Did I call #192 yet? Probably not. Well, now I will.

#161-164, and multiway #202 (that is, 3217-3232/4096) finished with negative results.
#165, #166, #170, and #173 have also finished with negative results (except one octagon+blinker combination).
#58-63 and #168 are also empty.

#225-240 (in the form of 57-60/64) are now running on the laptop, and #203-215 (102-107/128, and 215/256) on the desktop.

That's all, folks!

d 14/32, 24/32, 25/32 and 28/32 all returned handfuls of p2 + p5 combinations but nothing more. I think we figured that corresponds to 105-112, 185-200 and 217-224.

#203-215 are now complete, with no results except for the usual blinker-octagon combinations.

Laptop results are now in for #57-60/64 (probably equivalent to #225-240/256).

As usual, no interesting results were reported, except for one heart in #58:

Cool, that's a pretty rare pattern:

Shucks. Only 21 per 0x100 left, and no luck. This means there probably will never be a result.

Because I have plenty of impatience and spare cpu cycles, I went ahead and searched some of the spaces reserved by others. Apologies to bullet51, dvgrn, and muzik:
#6, #133-143 is empty; #172, #174, #175 only have trivial p5+p2 oscillator combinations.

My apologies for not elaborating.
Also,

So, with that, the (current) search space is complete!
