I came across this site this evening and thought I'd pass it on to the
plug list.  Goes to show you don't need to implement that many
operations to have something that is turing complete.

If I get bored enough, I might just load his patterns in to some Life
implementation on my Linux machine and see what happens!  I thought
alien spaceships were cool patters in Life, but this one takes the cake.
