Well my dear readers, let me first apologize for being missing from action for a significant amount of time
But belieive me, I do hope to make it up
God willing, I shall spend some time during this weekend on another multi-device project using Delphi/FireMonkey and come up with a newest version of famous “Game Of
Death Life” which could be working on all sorts of platforms…. well at least on Windows, MacOS, iOS, Android and yes on Linux too …..
For any one curious as what is “Game of
Death Life” ….you can surely get initiated and get some background info from following link:
If I may take the liberty to quote from website of Stanford University,
The Game of Life was invented in 1970 by the British mathematician John Horton Conway. Conway developed an interest in a problem which was made evident in the 1940’s by mathematician John von Neumann, who aimed to find a hypothetical machine that had the ability to create copies of itself and was successful when he discovered a mathematical model for such a machine with very complicated rules on a rectangular grid. Thus, the Game of Life was Conway’s way of simplifying von Neumann’s ideas. It is the best-known example of a cellular automaton which is any system in which rules are applied to cells and their neighbors in a regular grid. Martin Gardner popularized the Game of Life by writing two articles for his column “Mathematical Games” in the journal Scientific American in 1970 and 1971.
Well that is it for now, I am keeping my fingers crossed and hope to come back soon with something worthwhile to share more on this, so do come back soon
