- Hey, this is mostly for Techers (students at Caltech)... we need to hold some meetings
in order to get recognized as a club. I think our main priority right now is to design a
good webpage. The cubing community lives through the internet and if we can
design a good page, then we have a better chance of being known and attracting
other people. Lars Petrus gets around 400+ hits a day because of his beautiful
solution and stuff. I'm thinking a solution page would be one of the pages... in
addition to some other stuff.
Of course, I can't do this alone... I've never really designed pages before. So if you're
willing to help contribute a page, definitely let me know. Perhaps we can just spend
and night and design the entire thing... must like you silly frosh do your chem sets on
thursday night. But yeah, I'll try to get some work done on it. Any help would be so
Is there a good time for all of us to meet? It doesn't have to be in person either... if
we can decide who wants to design what in this groups, it would be just as good.
On a side note, I've put in a reservation at noon on April 3 (the weekend after we get
back from spring break) for the Spring Rubik's cube competition. I'll hopefully hear
about the room soon. Even if we get funding, we still have to charge admission.
Otherwise, some weird techers would come and do weird stuff.
Anyway, please.. you guys... you frosh on pass/fail... let's get a good webpage up.
Currently, my "friends" section just has a big picture of Mark and it says "Moldova."
Not too great. Anyway, laters.
P.S. Mike, you're a moron. USING ACETONE FROM CHEM 3! If any of you care to
laugh at Mike, he put his cube pieces in acetone in an effort to make his cube go
- I guess I could write up the solution that I use for the 4x4x4 and
5x5x5. Even though it's really slow, these solutions only require
the memorization of 3 simple algorithms (in addition to the
algorithms needed to solve a 3x3x3 cube). No memorization of parity
problem algorithms needed, there's an easy (but long) way around
And the acetone worked. My cube glides somewhat better than before,
and if it's ever stolen I can match my fingerprints to the ones
etched to the inside of each cubie =)
