Caterer (xp3_4hh186z07)

#C [[ GRID THUMBLAUNCH THUMBSIZE 2 THEME Catagolue ]]
x = 1, y = 1, rule = B3/S23
b!
This pattern is an oscillator.
This pattern is periodic with period 3.
This pattern runs in standard life (b3s23).
The population fluctuates between 12 and 16.
This evolutionary sequence works in multiple rules, from b3-kys2-n3air through to b34-anz5-ai6-a78s234-ajr5-inr6-ck78.

It's hard to explain how to do these formatting tricks here without the formats taking effect. So here's a summary posted somewhere safer:

Here's hoping I haven't made any typos and this works on the first try, because comment preview and edit options are conspicuously missing...!
