~~~ [prev] [up] Subject: Re: The Pyramid

Nourse's new book "The Simple Solutions to Cubic Puzzles" has a pyramid
solution. Aside from the (almost) obvious stuff about the little and big portions
of each corner, it has specific macros for moving edge pieces from any edge
position to the top-front (he solves it with a flat surface up), and for flipping an
edge in place (actually a pair of edges, but the second one is by design an edge
not yet solved). Then there are two macros that jumble the edges of the bottom
large corner until it is right. The solution is simple to follow as a cookbook
operation, but not so simple to memorize, involving several macros rather than
one or two that many people are using.
