A google search turned up that there was an article in the April 1984 issue
of The Color Computer Magazine on the game of life, accompanied by an ML
program, written by none other than our gracious host, Dennis Kitsz.

Perhaps that's the article you remember, in case it isn't one of the ones
you already found.

Seems to me that a Game of Life program in BASIC would be glacially slow.
