LBSAN-NG-SMA-NG-LOOB-COZ-STUCK-sa-SUB-XXsecs. THREAD

Post by marc_rendl on Sat Feb 23, 2008 6:34 pm

i know we all share the same problem in cubing.. as similar as in making a poem.. sometimes i just don't feel the CUBE NIRVANA... i really get stubborn in memorizing algos... specially when i have a bad cubing day (like getting a 28second-average when i know im sub-25 or when i get a single solve of 3x.xx secs). i am opening this thread because i think we all need encouragement when problems like these arise.. gusto kong malaman ninyo na di kayo nag-iisa.. na lahat tayo nagkakaron din ng inflection point in cubing.. na lahat tayo bumabagal as x approaches the limit of the logarithmic learning curve of cubing.. [masyado na akong naiimpluwensyahan ng math sa mga terminologies ko ah.. hehe]

for the 4-5 months i've been slow in improving in speedcubing (stuck at sub-24-to-26for a month) here are 2 main reasons:

1)ACAD MODE - - -
mahirap ang university life ng isang math major... i mean i know everyone's university/professional/family life is hard... and cubing isn't the only thing in our life...2 math at 1 physics ang pinagaaralan ko ngayong semester [nag-aalangan pa grade ko sa physics]... waaaahhh... kailangan mag-praktis.. kailangan magkabisado ng definition, theorems, formulas, at kung paano naderive ang mga formulas at theorems - - - what we call "PROOF" in mathematical terms. kala nio ba walang kinakabisado ang mga math majors??? hehe... tanungin nio rin si ynajatrice kung ilang formula, theorem, definition at proof ang pinagdaanan namin [haha hindi ko na matandaan ung iba.. kaya sure akong di niya mabibilang.. haha].. and to think we are not halfway done thru our mathematics course... hehe...

minsan naisip ko na sana nag-cube nalang ako simula noong High School.. kasi mas madali pa noon ang ginagawa noong High School... (BABALA MGA HIGH SCHOOL PALANG:magcube na kayo ng magcube habang may oras pa... buwahahaha)

ang encouragement ko na lang sa sarili ko:kailangang tapusin ko ang math para pagdating sa undergrad research ko sa 4th year ay dapat tungkol sa cube tapos yung acknowledgement part isasama ko yung PCA .. hehe... jumel (ynajatrice).. wag ka gaya ng thesis ko ah.. hehe...

2)SELF-CENTERED CUBING [bagong category SC Category.. HAHA] - - - for almost a month i've been using cube explorer FOR 2 REASONS:

A)SARILING STYLE: in finding new PLL algorithms and finding new fingertricks (to find more suitable fingertricks for myself... and uhm..trying to find algos that i can call MINE).. i wanted to start from scratch and prove to myself na di lang ako isang dakilang leech/magnanakaw/mangongopya/whatever ng mga algorithms pagdating sa cubing.. gusto kong magkaron/hanapin ang sarili kong style ng cubing. gusto kong kapag nanalo ako, may sarili akong paraan. ayaw kong ikatwiran sakin na kaya ako mas mabilis ay dahil gamit ko ang method ni bob burton, o ni dan harris, ni Macky, ni Nakajima or ni Whatever [ulit.. sino ba si whatever.. sikat ba ito??? haha]

kaya lang nawalan ako ng gana sandali sa paghahanap ng fingertricks dahil nalaman ko recently na ang v-perm at f-perm namin ni bob burton ay parehas lang, nagkaiba lang sa fingerticks kasi kaliwete ako... waaaahhh

isipin mo, mayron kang sariling style na naimbento mo, na akala mo sariling algo mo tapos ganun lang pala kadaling makita sa internet??? parang sayang sa oras yun ano.

bilib ako kay Erik Akkersdijk kasi may sarili syang mga algos/fingertricks... gusto kong maging tulad niya... hehe

