Wake N’ Blog: A Bunch Of Nerds Figured Out Every Rubik’s Cube Solution

Wake N’ Blog is the Sportress of Blogitude’s morning link dump. Apologies for the technical difficulties yesterday, but it has finally prompted me to take care of some lingering problems with the inner workings of the Sportress once and for all. This weekend, a team of experts – well, an expert – will put the site through rigorous testing and a thorough cleaning up. You know in E.T. when Elliott’s house is taken over by those government agents and it’s all covered up and the guys in Hazmat are swarming the joint? Yeah, that’s what the Sportress will look like this weekend. Look forward to a new and improved site on Monday. This sucker is going to be a lean, mean sports blogging machine beginning next week. Be afraid: be very afraid. As always, send tips, links, etc. to
