Hey everyone,

I recently have been having some doubts about ZB, which I would prefer
not to be having, but I wanted to bring them up.

I recently met with Dan Knights and asked him what he thought about
ZB.  His response was, for the most part, that it seemed like a good
method but that recognition seems that it would be a big problem.

I also have noticed that I still delay quite a bit using the block
method for my ZBLL cases.

I'm at a dilemma.  I have been talking with lots of people about
Fridrich after the 2005RWC and have found lots of really useful ways
to drop my average.  I even think now that I could get sub-15 with
Fridrich were I to just implement all the changes that I should implement.

Also though, I really am curious about the potential for ZB.  I know
that if I don't try it out myself, knowing all or at least almost all
of it, my curiosity of whether or not it is a worthwhile method would
eventually drive me insane.

So I'm stuck.  I have two methods that both require quite a bit of
work to learn/master and only 24 hours in a day.

How can we balance these methods?  Should I extend my goal to learning
ZB for another year or two and learn at a slower pace, and also
practice Fridrich half the time?

Also, after talking with Dan I think we really are underestimating the
problem of recognition.  I think we need to develop several methods
for recognizing each case.  Be able to recognize from any angle, etc.

I really think just saying "oh and look at the case to reconize" will
not work.  We need to turn ZBF2L and ZBLL recognition into a science.
 I am going to post pictures of all my algs from all 4 angles for all
my ZBLL algs.  I will make a page for recognition at every angle since
I believe just recognizing at one will not work to master this method.

The more I think about it, the harder this method will be to master,
and the more I want to learn it :-)

So anyway, I think we have grossly and terribly underestimated the
problem of recognition.  I think at a bare minimum we all need to
recognize ZBF2L and ZBLL from any angle, and ZBF2L done in any F2L slot.

So I'm trying to find a balance, but there is so much to do and so
little free time in a day :-(

Any help whatsoever would be appreciated, I just want to stay motivated.
