Re: Mobile CA exploration programs?

On IOS there is an app called ssslife that has hundreds of patterns that you can try and you can change the size of the grid in the settings. You can also draw whatever you like as long as it fits the grid.

Re: Thread for basic questions

Are there turners in the Jason Summers pattern collection that involve collisions of gliders and XWSSs? I was able to find some turners in that database that turns gliders, but they don't involve the gliders actually colliding with the XWSSs. If they aren't in the Jason Summers collection are they i...

Re: Script request thread

Can someone make a script that generates collisions between a NW travelling glider and 2 upward travelling LWSSs? And before it generates those collisions it Can someone make a script that does this? Step 1: Generate all combinations of 2 upward LWSSs at a certain distance from each other (they can ...

Re: 13131: The B-Heptomino/Glider Spaceship Thread

I know this isn't necessarily a caterpillar thread, but you guys essentially found the "spine" of a caterpillar for this velocity. If there is a way to make a glider rake that traverses on the "spine" that makes gliders go North (Northeast for example) then we could actually start building a caterpi...

Re: Minecraft discussion

I believe redstone computer and the like are trivial to anyone here. Not for me. I understand what individual components do mostly (even comparators), but I simply cannot understand how they work together, and stuff like BUD powering and quasi-connectivity make it even worse. I have no idea how to ...

Re: Random posts

What happens when you eat a bowl of CGOL soup? 🤔 Good question. CGoL might be okay, the only hazard I can think of is stray gliders and rarely XWSSs attacking your body and switch engine puffers popping out of you. Highlife would probably be more dangerous with the replicator constantly pushing aro...

Re: (34,7)c/156 caterpillar

Sadly, it's not at all clear that a slow salvo could push targets away nearly fast enough to keep up with the sideways motion of the ship. -- Which probably means it's time to experiment with building sideways *WSS rakes next, along the lines of Sphenocorona's diagram, and hitting them with forward...

Re: The meaning/story of your username

The PC part came from the phrase "Personal Computer". I wanted to be known for being a computer person
I don't quite remember where the 101 part came from, but I do remember it having to do with introductory stuff like "Physics 101" or something.
