It is unclear how newpointer and pointer are modified by the AT** and GC** commands. Could you supply C-equivalents to the BF-commands specifying how the two pointers are changed? --MizardX 10:00, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for this helpful advice.--Benni++ 18:31, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

I want to stab the inventor of this in the face sooo much... Phantom Hoover 08:53, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

Shouldn't only three DNA bases be needed to code for each amino acid (instruction)? —Maharba 21:59, 7 April 2011 (UTC)

I wondered if this project was still active. If not, I would quite like to take over as I love the idea and think it would be a shame for it to go to waste! Foggalong 23:19, 14 April 2012 (GMT)

It seems like the language is fully-specified. If you just want to make an implementation, then you don't have to ask permission to do that for any language on the wiki :)
If you want to extend or modify the language, however, then the best thing to do might be to create a derivative, with its own article. Otherwise, since the language doesn't seem to be a work in progress, it'd be best to contact the author if you want to change DNA# itself; unfortunately, since they have no email associated with their account and haven't edited since 2009, that might be pretty difficult. —ehird 00:09, 15 April 2012 (UTC)
Really? Well that's brilliant! I'm glad to here it's as simple as that :) I have tried to find contact information for Benni++ and have even found what appears to be his families website but as you say, not contact information seems to be available.
As a side note, I seem to remember their being a message that came up when I created my account in saying accounts got deleted if the user didn't log in within 30 days (or something along them lines). If this is true, does this mean Benni++ has been logging in? - Foggalong 10:54, 15 April 2012 (GMT)
Nope, user accounts are never deleted; if they were, we wouldn't have so many spam accounts lying around. I recommend that you make a derivative if you want to extend the language, and leave a message on Benni++'s talk page about it; on the off chance that he returns, you could ask him if he wants to merge it back into DNA# proper. —ehird 10:19, 15 April 2012 (UTC)
Sounds like a plan. Thanks for the advice! - Foggalong 18:51, 16 April 2012 (GMT)
I am sorry ^^ I havent logged into this since years TT. I am happy that you like the idea ;) Feel free to extend/modify the language as you wish, i am not working on esoteric laguages anymore. I will add an email-adress to my account so you can contact me if you wish. I just realized the links are dead. That should be something i should fix within the next days. --Benni++ (talk) 11:22, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

I have taken the freedom to add an alternative to '=' for TAAT allowing unambiguous interpretation of the symbol language. - Crave (talk) 14:10, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
