Inventor: Erno Rubik (hence the name)
ST: FAILED-for now...
As you see, this was only part one of my Rubik's journey, so wait for updates in this series!
UPDATE: Wind forward a couple of weeks I was on my computer looking at blog reviews and saw Moises' review about his rather successful Rubik experience here: http://puzzlerookie.blogspot.tw/2012/03/my-cube-and-me.html?m=1 and he's posted a very helpful Rubik's guide from the website on there, which looked simple enough for me, and I decided to pick up my isolated 3x3x3 again-this time successfully solving it! I still need to remember the algorithm though-no master at Rubik's! There's also a 4x4x4 sitting at my stable but I decides to not touch it for now... Too much for me! I am possibly off to buying a Pynaminx though! And thanks again to Moises for the guide. Keeping updated!
