I am Shane, better known as Shane12088 on RuneScape. I co-own everything RSBandB related and have done so for the past 8 years. I am also working on a couple of other things that may or may not appear sometime in the future.
The Daily Bits is a collection of posts, images, and links and pretty much any other bits from around the web. You can also explore any software that I've created or will undoubtedly create in the future.
Finally for those who are looking for a blast from the past you can find my RuneScape photo collection and some Flash games that I've shared before.
Conway's Game of Life is a zero player game that demonstrates cellular automation. This is a demonstration that is limited in terms of scope due to memory and CPU constraints. The Game of Life is governed by four simple rules:
You, the viewer, can modify the game by stopping the simulation. After you stop the simulation click anywhere in the defined grid to lay out an initial seed. Double click a cell to delete it. Start the simulation and see if you've created life.
This version is unoptimized for scanning the grid. This is fine since our grid is finite. If this was to be expanded to a true simulation our grid would have to be made infinite and highly optimized.
