Hi Jane;


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Hi theoldbrewer,

I can't figure out hide

Type this example, but leave out the space after the first bracket (I had to include the space so that my example wouldn't be hidden):

[ hide]Unique New York[/hide]

Here's what your attempt should look like after you remove the blank space after the first bracket:

If you want to give the hide tab a title, you can do it like this:

[ hide=Tongue twister]Unique New York[/hide]

This is what it should look like:
