A forum where anything goes. Introduce yourselves to other members of the forums, discuss how your name evolves when written out in the Game of Life, or just tell us how you found it. This is the forum for "non-academic" content.

What pattern is closest to the day you were born? Not just the date, but also the year.

Mine is 160P10H2V0, which was discovered in November 2004. Anybody know the exact date?

Looks like there isn't anything notable from October 2001, so mine would have to be Gabriel Nivasch's tremi- and quasi-pseudo SLs from July of that year.

Most of the people who were doing Life stuff in the 1990s are probably older than that now, unless they started really young. That would mean pretty much everybody who you might recognize from the Life Lexicon credits from a dozen years ago, many of whom have accounts on the conwaylife forums, though most of them don't post too much: David Bell, Paul Callahan, Dean Hickerson, Hartmut Holzwart, Heinrich Koenig, Mark Niemiec, Tom Rokicki, Andrew Trevorrow, Bill Gosper, etc.

I'm a latecomer to the Life scene -- only got really properly started in the current millenium, not the last one, with one brief exception in the early 1980's -- but I'm pretty close to that old.

I wasn't around for the discovery of the glider, which was actually sometime in 1969 if you read Conway's biography, even though he rounded all the Life discovery stuff to 1970. But I do predate the first glider gun by somewhat over half a year.

Not sure when Conway got around to following the life histories of all the heptominoes, there isn't a very good timeline for those early investigations -- but let's just say that my birth pattern is the (sadly misnamed) Herschel.

Gabriel's p138. However, if 98P25 was found just one day before it, it would have been found on my birthday.

There were zero B3/S23 patterns announced on the day of my birth. Instead, my birth was accompanied by three HighLife patterns:

I was born in November of 1975, so according to the LifeWiki, the closest discovery would have been the Unix found by David Buckingham in February of 1976.

I dabbled with Life on an Apple ][ Plus (and learned programming on punch cards...each punch machine was defective in its own way).
