~~~ ~~~ [up] Subject: report on DC area cube contest

Hecht's (a local dept. store chain) offerred $100 gift certificate to
any one who could get the cube done in 5 minutes (and T-shirts promoting
the cube to anyone getting 1 face right in that time), for a 4-hour period
last Saturday...I was the 7th to get the cube done (there were a bunch of
mathematicians from the University of Maryland there before me)...the store
took everyone's name & address & social security numbers...haven't heard
anything from them yet, though...there may have been more solvers after
I left. --Mark
