The text says "Astronaut Stefanyshyn-Piper can now factor 11 digit prime numbers in her head."

Anyone can. Hehe. Prime numbers have no factors.

Dac, just hit the "quote" button on Dave's message, as if you were going to reply. You can then see the code he used to point to the URL. Then abort your reply.

For direct images, use (img) and (/img), but in square brackets, not round.

Right now you can only leave images that are posted somewhere on the net as a URL. It's handy to have your own website for this.
I hope they give this version of the forum the ability to upload images directly again, like it used to be before they upgraded.
