Re: Gems?

actually, that's quite interesting... ok it's a semi-gem now; that's what those are called.

Re: Thread for your unsure discoveries

I made a methuselah that takes up only 9 cells and stabilizes at exactly gen 1,100 with 6 escaped gliders, I call it the grenade because, well, that's what it looks like. here it is: #CXRLE Pos=-3,-6 x = 4, y = 4, rule = B3/S23 3o$2obo$bobo$2bo! also, I found you can make an infinitely expandable st...
