Good question. It turns out that I never ventured into the wilderness of 40-bit 1-cell thick patterns. :?

[Golly] "LifeHistory" for CA other than Life

Hello to all: Just a quick question. Is there a trick to get the LifeHistory functionality for an arbitrary cellular automaton e.g. B38/S238? I'm trying these two commands successively: g_setrule("B357/S238"); g_setrule("LifeHistory"); But it seems as if LifeHistory is hardwired to B3/S23. :cry: Tha...

Just a quick question: Is there a way in Golly to get Random Fill probabilities inferior to 1% with/without scripting?.

I was very surprised to see so many pulsars in the final output, by the way -- until the extra "8" in the rule string caught my eye! Thanks... D'oh! I too noticed the pulsar anomaly but I didn't realize I was pasting a Pulsar Life pattern! http://www.yuuguu.com/images/emoticons/yuuguudefault/embarr...

Re: Thread For Your Useless Discoveries

I can usually resist this kind of thing, but today I noticed that a kickback reaction into one of Guam's snazzy new 2G-to-G converters produces a fairly clean output glider on the same relative lane, so you get a chain reaction. OK. Bravo! http://forums.sexyandfunny.com/images/smilies/more/bravo.gif
