Re: The Hunting of the Elementary Conduits

I managed to get a century out, without even needing to use any sparkers! Yay! If the B is not perturbed, the century cleanly annihilates the block, resulting in a clean Herschel output (although this is unnecessary because a spark from the next E would delete the block if it remained). By not pert...

No, this isn't supposed to be a lightweight emulator. Instead, the front gives a "block face" that allows for catalysis.
