Re: Cool apgcodes

araara in b3/s13

7bra in that von Neumann neighborhood rule I searched to death a while ago,

And b3/s2456 has so many objects it's not hard to find apgcodes with 5 or 6 letter words in them:

Re: Polyominoes

I built another rectangle I haven't seen anywhere before, again using one of each of the heptominoes: a 20x38 with 4 holes (placed symmetrically). 20x38.png This ended up taking an entire evening of playing around with my little homemade heptomino set. I had attempted this rectangle ages ago, and ha...

Polyominoes

Anyone else on here have an interest in polyominoes or other polyforms (outside of a cellular-automata context, I suppose)? I've been playing on with various sets a fair bit recently, pentominoes and hexominoes mainly, just constructing (or attempting to construct) rectangles and other shapes with t...

Re: Random posts

I somewhere saw a "3c partial, obviously not extensible". It was small. But I forgot where it was.

Some of the oscillator list pages for 2x2 symmetries are not sorting the objects by number of occurrences, e.g. https://catagolue.appspot.com/census/b36s125/D8_4/xp4

Nice to see some other cubers on here!
