~~~ ~~~ [up] Subject: confusion but simplicity

I do not use a computer but I found it useful in keeping track of
moves and testing various transformations. I can fix the cube
now in 5 minutes or less. In fact, I have won cubes at
stores by challenging the owner to a
freeby if I can do it under 10 or 15 minutes. My transformations are
very easy to remember because after one face is complete I need only 4
to fix the cube. The transformations are positioning the corners, toppling
them, fixing edges and then toppling edges. These are not designed for
speed but for simplicity. I have taught some people to solve the cube this
way with a few hours of practice. To do it in 5 minutes, however, requires
a few more transformations.
