The 7 segment "font" is a good bit easier to reproduce by hand. I also need to remember where to put the 3 tweak bits. I have not tried PCALLAHAn in 7 segments. That would be easier to remember (besides the tweaked PAULC, though that collides with another Life enthusiast).

Have you tried a Simkin glider gun? All you need to memorize are the position of the block triplets relative to the starting Herschel.

(And by the way, I was kind of surprised when I first saw you on the forums - my 6th grade (and the grade I'm currently in) has a ELA teacher called Ms.Callahan)

It's a surprisingly common name and I tend to notice it when it comes up in movies, like Dirty Harry Callahan. There's a Professor Callaghan in Big Hero 6, but I don't know if he counts with the variant spelling (it is the same Irish name).testitemqlstudop wrote: (And by the way, I was kind of surprised when I first saw you on the forums - my 6th grade (and the grade I'm currently in) has a ELA teacher called Ms.Callahan)

I used to be a lot more active in the Life community and you will find my name on some of the patterns in the Lexicon. I also had one of the first Life web pages, started in 1995, now mothballed here courtesy of Tomas Rokicki.
