1. #Life 1.05
2. #D Line Puffer of width 33
3. #D
4. #D The width is defined by the length of the first free-standing line
5. #D in the puffer's plume.  The formula for this is 12n+1-s, where n is
6. #D the number of middle segments, and s is the number of cells covered
7. #D by the little 3-cell, 5-unit puff-suppressors on the upper edge of
8. #D this otherwise symmetrical pattern.
9. #D
10. #D Here, n=4, and s=6+5+5.  The Y-shaped puff-suppressors can have 5,
11. #D 6, or 7 units of spacing on between them, or between one of them and
12. #D the end.  You only need 2 or 3 such suppressors to produce any
13. #D puffer width.
14. #D
15. #D Notice that placing random debris behind the puffer sometimes
16. #D affects the plume permanently - even turning it asymmetrical if the
17. #D debris was asymmetrical.  It also affects the period of the puffer,
18. #D that is, the number of generations it takes to repeat.  By
19. #D increasing the width, the period can be made to rise exponentially,
20. #D surpassing 10^6 at a width of only about 70.  But the most amazing
21. #D thing is that it has a half-life on the order of 10^8 generations.
