This is a copy of Ernö Rubik's signature as it appears in my notebook. He signed it at the World Championship in Budapest in 1982

This system for advanced cubers and is not appropriate for a beginner. It is intended for those of you who can already solve the cube in a few minutes and want to get really fast. If you are a complete beginner, please, visit Jasmine's Beginner Solution.

Richard Carr is THE expert on solving large cubes with a list of his record times. Richard can solve the cube blindfolded and willingly shares with us his method. I met Richard in April 2003 and he showed me his incredible skills in person.
