though: I’m finally sub-20 (on a good average).

I worked on a speed BLD guide for two weeks (it’s finally up!), after working to get the record.

The results of the Belgian Open are posted. I’ve never been so amazed…

And I wanted to get the third official sub-2 BLD! Oh well; hats (center caps?) off to Mátyás!
And congratulations to Vandenbergh (no offense meant to Fung)!

Caltech Winter 2007 (Jan 13, 2007)

Caltech Winter was great :-) I got a few sub-20′s :-), but DNF’ed all BLD’s ;-( 4x4x4 and Magic were cancelled :-(

My dad caught Dan Dzoan’s world record one-handed solve on video:
Low Quality (pretty good)
Medium Quality
The high quality video is at a corresponding URL; it’s 70 MB, so only download if you really want it.
My 18.18
My one-handed 39.69
