Is there a way to get a new password if one has forgotten his?
I'm currently locked out of my wiki account with ID Dyablon.

If we keep on it, we can have them all done by summer break.

Default Distributed computing page edit

On the Distributed computing page, I made the following change:
Code:
By running one of these distributed computing projects, you can play an important role in solving one of these computational problems.
to
Code:
By joining one of these distributed computing projects, you can play an important role in solving one of these computational problems.
Although running a project would be good, too, I felt joining might appeal to a larger audience. If this corrupts the desired message, let me know and I'll reverse it. The author may have meant running the software for the project, but it didn't quite read that way to me. . .

On the pages Glossary and Exponent, should the definition also include something to the effect that the exponent is also referred to as the power to which the base number is raised?

I would say only the latter.

The page on Trial Factoring has the following:

"The simplest approach is to already have available a supply of small prime numbers to use as trial divisors."

I would like to suggest a slight change, in that as it now reads, it could be interpreted as suggesting that only some of the smaller prime numbers are needed, when in fact, all primes up to the square root+1 are needed.

Suggestions/Comments?

The Wiki is now reporting 300 articles.

And some of the links that were carried over from borrowing articles from wikipedia have been "wished away into the corn field".

It appears mersennewiki has been "broken" for more than a day now.

Code:
Parse error:  syntax error, unexpected T_NAMESPACE, expecting T_STRING in /usr/www/users/vang/mersennewiki/includes/Namespace.php on line 52

An upgrade to PHP 5.3.2 borked everything.
