Boring p24 (or trans-pulsar on figure eight) is a period 24 oscillator composed of a pulsar and a figure eight.
Despite being composed of two oscillators of smaller period (3 and 8 respectively), it is considered non-trivial because it has two cells that are alive in one generation and dead in the other 23, and two more otherwise period-8 cells that are alive in one additional generation.
On Catagolue, it is the most common period 24 oscillator, being more common than the similar uninteresting p24.
