Corbets Tey School

A friend at work has set up a website for the PFA of the local school. He's trying to get the search engines to pick it up but hasn't had any luck yet. :(

So, I'm adding a link to the Corbets Tey School here in the hope that it makes it into the search engine and all the parents and friends can find it!

Does classical music help your gaming?

Some people are just too obsessed with arcade games. Pretty impressive nonetheless, and I love the selection of music.

BTW, I wonder what his final score was?

New best one-handed solve time: 79.87 seconds

I very rarely do one-handed solves, but since competing in this event at Worlds I've realised that it's more fun than it looks.

I don't use my regular speedsolving method for one-handed cubing because I can't remember the majority of the last layer algorithms when there's only one hand solving. I basically just use a beginner method. If I re-learnt all the 3-look LL algs one-handed then I'd probably be able to knock quite a bit off my one-handed average.

New personal best time: 20.68 seconds

So close to sub-20s! I really thought this time it was going to be it, but when I looked down at the timer I saw 20.68s.

I'm still here

Sorry about the lack of posts over the past week or so. I've been at the Rubik's World Championships. I had a fantastic time and did a lot of cubing (obviously!) Will post properly about this later.
