About the "Wonderful Barrell". I, too, had been searching for a good notation

and some ideas about how to solve it. I finally found it! James Nourse, author

of 'The Simple Solution to Rubik's Cube' has a new book out entitled 'The

Simple Solution to Cubic Puzzles' (or close to that title). It goes for just $2, and

I picked mine up at a Waldenbooks. It includes a complete solution for the

barrell, as well as the pyramid, the picture cubes, the Missing Link, and some

items about the Rubik Snake. A good deal, but BEWARE of some most

aggravating typographical errors. (I know of two in the barrell solution.)
