"Thank you for this living math warehouse"
 
   AlexB,

I must congratulate you, as the soul of this more than excellent website running as living warehouse of math, at all levels and where you can find almost everything, from intricated or rare theorem proof, to just math for fun.It is also a place for teachers and parents where they can rely on resourses in their education tasks for the better of all us.

However I really do not know, how to accomplish a better math typing that would make easier composing a message for the exchange of views, since most of wordprocessor are ill-prepared to handle properly math notation and when once you post your message some information get crippled.

In that sense I thougth that would be and beautiful tool, when we are editing a message on the site, if we could have at some conerpart of the webpage like a cellbox with the common math symbols inside where by clicking the mouse on the requested one, we could drag or insert it in the desired place.

Perhaps my suggestion sounds to a science fiction one, but I am sure that with the amount of brilliant people that visit your site they might come with some improvement on the subject.

Once again thanks for the relentless endeavour and tireless work I am sure you must input to keep this webpage running for the benefit of a boundless math community.

The software I use for the forum is canned. I purchased it in 2001 and, except for a few small upgrades, never myself tried so much as modify it. On the other hand, it is always possible to create an attachment: a diagram, a pdf or Word doc file.

I am absolutely open in this respect. If anybody volunteered to help out I could not be more grateful.

The simple fact is I just enjoy doing this.
