Hi Oscar,

Please feel free to use the solution guide for blogging a translation, or
however you see fit.

It was nice to hear the Rubiks wiki page brought you to our group :) I
don’t know who initially added the MC4D info there, but I did recently
notice someone had removed all of it (booooo!). After tracking it down to a
change last November whose edit summary was nothing but "incorrect
statements" (which of course seemed unjustified to me), I added it back in
and so far it seems to have survived. I would contend it is quite relevant
to that page (as much so as other related puzzles getting discussed), so I’m
happy to find out it was beneficial in your case.

Take Care,
