in reply to Game::Life

fantastic! i was considering writing one myself, recently, and i'll look over your code in more detail when i return home from this trip -- but the reason i was thinking about this game recently is that someone told me once that the Conway in Conway's Life is Damian Conway, and i was wondering if any body knows if this is true. hints? leads? just curious

    No. Conway of Conway's Life is John Horton Conway, great mathematician and computer scientist. He's, among other things, the author (together with Guy and Berkelamp) of Winning ways for your mathematical Plays, definitely a must reading if you're interested in Game Theory.