B)invention of a NEW METHOD:
mayron akong gustong magawang fridrich variant na similar ang goals sa COLL, but instead, i want to simplify the process, making it more intuitive [hindi ko pa alam kung magiging effective ito kaya di ko muna ibuburst-out sa inyo].. gusto ko kasing magkaron ng IGNACIO METHOD.. haha.. uhm siguro para narin magkaron ng sariling method sa Pilipinas.. pero dahil dito,,for 1-2 weeks nabawasan ako ng 3 seconds average, balik sub28 ulit ako noong mga panahong iyon... sana pag may panahon ako.. pagpapatuloy ko ang paghahanap ng method...

pinakabilib ako sa method ni Ryan Heise [kahit hindi siya suitable for speedcubing kasi kulang fingertricks] kasi gusto ko yung goal niya: masolve yung cube without memorized algos - - - just plain SOLVING the cube for REAL.. idolo ko rin siya...



HINDI AKO NAGYAYABANG...may dahilan ako...



ETO ANG DAHILAN kung bakit gusto kong gumawa TAYONG LAHAT ng sariling method:

alam ko masasaktan ang iba dito pero in fact mas IDOL ko si Fridrich[pangalawang favorite ko], Ortega, Vandenbergh-Harris, Z.-B., Heise [pinakafavorite ko] at sa iba pang gumawa ng sarili nilang method kaysa sa mga TOP CUBERS ngayon tulad ni Nakajima.kasi inispend nila yung time nila on solving the cube FOR REAL, they found their own styles AT THE COST OF THEIR LIFETIME[well basta mahabang panahon] tapos basta basta nlng nila ipapapublish at kokopyahin ng mga taong mas bibilis pa sa kanila. isnt that NOBLE of them?

Isipin niyo nlng kung makasarili si Fridrich, iba ang method siguro na gamit natin ngayon, walang Petrus, ZB, VH,COLL,PLL-OLL combo ng LL,ELL-CLL combo ng LL, ANDAMING APEKTADO

what's the point? gusto kong sabihin na cubing isn't just about speed... may ilang cubers dito.. balang araw magsasawa rin sa pagcube...may makikitang ibang hilig... pero ako...I'M DIFERRENT... i want to eternalize cubing...be part of it.. I LOVE CUBING...AND I MEAN IT...IN FACT, PAGDATING KO SA LANGIT... PAPATURO AKO NG GOD'S ALGO KAY GOD[redundant b?haha]... gusto kong magkaroon ng contribution sa cubing world...

kaya hindi ko gagayahin si matyas kuti [nandaya man o hindi] na sub-xx sa ganto, sub-xx sa ganyan... ayaw kong makilala bilang ang taong sub-xx. sa NxNxN cube..masyadong maikli ang pagkakakilala sa akin kung ganoon...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
up to this point parang wala akong direksyon sa pagtytype.. hindi ko na alam kung nu ba tlg ang dapat na topic sa thread na ito.. sa dami ng sinasabi ko hndi ko alam kung anu ba tlga ang gusto kong main topic ng sama ng loob ko [actually di masama loob ko..wala lang akong ganang magcube.. hehe]...kaya tatapusin ko na ang post by my last statement:

"HUWAG TAYONG MAGING LEECHERS.. HUWAG LAMANG MANGARAP NA MAGING SUB-XX.. SEEK YOUR OWN STYLE.. SEEK YOURSELVES"

THANK YOU... ü

here's mine.... outline na lang ng improvements ko, tsaka kung saan ako na stuck.... bwiset na thesis yan eh, di ako makapagpractice, 3 thesis in 1 semester...

July, 2007 - Solved a cube using LBL Method (approx. 3 minutes)
Aug, 2007 [1st wk] - Can average 1:30:00
----STOPPED CUBING FOR SEVERAL WKS----
Aug, 2007 [4th wk] - Can average 55:00 (sub 1 min)
Sept 2, 2007 - Started speedcubing by learning Fridrich Method
Sept, 2007 [2nd wk] - Achieved an ave of 55 s (all F2L, 2lookOLL, 15PLL)
Sept, 2007 [4th wk] - Achieved an ave of 50 s
Oct, 2007 - Currently sub50s
Nov, 2007 - Cut my average to sub35s (araw-araw kasi)
Dec, 2007 [1st wk] - sub33s
Dec, 2007 [2nd wk] - sub31s
Dec, 2007 [3rd wk] - na stucked yata ako nung time na 'to sa sub31s
Dec, 2007 [4th wk] - tanda ko nung Dec. 26 naging sub25s or sub26s yata ako
Jan, 2008 [1st wk] - sub23s
Jan, 2008 [2nd wk] - sub23s pa rin
Jan, 2008 [3rd wk] - sub23s pa rin
Jan, 2008 [4th wk] - sub21s
Feb, 2008 [1st wk] - di yata ako naglalaro nung time na 'to
Feb, 2008 [2nd wk] - balik sub23, ewan ko kung bakit bumagal ulit ako
Feb, 2008 [3rd wk] - sub21 na naman, naibalik ung average thru practice ulit
March, 2007 - target date to be sub20s in average

