Anyway, here is a rebus I made in mspaint:
<snip>
Thousand?
Yes. Explanation: The "You" is in old english font, which means it should be "Thou". Combine that with the sand and you get thousand.
I'll come up with a new one later

I don't completely understand. I understand what reversible computing means, but how is this a model?

Re: Posts that are related to ConwayLife or other cellular autonoma but otherwise random

I tried to make Hillstretcher able to have gliders (it failed, S3q makes it explode but if you exclude S3q you can't have hillstretchers) and I managed to end up at LeapLife with S4i added. I ran a soup, and

I can't even load in a loafer. Why not, exactly?

Re: Thread for your script-related questions

I know of a script that turns patterns to apgcodes, but is there a script that turns apgcodes to patterns? This script by Ilmari Karonen seems to fit the bill. I haven't tested it, but the comments show a good level of awareness of the different apgcode variants. Tangential note: I knew the name "I...

Configure apgsearch 5.0? Have you read the instructions?
I did not. I forgot that it was on gitlab and had a readme.md because I had issues with make and g++ (which are now fixed).
