Thanks, Charlie, for your kind words and your good ideas.  I'm glad you are enjoying my game.  After all these years, it's nice to see that people are still having fun with it.  

Your app looks like fun; any chance you could add my name as the game inventor to the description?  It's just vanity on my part, but it would make me happy.

Wow! I haven't tried playing this yet, but it was a pleasure to read. So creative and interesting! It reminds me of the Game of Life (the old computer game of birth and growth and death.)
