Well, sorry if this is clear on the rules, but I couldn't find it... on one-handed solving, do competitors need to use 2 hands to start/stop the timer, or this can be done with just one hand?

The timer must be stopped with both hands flat, palms down and the fingers touching the timer sensors, and without touching the puzzle. It is the competitor's responsibility that the timer is stopped correctly[/b:379ky6yc]. After the competitor stops the timer, he may not touch the puzzle or reset the timer until the judge has inspected the puzzle. A judge may disqualify a solve for touching the puzzle or resetting the timer before he has inspected the puzzle. If a competitor manipulates the puzzle after the timer has been stopped, before the judge has inspected the puzzle, the solve is automatically disqualified. The judge inspects the puzzle and determines whether or not it has been completely solved. The competitor may pick up his puzzle only after the judge has inspected the puzzle.
