http://www.mathsisfun.com/numbers/pythagorean-triples.html - Spelling mistake at the bottom of the page, next to the 'Here's More' section. Nothing major though.

It says 'Pythagor**ae**n triples - Basics'.

I spent 1.5 hours solving the "Who owns the fish?" and 30 mins solving the "Who owns the crococile?". Well, it's real good practice!!!

Who owns the fish: German

Who owns the crocodile: Hannah

Hopefully I did not get them wrong!

What do we plan to do when the domain expires, BTW?

I know it's a long time away, and not necessarily relevant, but I just couldn't help asking.

And what does the future hold for MathsIsFun.com? I can sense that it's going to be something good.

Question: How come 'PM' turns into a capital 'p' with with a lowercase 'm', when they both should be capitals? I think it is part of the word censoring.

Nope, nothing to do with the word censoring. I just looked at the list of censored words and there's nothing there that would do anything to PM.

And.

It looks OK to me anyway.

Why did the vector cross the road?

It wanted to be normal.

Testing again:

P.m.

It only happens if you put a full stop after the letters.

Conclusion: I'm cursed.

It's appearing fine for you...but not for me:

P.M.

A bug, maybe?

OK, this is weird. Now it's appearing fine for me, but it still shows the mistake in the original post. I'll try the refresh button.

Are you sure you didn't just type P.m. by mistake? If I quote you, I see P.m. there as well, which implies that that's what you wrote. Any changes the forum makes happen only in displayed posts, not in the quotes. For example, if I say:

"Little Jimmy drags up his orange juice loudly."

Then the forum filter inadvertantly changes one of those words, but you can see what I meant by quoting me. I'd have thought it'd be the same for you and your P.m., but it's not.

No, I had made no mistake - It happened in Ganesh's 'Oral Puzzles' thread, and it's happening hear now.

No idea why...

There is a whitespace in-between the "Decima" and the "ls". There shouldn't be any.

As spotted here: http://www.mathsisfun.com/math.html

Under the C section.

EDIT: Another on the same page;

Greatest Commmon Factor

Triple "m" shouldn't exist in that word. Should inly be double "m".

As found under the G section here: http://www.mathsisfun.com/math.html

EDIT 2: Another mistake;

Replace the "o" with an "a".

Found under the I section here: http://www.mathsisfun.com/math.html

Found under the M section here: http://www.mathsisfun.com/math.html

EDIT 6: Another mistake;

Should be "Oct**a**hedron Net".

Found under the O section here: http://www.mathsisfun.com/math.html

EDIT: And another;
