'golly' has always been my cellular automaton tool of choice when I really want to delve into an interesting rule. It's a hell awkward app, but golly (sic) it's powerful.

But it can't do this rule, and that is frustrating. (video shows 12 seconds of what I am increasingly thinking of as a "writhing, living border"... it finds a stable loop somewhere between 300,000 and 420,000 generations, which is well over an hour of 60fps runtime

(todo later: file feature request / bug report with both this app, and golly)

The biggest problem in BTTF is the smallness of the clearance inside that truck... or, is it?

This vid shows it good (though the step on the truck makes the gap look smaller than it is)

I was a 1st grader in 1981... hmmmm 
 
Meeting this 1979 first grade readiness requirement could get you arrested now.

"Can he travel alone in the neighborhood (four to eight blocks) to store, school, playground, or to a friend's home?"
Is your child ready for first grade? Earlier this month, Chicago Now blogger Christine Whitley reprinted a checklist from a 1979 child-rearing series designed to help a parent figure that one out. Ten out of 12 meant readiness. Can your child "draw and color and stay within the lines of...

My walk to school for K–4 was 500m, most of that up a stormwater drain :)

I don't know how many "blocks" that counts for, but we did it on our own most of the time.

I have some Macs... hmmmmm
 
That this is even possible AT ALL speaks to the robustness of the MacPlus design. 
Reviving an old computer is like restoring a classic car: There's a thrill from bringing the ancient into the modern world. So it was with my first “real” computer, my Mac Plus, when I decided to bring it forward three decades and introduce it to the modern Web. It's a lowly machine, my Mac.

realistically, I'm unlikely to do this for the sake of proving it's possible...

but... most of the individual bits make for useful things to keep in mind for future use of them. Esp zmodem for file transfers for instance... :)

It's the bloody #NymWars  all over again. This time on Twitter.

Screw that.
 
Verification is probably safe for me (hello, straight white male), but with all of the issues identified here I'm not going near it, and neither should anyone else.

I was discussing this and other responses elsewhere. The issue is not proper nouns. The issue is sock puppets and impunity.

George Carlin: "Conservatives say if you don't give the rich more money, they will lose their incentive to invest. As for the poor, they tell us they've lost all incentive because we've given them too much money."

You guys have exploding trees. That would give anyone pause.
