I admit it: I'm a total geek. I love electronics, programming, 3D art, vintage Apple hardware, and whisky. I'm always juggling half a dozen projects. I also enjoy documenting it all: my successes, my failures, my experiences... and everything geeky along the way.

New 4x4 and 5x5 Speed Cubes

I picked up some new speed cubes. I wasn't really happy with my last 4x4. I picked it up on a whim since my 10 year old wanted a 2x2 and a 3x3. Take it from me. Don't start off with a cheap junky cube. Spend the money up front and start off with a great cube.. Read More...

My First 4 x 4 Speed Cube

My son wants to get into speedcubing too. I picked up a 2x2 and a 3x3 for him. I wasn't going to buy myself anything, but I just couldn't resist picking up a 4x4 while I was at it. Read More...

Valk 3 Speed Cube

It's been about 3 months since I picked up the Gans 356 Air Master. I've done several hundred solves on it and I love it. When I was first shopping for a speed cube, it was a toss up between the 356 Air and the Valk 3. The main reason I went with the Gans was because it's what Feliks Zemdegs used to break the last World Record. However, I was really curious to see if I made the right choice. Is the Valk 3 better?

The Gans 356 Air Master

I've been cubing for exactly a month now. While I'm no speedcuber, I'm still pretty proud of the fact that I've been able to go from never solving a cube before, to having a 12-solve average of 2:10 and a best time of 1:29 just using the layer-by-layer method. I don't think I will be able to solve it in under a minute without learning some more advanced techniques, or getting a faster cube. I could learn new algorithms until the cows come home, but at the end of the day the fact still remains... there's only so fast you can turn a stock Rubik's cube.

I Can Solve a Rubik's Cube!

I've been bitten by the bug! I can't stop solving this cube! Read More...
