### Rubix's cube

I've just solved a 3x3x3 in 93s (without any skipped layers) and was proud of it........I know most of you can probably do it 3 times faster, so please brag your records here in this topic.

### Re: Rubix's cube

haha...if you only knew how much manu and elmar talk about cubing in the irc chat...

my best time is 40s, i have another 5 sub50s and was able to get sub60s every now and then...avg close to 65s.

unfortunately my 3*3 cube broke and i just ordered new cubes today - another 2 weeks without any speedcubing

but then i will have 2*2-5*5

do you use your own algs?

i use my own for f2l (which means i'm very slow there) and then 2lookOLL and 2lookPLL from the fridrich method

### Re: Rubix's cube

I don't know understand any cube terms like OLL LR'U'D etc.etc. I just learned a very easy, 6 steps, beginner method at first and after that figured out myself how i could reduce to number of rotations for each step. Do'nt expect any fancy moves...lol, I don't even hold the cube correctly and rotate layers with my whole hand instead of 1 finger.

### Re: Rubix's cube

since today i have 2*2*2, 3*3*3, 4*4*4 and 5*5*5 cubes...

did a few solves on the 2*2 cube: ~45s (but i don't really have some algs - i'm using some of those ronny uses)
the 3*3 speedcube is nice: after more than 1 month without any cubing i'm already almost as fast as before
4*4 is still kinda tough for me, did 1 solve with looking up my 5 algs in a little more than 20min

i do not yet dare to try the 5*5 cube, i want 3-5min on the 4*4 first

I don't have a Rubix cube, but I've solved them online and it usually takes me over a minute... I'd be much faster if I took the time to learn better methods and found my own cube lol.

### Re: Rubix's cube

megaminx is fun too...

got my first one this monday and am already down to 5min 40s (still have to look up 2 algs, but actually i haven't spent any time at all yet to learn them)

anyone else into megaminx?

other puzzles (i also bought square1 and supersquare1 - but i'll leave them untouched untill i'm better at megaminx)

### Re: Rubix's cube

Sorry for the bump...does any one have any tips for memorizing the OLL algs? I have about 20 of them and know 1-look PLL but my OLL takes forever...
And since it seems everyone's posting their scores, I have a 27.37 with sune OLL and I think 3-edge PLL (can't remember).
