Re: Random posts

I apparently was cited by an abstract on theoretical physics by this random guy named Willem Francois Esterhuyse.

This is indeed impossible - the Sandbox forum is not visible to unregistered users, and by extension, search engine bots.
Last time I checked (aka five seconds ago) it is.
The forum directory is visible, but the threads within it are not.

I would suggest a better definition of 'Sparse Life'. The concept is interesting, but it might not be clear to the average reader.

Re: Catagolue Oddities

It appears that, in the rare case that an internal glider collision (after a sufficient lapse) "restarts" a soup which later produces a block-laying switch engine, the switch engine is at least sometimes misclassified: https://catagolue.appspot.com/object/yl144_1_16_9cdca6cf6fa2778709f5c4224db518e7...

Don't forget, there's also Wing (spaceship) :P

All the buzz has been about colliding gliders to cleanly make a Sir Robin. But is it possible for a finite amount of Sir Robins to cleanly make a single glider? After all, the knightship's so big it's hard to clean any reaction up.
