Rubik's Cube

One of the relatively few things I lost in the fire was a set of notes I'd made about Rubik's Cubes. It wasn't much, just a few pages from a 35 memo pad that I'd cleaned up (by cutting off the spiral bits at the top) and stapled together (at one corner), but it was a pretty good summary of everything I knew about cubes.

At the time I didn't give the lost notes much thought, but recently I happened to pick up a cube again (to solve it for a friend of mine) and one thing led to another. First I picked up some new (used) copies of two short books I'd also lost, then I tried to reconstruct as much of the notes as possible, and then when that went well I decided I'd put in the extra effort to write them up and put them on line. And here they are! I've broken the notes into a bunch of subessays, but that's just to provide structure; most of the subessays are actually quite short.
