For the record, Erno^H" Rubik is the hungarian teacher of
architecture and design at some Budapest equivalent_high_school
, who invented the Cube. Apparently he has a solution,
but it is not a particularly good one. I would also like to add to
ALAN's note that given my method or ALAN's method, I have never
seen either take longer than 5 minutes (I promise clocked
solutions in under 4 and have taken much less) and Singmaster
has heard of solutions in 2 minutes, but I find this difficult to believe.

I think I can also assert that most of the certified Cubemeisters
did NOT use a computer in solving it, although it can be of great help.

For the record for the purposes of this list, my algorithm
is implemented in the :CUBE program that runs on all ITS's.
