Re: Langton's Ant Music

also, using anything in the "actions" thing speeds it up. That's interesting... not a bug, but I never noticed that.

Re: Langton's Ant Music Challenge

Challenge time!

I'd like to offer a prize of $0 + bragging rights to the person who can create the shortest ant script that plays the "Seven Nation Army" bassline. Bonus points for drums.

Metric: Number of nonzero cells + Number of XML tags. Smallest score wins.

This might be tricky, but another suggestion: make a "track ant" button, with a box for an integer to the right. when you click on it, you then must click on a square containing an ant. the camera will follow the ant around, and will be zoomed out enough to see a square with width 2n, where n is th...
