Starry Night

This is what I got after a few random mutations... Quite a nice starry night featuring Big Bang, stars and even a few constellations. Does anybody have a computer powerful enough?

Nope   The game doesn't take advantage of multiple cores either, so you're limited (unless you run multiple instances) to the flat speed of whatever CPU your computer has.  Since cores significantly faster than 2Ghz are rare, everyone's sort of stuck at 1 cyc/sec.  I'm doing some research though to try and construct a new version that runs maybe 10X the speed you got.
