Conway’s Game of Life

So, thanks to xkcd I learnt about something cool today that’s been around for ages (wish I’d studied more maths….).

All the sites I found for playing with the simulation had Java applets on them, so I wanted to make a javascript one, I know it’s not a true implementation, because it goes a bit mental at the edges… but it was interesting anyway…

It’s here anyway if anyone wants to play… The timings might be a bit of a problem if you create a huge grid with small squares… so be prepared for Internet Exploder to give you some memory leak issues…
