Hey!

When are you going to start using a better formula display technology. Formulas in text mode suck big time.

Example: t = r x (n-2)^(1/2) / (1-r^2)^(1/2)

Why is this bad?
1) x multiplication is to easy seen as an x variable
2) fractions: Numerators and denomiators should be more clear
3) No symbols so ^(1/2) is used instead of a square root symbol?

The formulas are hard enough to remember and this format just isn't readable.
