Re: Extended pattern collection for Golly

I have updates to three patterns in the main Golly collection. Oscillators/honey-farm-hasslers.rle: #C Honey farm hasslers. #C There is an unusual proliferation of oscillators engineered this #C way, because there are so many ways to perturb a honey farm in #C such a way that it reappears in the sam...

Is there a P27 V sparker? It would help if you explain why you need it.

Finished the near-miss It's really quite astounding that you pulled this additional TL hassler out of the aether.
