Okay... it happened. I implemented Wireworld in GNU Emacs. Ascii art circuits ahoy!

I _really, really, really_ want to click "like" on this post... I'm a big fan of Ascii art... BUT... I don't use emacs (vi penance) and have no idea what Wireworld is :(

@George Standish Well, luckily! I just wrote about what wireworld is, but to reduce clicks, here it is on wikipedia and here's a whole computer built in wireworld. It's cellular automata, like Conway's Game of Life, but more circuit'y.

Luckily, if you're vi-accustomed, there's Spacemacs, which I hear is excellent.
