Rubik's Cubes? Lets upgrade to Cube21 sided solvers

Description

cube21-1[1] I couldn't solve the easy version of the Rubik's cube, maybe with a hammer I'll be able to solve the Cube21 sided version.  Pavel Šavara however solved the Cube21 programmatically with C++, CLI, WPF, SQL, WCF, and ASP + Ajax.  Pavel goes into some detail on his methods and math on his blog post.

He also gives out the source code for his program.

Source code under LGPL on SourceForge subversion.
GUI client + database creation engine binaries, .NET 3.0 required. Analysis report
Database of shapes in XML

Update:  After talking with Pavel, he said the Rubik's cube is a far harder problem to solve.  Here is a wikipedia entry on it.

    Just tested out the video and it works, could you try it again?

    It still doesn't work, but it does when I use remote desktop that resides in the US, that's bizarre Perplexed . I know well that my country (Greece) doesn't block anything, and besides my connection stems directly from the GEANT network..

    Maybe there's a dead object in a cache somewhere..