Ayan na ung mga naistuck na average ko, to some cguro bale wala tong toic na 'to pero sakin, ok to nakikita natin ung improvements natin tsaka makikita rin natin kung saang time tau di nagiimprove... Btw, nakakasub20s na nga pla ako sa ave of 10/12 nung mid-Feb pero bihira.. mga above 10 times pa lang... kaya di pa rin ako sub20... I hope this coming wks makapagpractice na ulit ako ng constant para magimrove ulit, last 2 defense na lang kami ng thesis tapos aun free na ung time...

ako e2 yung improvement ko

august 2007: napanood ko yung special feat ng pursuit to happyness tas nainspire ako by the end of d moth sub 60

2nd week of september: sub50(about 44-47) then stopped

cause kung bakit nag stop: KATAMARAN, MADAMI GINAGawa

3rd or 4th week of january 2008: balik cubing kasi nauso sa school pero di ako nag cucube sa skul. di ako pasikat. i reached sub40(napancn ko na nag iimprove ako pag di ako nag cucube ng matagal)

TODAY:sub30 sa wakas. pll ko mejo slow mga 2-3.xx secs each kaya ko daw mag sub 25 sabi ng clasm8 ko kung ausin ko lng oll and pll.

oo. masama loob ko nung mga panahong pinipilit kong mag sub30. nagsisi ako kasi nagpahinga ako sa pag cucube. kung tinuloy ko lng yun, sana mas malaki improvement ko. mas maganda tlga pag 2loy 2loy.

pero mas asteeg parin sa paningin ng tao pag kaya mo ng BLD. yun ang target ko ngaun ^_^

marami sa mga algs kasi ngaun ung optimized na. kaya feeling ko wala nang may ibang magshare ng mga modifications nila. isang pang reason kung bakit ayaw magshare ng iba ay iniisip nilang may nagawa na ring personal modifications ung ibang tao. kaya ganun. naputol ung circulation of info dun sa point na meron ng set of algs ang mga top cubers. ok lang naman cguro iyon. kelangan lang talga nating ipauso ang FMC at BLD. kasi dun lumalabas ang kaniya kaniyang styles ng mga tao eh. i mean. pareho man ng basics guide na binasa ung mga BLDers, kaniya kaniya pa rin sila ng tactics ng ginagamit for the same situation. nasa tao naman iyon kung susundin niya ung sinasabi ng ibang tao eh. basta para sa akin, FMC and BLD ung areas kung saan nagkakatalo sa strategy ang mga tao. saka sa BIGCUBES NGA PALA. hehehe cheers

mabagal din ang improvement ko

from 1.5 minutes

to sub-60...

to sub-50...

to sub-40...

then sub-35... (mejo bumagal na dahil kakaaral ko lang ng f2l)

then sub-30...

then kagabi eh may new PB average na ako na malapit sa sub-25

wala na kasi akong tym mag-aral ng PLL (karamay mo ako marc, hehehe)

lapit na bakasyon so tiis muna tayo

november13, 2007 = 3:55 sec. (my first solve!)

November 25, 2007 = sub 2mins (kaka introduce lang sakin ang F2L at ang speedcubing.)

praktis lang ako ng praktis.

2nd week of december = sub55

3rd-4th week of december = sub 50

2nd week of january = sub 45

3rd-4th week of january = sub 35

today = sub 40. (BUMABAGAL AKO! T_T)
