@rowett thank you for testing!

Re: Portable Golly for Linux (please test)

Apologies for the late reply, Lunar new years day endeavors here... Is this distro meant to include Python? Unfortunately no, although I could try that if that's wanted by many on Linux and Windows.

Re: Golly not running on recent versions of Ubuntu

Oh no! Thanks for testing, and thanks a LOT for reporting the errors. This
Yeah, this probably means I have to do the packaging also on Ubuntu 14.04, not only building it. I'll start fixing it now but it'll take a while.

Just a self reminder; I'm trying to fix this by building an AppImage of Golly for Linux.

Re: Logic Life Search

I compiled Windows binaries for some of the SAT solvers here.
(Edit: Due to licensing issues, moved the repo and distributing it as GPLv3. Using it wouldn't be a problem though.)
CryptoMiniSat offers Windows binaries, so didn't include those.
Any questions and comments welcome.

The new p23 will be called David Hilbert. The reference should be obvious.
We should probably leave the naming to the discoverer. Unless AbhpzTa is fine with that one.
Seconded. And may I question about the reference? (Not obvious to a non-english-meme speaker)

Re: Logic Life Search

May I ask a small question regarding SAT-based Life searching in general?
I'm working on a thin wrapper for Life-searching on Z3. It's currently working, but several times slower.
I'm curious if this was your experience with SMT solvers as well, or was it different?
