Conway's Game of Life (RIP)

The mathematical genius, John Conway, behind Conway's Game of Life just passed away. So I wrote this Conway's Game of Life in Basic as homage.

@amasad Oh, a quick question - why do you code in BASIC?

amasad (2541)

@DynamicSquid it's fun for these small things. Can you make it in nearly 40 lines of code in other languages?

DynamicSquid (3608)

@amasad That's a good point, I could maybe try in Processing, but it's going to be way over 40

This game is actually pretty fun once you plug in random values, but I heard that Conway actually hated this game. Maybe he had a feud with the creator?

@DynamicSquid conway was the creator - he said he hated it because people always focused on this and not his other accomplishments.

@DynamicSquid didn't realize that until after i posted the comment

@SATA thank you! What's powder toy?

SATA (2)

@amasad its a simulation program that can do a bunch of things. Here's the link.


@SATA Hello, this is my other account. SATA is too crammed.
