Scot Ellison has found a new Period 7 Sparker.
Nicolay Beluchenko found a much smaller Period 4 super-fountain style oscillator, and then managed
to shrink it further.
A fountain-type oscillator is one which has a phase in which a spark is separated from the body of
the oscillator by several cells distance. The maximum possible distance is the oscillator's period
less one. These isolated sparks make the oscillators useful in guns and other engineered objects.
Beluchenko also has found a Period 4 Oscillator component (which comes in two varieties) which can
be supported by Period 2 components.
By using Period 2 components to connect them, any number of these Period 4 components can be combined
to create wicks and rings.
He also found another set of Period 4 Oscillators whose halves can be recombined in various forms.
And finally one last small Period 4 Oscillator.
