Hai-Etlik made a great suggestion that we implement MathJax (http://www.mathjax.org/) into the site for complicated mathematical notation to be presented with clarity. We've added this capability and it seems to work great. Here's an example of what this provides us with:

\[\sum^n_{k=1}k=\frac{n(n+1)}{2}\]

You can get more information at the MathJax website (http://www.mathjax.org/) and see samples of LaTeX and MathML in action.

Yay, I have a new way to confuse people with complex technical stuff.

Hehe, waldronate, I guess I need mentoring then.

I'm not one of those who's afraid to learn from someone else. There was a time back in school where I was doing Physics and Geometry and used a lot of the scientific calculation symbols but even with 15 years as a developer in I.S. I never used much of it. I did pick up more accounting than I ever wanted to know though. Pfft did I ever mention that I hate accounting? Anyway, long story short, my brain is all rusted in those areas. As far as maps go, hey, I'm a fantasy mapper. I'm not against learning the real deal as it can only help me do a better job of selling the fantasy but I only have so much time for the fun stuff in my life and I can't burn too much of it worrying about how to land a ship on the moon. :)

Unless I catch the bug...if that happens... Oh no, best not to even think about it. I would start burning the candle at both ends gobbling up everything I can get my hands on. Yeesh, I hope that doesn't happen I have too many other things to do, LOL.

I was joking about confusing people, sort of. I really do try to help people understand this stuff, It's just that I'm also aware that I'm not always successful, and that not everyone cares. I'm certainly not trying to intimidate anyone.

If you aren't trying to intimidate anyone, why is your avatar a planet-sized dragon?

First of all I suppose I should say hello.

Hello hello!

I've dropped by this place from time to time, but I just had to respond to this.

I honestly though you were talking about the Kerbal space program (http://kerbalspaceprogram.com/) here, but after some reflection I figured you were not. Still, if you do end up wanting to worry about how to land a ship on the moon ... do check out the free demo.

... Is this thread closed?

My previous post does not seem to have ... stuck.


it was stuck in our overly zealous auto-moderation for new posters queue. I've deleted the duplicate.

Well, I did use a rather ominous set of words including "advertisement". I half suspected it might be some-such-thing, the verification is much appreciated.
