Perhaps you could be more specific about what you want in such a search program, considering that you've previously used simeks' methuselah search program.
The latest version of the 5S Project contains over 183,000 spaceships. Tabulated pages up to period 160 are available on the LifeWiki.

Secondly, (s)he said a optimized one will be released "soon".

Lastly, I tried using the "resume" option (continue from N*1000000th seed), but it never works. This is very disturbing since several times I clumsily close the command line and I have to restart again from 0.

[I'm deleting testitemqlstudop's actual posts, as a quick way to get the HTML-breaking sig line out of this thread temporarily. Will probably do the same to any future posts until the sig line is fixed.]

There's no way for the admins to edit users' sig lines? That would help with sig line-spammers, too.

Sig lines, like passwords, are off-limits at least to me (as far as I know). Nathaniel might be able to get at the actual database where they're stored, if he really wanted to.

But deleting posts certainly does take care of the sig lines! So I tend to think this particular problem is just a temporary one...
