On what project is MIF working right now?

Probably working and also doing Mathopolis and perhaps more.

Probably working

On what?

I do not know if that is possible. I have never worked on a forum before.

I can help you go through it. Or better yet, Stefy can.

His job, likely.

Is he employed as a mathematician? Wow!

I don't know, but I would guess he works as a programmer?

Perhaps.

You've created a forum before.

I was saying that if MIF is busy with dark secrets of the universe, you can help him installing the new software.

"Making" that forum required me to sign up and press a few regular and radio buttons.

I've created a forum by uploading code and extracting plugins. The experience is slightly better.

Therefore you should be the one to help MIF.

Nope. I will help bobbym. He will help MIF.

Then there is Shivam, who is a great Coder and a 3013

Isn't he a biologist?

He is a biologist, a programmer, and a mathematician. You do not know that?

I do. I was just joking.

He might be able to help. We should ask bobbym to ask MIF to ask Shivam if he can help.

That is a long chain of asking.

I can't wait to see MIF come here.

I wouldn't use the word great, but I can program. What is a 3013?

Well, by background I am an electrical engineer, technically speaking, and am pursuing a biology BsC now.

Don't think migrating a forum that big is easy at all. It might take months of planning, why not give the theme a upgrade? And add mathjax in?

Hi;

The forum already has its own latex plugin. True, mathjax is the standard but I think it is a little funky for FF users.

I agree about upgrades to the forum.

Getting the fonts to render correctly in FF has been a problem.

Wow! The big shot agrees.

Please give me a mathjax page so that I can justify what you are saying

I meant that upgrades are not as easy as everyone thinks.
