Re: Not very interesting rule: B2ce3-ajnr/S12-ak3-a

Nice find! That is indeed the first known 2c/4 orthogonal in the rule. The second p4 tagalong can be attached to the same backend as the first p4 tagalong: x = 51, y = 18, rule = B2ce3-ajnr/S12-ak3-a bo4bo23bo4bo$obo2bobo21bobo2bobo$2b4ob2o22b4ob2o$2bo2bobob3o19bo2bobob 3o$7bobobo24bobobo$6b2o3bo23b...
