This is the original Game of Life (GOL) Version 1.3 Code
As dowloaded from http://www.ladyada.net/make/conway/download.html
And distibuted under the GPL.
Version 1.4 Update to reduce oscillating patterns
by Datamn, aka Charley Jones, GOL@CRJones.Com
GitHub.Com/Dataman/GOL
Also distributed under the GPL.
Only one 1.4 chip is needed in GOL array to stop oscillations.
One 1.4 will monitor up to 16 historical snapshots looking for
identical patterns. After 50 such comparisons, the 1.4 board will inject
a random pattern resetting the array.
