My all-time favourite is the following:
Gustavo wrote:Seriously, you are Michael Simkin! I kept Michael Simkin in my ignore list! REMOVING NOW FROM IGNORE LIST

Oh wait, we are still rivals. I will also do a c/3 spaceship gun, other than dart, but this time the credits will be mine. And moreover, if it is to be a dart, my gun will be smaller and run at lower period! Unfortunately that means p30 with Gosper glider guns, but will hold a record!

When we get famous and scoreboards show 'Rehermann vs. Simkin' I will never admit it, but ONLY now I used your gun to make a p360 oscillator:
What do you do with ill crystallographers? Take them to the mono-clinic!

O H N O .

Reading that makes my skin crawl. Seriously

Sin tally:

1. Ignoring someone for no reason.
2. Thinking that a low level crapposter can produce a gun.
3. Serious actual rivalry in CGOL.
5. Posting a trivial oscillator made out of guns.
6. Scoreboards are shown that tally literally nothing.

Hierophant wrote:The Flammenkamp reverses course and accelerates to c/2. Successive wide layers of beehives and honeycombs are deployed and remain behind as the Flammenkamp continues its escape. The greyship hits each layer and is progressively more perturbed, until it is completely decomposed into still lives. The agar trailing behind the greyship begins to consume itself.

This classy bamboozle:
dvgrn wrote: The switch that turns on the extra A...F printer characters hasn't gotten much independent review, though. The only documentation for the hexadecimal option is some text in the pattern itself, a little left of center. Looking at it again, it's a very small patch compared to the full pattern, so maybe it has been too hard for anyone to find.

Kazyan wrote:Hmm. It's a longshot, but I wonder if--via circulating G2/G5/G6/etc pairs instead of just gliders, or periodic circuitry, or some other farfetched way of aggressively cutting down the repeat time of a circuit--only a single copy of Tile A would suffice on each end. If it could emit gliders quickly enough, it could perform 0hd recipes without a partner.
The working of the 0hd trick relies on Tile A happening to terminate with an edge-shooter that can insert a glider very very close behind another glider on the same lane. When the lead glider in a 0hd pair hits something, another glider has to be there almost immediately to modify the reaction. Check out the first glider pairs in Paul Chapman's 0hd universal set...
{blah, blah, blah...}
Anyway, a single-emitter design would probably have to have a repeat time below 20 ticks, before that idea would really work -- certainly below 43, since even a honeyfarm explosion will settle in that amount of time. If you can't hit the lead glider's explosion while it's active, the search space basically shrinks down to nothing.
And now we can do things like reduce the bounding-box area of a B3/S23 spiral-growth pattern by a factor of half a million over the state of the art less than three years ago. Good thing simeks paid attention to Kazyan's idea instead of to all that nonsense I wrote.

My estimate about 20 ticks being an upper bound for 0hd glider pairs turned out to be wrong by more than an order of magnitude...!

Haha, that's so hilariously true. This might actually be my favourite remark ever made on these forums.
I suppose it only says "might be", so there's plenty of wiggle room there.
