I'm now interested who, of the faster puzzles, is left-handed and who is right-handed..

I'll write a separate post about it in the Timed Puzzles forum.

I remember starlings 6x6 video solve in which he didn't use the pencil at all. Am I the only one to use it? [scared]


I use the pencil all the the time, but it's hard to get under 20 seconds in a 5x5 if you have to pencil things in.. And I usually use the middle finger of my right hand to press the shift-key, so it slow my "movement" quite a bit..

I tried using the keyboard today and kept hitting the wrong keys. I think a lot of practice is required. My times in general were somewhat slower than my recent times on the iPad, but I guess perseverance is required.
