### Re: The Hunting of the Periodic Herschel Conduits

The long hook with tail is unnecessary, but it's still neat to see it used to catalyze something. Correct. The purpose of the long hook with tail is to reduce the repeat time of the p5 glider duplicator design from 75 to 70: x = 103, y = 41, rule = LifeHistory 2B21.2A14.4B17.2B21.2A14.4B\$2BA21.A13....

Hey, that might even make Rob's p16 a little cheaper to build.

Wouldn't a long beehive be the central region in xs20_bd0ehe0db ? If so, would the region in your fast component be a tire or a long tire? Yes, "long beehive" for xs20_bd0ehe0db's 3-length region is more consistent with how "long" is used everywhere else. The 4-length region is what I think of as a...

This is slightly interesting because the HWSS forms from one of the gliders in the same way that an LWSS normally forms.
