@Minsky Might do for you, doesn't for most of us
@Minsky You have to have the MathJaX extension set up for the particular pages you are interested in
 
6:14 AM
I have it set in both, there is a button 'MathJax' but won't run in the physics forum. Anyways, thank you ! @JosephWright
 
6:35 AM
@Minsky not sure why it doesn't work in the other chat but I wouldn't run a personal mathjax extension on an interactive site like this as it means you do not see the text everyone else sees, which confuses the conversation.

@JasperHabicht Thanks very much! Yes, I think you are right. What about the math font? Can you make a guess?
 
@DavidCarlisle Since everyone writes $formulas$ in the chat in the Physics SE forum, I came to think that they all run some extension. Of course, maybe I should just ask. Also, it's strange this isn't enabled by default, it's just a js script.
 
@Minsky we don't use mathjax in chat or on the main Q&A site here as usually we need to see tex output, not javscript emulation of tex
@Minsky mathjax is enabled at math and physics stackexchanges as a site setup, not via indvidual extensions
 
8:53 AM
@Rmano ooh squirrels are good at chewing reading books :)
@cfr yay!
 
@PauloCereda no more f... but i can still have b....
 
@DavidCarlisle oh no
 
@DavidCarlisle I see, but in PSE (chat) I don't think it's just a setup, in the chat room itself, there is a link to this post: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/97938/…, which is where i found the extension.
but i think you meant in the Q&A site itself, which makes sense.
just read a comment there lol > amazing. let me install mathjx so i can type formulas as well
 
9:49 AM
@Minsky sorry yes I only use chat here. But the basic comment I made above still applies, it doesn't help to run a personal mathjax in chat (unless everyone does it)
 
10:44 AM
@tush I think the math font is more or less the same font as for the text. Of course, the two integral signs are quite special and were probably taken from another set of glyphs. I am really not sure which math font would have glyphs similar to these.

@PauloCereda <3
 
12:40 PM
@PauloCereda or at least at having them on the desk... (need to find time!) ;-)
 
 
1 hour later…
1:48 PM
@barbarabeeton you have a semicolon question to answer!
 
@DavidCarlisle -- Yeah, I noticed that, but sadly, I'm left answerless. Whoever came up with that formulation deserves to be subdivided. It looks intractable in any sensible system. Wait and see what Asmus has to say.
 
@barbarabeeton I think the listed authors should take equal blame "collective responsibility" don't you agree?
 
@DavidCarlisle -- Except I am pretty sure that formulation wasn't physically present in the published TR. (In other words, I'm trying to weasel out of responsibility.)
 
 
3 hours later…
5:19 PM
ooh
 
5:37 PM
@PauloCereda -- The part score for the cannons in the 1812 Overture must be pretty similar. (Indeed, that's a nice one.)
 
@barbarabeeton ooh boom :)
 
@PauloCereda you don't have mail
 
@DavidCarlisle ooh
 
@PauloCereda seemed simpler than listing everyone else who did:-)
 
5:52 PM
@DavidCarlisle 70's optmization, I see :)
 
@PauloCereda ooh you're so modern
 
@DavidCarlisle ooh
 
6:12 PM
Thanks for the mail @DavidCarlisle!
 
@mickep You'll make @PauloCereda jealous
 
@DavidCarlisle oh
 
@DavidCarlisle should I make him jealous too? In the proposed table the meaning of X and ? is imho a bit unclear, does that mark things that are there (but what about digits?) or that should be there (but greek should be filled up).
 
@UlrikeFischer ooh
 
@UlrikeFischer X means there ? means not there (in the current definition for the first table and in the proposal for the second) I thought about using checkmark and cross but wanted to keep it ascii (using Unicode for a unicode proposal seemed too adventurous)
 
6:19 PM
we ducks are very good at tables
 
@PauloCereda but are you good at keeping secrets?
 
@DavidCarlisle always :)
 
@UlrikeFischer can you please provide me with an MWE for the "% etl doesn't like an invalid?" comment here: github.com/ho-tex/soul/commit/…
 
6:37 PM
@Skillmon this here (and you do not need to worry imho, the ho-tex test are questionable here, I often have to remove some invalid settings when the code changes.
\documentclass{article}
\catcode`\?=15
\usepackage{etl}
\catcod`\?=12

\begin{document}
blub
\end{document}
@DavidCarlisle I would perhaps use e.g. (X) for the cases where the support is only partial.
 
@UlrikeFischer well, yes, that's something on which I will not act. etl defines a faster but slightly less stable version of \tl_if_head_is_group:nTF that is usable because I have total control over the expansion on those points.
(and I don't think that the ho-tex approach of setting up every catcode at the start of a package is reasonable)
 
@Skillmon I quite agree. But it does it only in some test files (to check if some catcode changed) but it is a pain if you add a char that wasn't previously in the code ...
 
7:00 PM
@Nasser most likely there were already replies to this, but: Ford will tell you: You bought a truck which is designed to carry heavy loads, not to run fast. If you want a fast car, buy a Mustang.

@DavidCarlisle That mail looks entirely sensible to me
 
@JosephWright oh no
 
7:34 PM
@JosephWright thanks, I just made an issue for ;;; so I'll probably post that one tomorrow, any thoughts welcome
 
@DavidCarlisle All sounds good - but based on what I got about arrows ... committee is very picky to the point of missing the importance of requests
@DavidCarlisle I'm minded to log one about the whitespace change: it's entirely at-odds with the stability claims
 
8:13 PM
@JosephWright I think this was the correct reply? :-) tex.stackexchange.com/questions/696521/remaping-align-to-or/…
 
@DavidCarlisle Er, broadly yes, at least if you don't want to write your own format from scratch
 
8:44 PM
OMG TEH SHEEP PERSON IS HERE
@Plergux hiiiii /baaaaa
 
@DavidCarlisle what were you cooking?
 
@UlrikeFischer duck stuff that had survived us being out the house for 2 weeks:-)
 
@DavidCarlisle oh no
 
8:59 PM
@PauloCereda BEING surely
 
@JosephWright ooh
 
9:47 PM
@barbarabeeton thanks for the reply to the mail not sent to @PauloCereda
 
@DavidCarlisle oh no
