In particular, in gen 720 n^3 + 28620 n^2 + 60n + 3840 the population is 15n + 4524. This uses two salvos which are sent toward blocks along the southeast diagonal. Usually there are 2 blocks on the diagonal. At such times, a 3-glider salvo pulls the nearest block 5 units and sends back a glider. This is done repeatedly, waiting for the return glider from each pull before sending the next one. When the nearest block is pulled as far back as possible, it is deleted, and a 5-glider salvo is sent toward the other block; the salvo duplicates the block, creating a new one 10 units farther away and another one 10 units closer. Deleting the eater on the western edge of the pattern gives population asymptotic to C2 t^(2/3), where C2 = (45/256)^(1/3). In particular, in gen 720 n^3 + 28620 n^2 + 60 n + 3840 the population is 45 n^2 + 15n + 4522. Dean Hickerson, 10/10/2006
