Or the size of the maximum bounding box of the pattern could be arranged to increase as O(sqrt(log(N))), I think -- can't do better than that, right?

My army (named Pi, I am Squid) just had a battle that seems to go on for ever (I have seen it several times but it never seems to end), how can I end it and use my army again (I won my first battle)?
about 2/3 of the way through the pattern's evolution Actually, 1/4 of the way. Call the time it takes (in generations) for the space-filler to be hit, t . The distance to the lower corner is: t c/2 At that time, the decay starts to spread downward at 2c/3. The formula for the motion of the lower co...

This just made most sparkers fade into oblivion. I have seldom seen sparks of such size.Just found a bizarre new p54 that's mostly unbounded - only 2 grey cells.

I think the discoverer has the right to officially name it.muzik wrote:Should we set up a poll for the name of the ship?
For the same reason, Sawmill is still officially unnamed (I was afraid of letting it get stuck with an extremely boring name).
I do like "cuttlefish" for this new ship.
Maybe, make a breeder? Unfortunately, this would require the breeder to move at slope 7, unless the wick is staggered. Maybe, stop bumping ancient threads? Why not? That a thread is old does not mean it should be discarded, old threads have a lot of interesting information that can be added to. Wou...

Because of either DST or time zones, I accidentally posted an hour late.
The task now is to provide descriptions of the entries.
How did you build it, did you repeatedly use xor paste mode?
