# Speed of light?

By Murray Bourne, 28 Jul 2005

How come when you pay a bill via Internet banking, the message is:

Please note that the organisation may take 2 to 3 working days for the payment processing.

Oh yeah, that's right - the bank can make  on your money while they are waiting for it to "clear". Another banking scam...

This is absurd! No wonder there's the DHL "3-ring" ad.

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)
(See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with $$ and $$.
$$\int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}}$$
(This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can't mix both types of math entry in your comment.
