Re: Oscillator Discussion Thread

I don't think it has much clearance. For clearance I was referring to the period 36 spark given off by the traffic jam, rather than the p4 sparker... I certainly don't know of any other p36 isolated dot sparkers with reasonable clearance off the top of my head, and it wouldn't surprise me if the sp...

Re: Crawlers

Not really... The primary issue here with the original glider+block crawler, as I gather it, is not that there are more outputs than inputs to the crawler, or that the blocks show up again in a different position, but that the crawler as it stands has multiple inputs that need to be aligned and syn...
