*vastly*easier to do collaborative development and debugging. I just ran across a mathbin.net, a site that takes one step closer to nerd heaven, by allowing you to write mathematical equations using LaTeX’s notation; it then renders the mathematics as inline images, using LaTeX’s renderer. The results are beautiful; here’s an example of the Airy function defined over real values. Of course, you need to speak some LaTeX to be able to generate such beautiful images:

So mathbin is wonderful, but it’s not for everyone 🙂`\mathrm{Ai}(x) = \frac{1}{\pi} \int_0^\infty \cos\left(\frac{t^3}{3} + xt\right) , dt.`

Handy tip about pastebin; I was looking for something similar only last week to share DocBook-related files with a mailing list. I checked a few of those free hosting sites, but most either spam you, require registration, or use pop-up ads (some rather, um, dubious).
