Population in generation t is asymptotic to
(5 log(t)^2)/(3 log(2)^2). More specifically, for
n>=2, the population in generation 960*2^n is
5n^2/3 + 60n + 1875 + (if n mod 3 = 0 then 0 else 25/3).
This uses a caber tosser, a modified block pusher, and a toggleable
p120 gun. Each glider from the caber tosser turns on the gun and
causes the block pusher to go through one cycle (sending out a
salvo and awaiting the return gliders). When the cycle is
complete, the gun is turned back off.
