The 11 second solve had an easy cross, extremely fast F2L, a Sune, and a U2 for PLL (PLL skip).

Cross: x2 L F' R2 D' R D2
Can't remember the rest >.<

Haha the 14 and 11 second times saved me =D

Man! When I was saying I was going to get PB averages soon I was right! I tried 10/12 solve averages though but it didn't work too well. Got 19.99 seconds and 19.93. Sad Well, tomorrow is a new day =) (I'm busy now).

3x3 single

PB Non-Lucky Single Solve of 12.97 seconds!

Again, this was a really easy hand scramble. The cross was like 3 or 4 moves, the F2L was blazing fast, the OLL was one look, and the PLL was a J permutation. I'm getting a lot faster these days - most solves are under 20 seconds now. You guys should be expecting PB averages soon....

3x3 single, New puzzles

PB 3x3 Single Non-Lucky solve of 13.97 seconds!

I did this on the car, so I was using a "hand scramble."

The cross was normal difficulty, and then I had to only insert two or three F2L pairs. Plus, my look ahead was excellent on the F2L. Then I had an Anti-Sune for OLL, and a clockwise A permutation for the PLL.
