It's a fast replicator (stolen from TimeScape), with some non-linear bombing (stolen from Paper Dreaming). But, this combination happens to do quite well. Here are the latest results: Program "nobody special" (length 96) by "Mike Nonemacher" (contact address "schitzo+@CMU.EDU"): has challenged the ICWS '94 Draft hill. Program "nobody special" (length 96) by "Mike Nonemacher" (contact address "schitzo+@CMU.EDU"): ;strategy Paper like TimeScape, but with lots more ;strategy core-trashing, anti-imping, etc. nobody special wins: 2 nobody special wins: 0 Ties: 98 Program "B-Panama X" (length 100) by "Steven Morrell" (contact address "morrell@csc-sun.math.utah.edu"): ;strategy Better Stone / Silk (?)
