Re: Working on a flip-flop...

A worthy and well documented mechanism is Paul Rendell's Turing Machine. The documentation is broken down module by module and has yielded numerous components which resulted in great avail to my mechanisms. Why reinvent the wheel unless some overriding factor exists (i.e. space limitation, traffic l...

seeking small stable LW->G 135 degree

Help!
Most (all?) of the existing (known) LW->G p30 devices are 45 degree.
Of course, 2 p30 guns will give me 135 degree, as will a 45 + 90 degree compound.
I've got narrow paths of adjacent LWSS's to pick off and redirect.
Any pointer will be appreciated.

Ha, now that is elegant!
Agreed! I tried about every p30 device (even a pentadecathlon) I could think of. Over-thinking, I guess. It's almost as if there is an auto-optimize button! Thanks Kazyan. When implemented in practice, your provenance is assured.

Re: triller's p30 thread

Long time since I've posted. I will have a need in a large project to race a signal pulse ahead of the output of a mechanism working in the opposite direction. I thought I'd give a high speed wire a shot. Periodic being my bent, I worked over the version of Dean Hickerson's 2c/3 diagonal wire from o...

Credit where credit is due (I'm HUGE on provenance).
While my handle is evoked, the originator of the collatz generator is PM 2RING. See here.

How about a fibonacci generator with display like the Collatz one? I tried to assemble the decoder and the fibonacci generator, but it didn't work.

Watch out, though, @triller -- this kind of thing mixes very easily with p30 circuitry, but it's a slippery slope. Once you notice how nice it is not to have to deal with p30 rephasing issues, it might be hard to go back. Not to worry. My toolbox runneth over w/ p30 fasteners. A modicum of Spartan ...

Yes, that. Intent is an idiot light, on/true/yes by a glider. I'll handle reset.
7680 is shortest of any p30 signal.

How to make the pulsar display device display something else? It seems I've been remiss in chiming in. Other projects abound. As dvgrn stated, the bit map ROM cells are 64 (possible) glider memory cells for any 8x8 bit map of your choosing. I opted for a simple font of the hexadecimal character set...

While the bulk of accomplishments this year are interesting to me as curiosities, the Simkin Gun has direct impact in my particular bent, that of p30 circuitry. Its side shooting action makes it a great fit in some optimizations.

Given the absence of a Pattern of the Year for 2014, is it unreasonable to include patterns since the last such honors?
Biggiemac's waterbear misses the 2015 cutoff by a mere 3 days and 22 hours. Seems a shame.
