Conway's Game Of Life algorithm in 200 bytes.
Starts with an initial block of cells, iterates forever. Color intensity corresponds to a cell's lifetime.

It's my first such experiment, and it was made from scratch.
I included the source with comments, if you're interested. A lot of horrible code there, so I'd be happy if the sizecoding gurus helped me out with a few tricks :) I guess it could easly be done in 128 (or even less).

life2.com looks cool in the beginning but than bad things happen ;)
life.com is rather boring.
for the scene in the screenshot you get a thumb.

im no coder but the size seems rather large for the shown effect (but what do i know).
anyway it looks pretty so..

Yep, there's a flaw in the algorithm that it allows newly died/born cells to affect the remaining ones in the same iteration - which it shouldn't. Gonna have to fix that.

Fixed trhe algorithm in the current zip file.
Added the proper version, though it's not spectacular at all, and it cost me +34 bytes... I prefer the modified one.
