Re: Catagolue Oddities

My recent hauls page: https://catagolue.appspot.com/haul/b3s23/C1?user=Saka Only seems to give hauls from 2017 and earlier as well as a few I just did. Why? Is this intended?

Yeah, that pattern expands three cells outside its initial bounding diamond, so it's a definite counterexample to LaundryPizza03's assertion as stated. The question of whether spaceships would be possible in LongLife or not thus remains undetermined.

The last entry I can see is now #1019, "Vase siamese bookends", both #1020 and #1021 appear to be undisplayable, and #1022 is "Very^9 long snake". So the links that are causing the problem must be alphabetically in between those, which gives us some more information as to what they could be.
