Unfortunately, I wasn't able to reduce any other low periods using this, as the spark is too close to avoid destroying the oscillator. p240 can be easily done using a pentadecathlon, but it looks like the p48, p80, p96, and p144 pages won't need updating unless I'm missing something. Either way, massive congrats to Rob Liston!Code: Select all

Yes, it's a p48, but no cell there is p48, and indeed the cell that turns on as a result of the interaction is p24.Entity Valkyrie 2 wrote: ↑February 11th, 2020, 4:49 amI guess this counts as a new P48:Code: Select all

Re: Oscillator Discussion Thread
The oscillator is known, found by Merzenich years ago. My records for large oscillators aren't organized enough to say if a construction is known. A quick search didn't find one.
