( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I am responding a bit late to this one, since everybody has responded in a general manner, I'll be specific and give you my opinion on why those nodes don't have a very high reputation:

Re: modular exponentiation with arbitrary precision binary numbers (did I say RSA?)
Correct me if I am wrong, but if neshura editted it (ten days after you posted, from the looks of it), I would have to guess that it was originally posted without code tags. Time goes on, nobody votes it up because it is not properly formatted - by the time it is editted, everybody has already seen it and doesn't think to look at it again.

Re: if condition only returns false . . .>
Good, correct answer. But very brief. The only monk I know that consistantly uses brief replies to their advantage is the ubiquitous I0.

Those are just my assumptions and opinions - I merely wish to help out, not razz you. As for general reasons why good nodes don't get the reputation they deserve, well, it's all about timing and association (don't expect replies to a stupid question to get a lot of ++'s - it happens, just don't expect it). .

I can tell that you have learned a valuable leason of experience whoring - advertise. It works, just go back and look at how much the reps on your two nodes have already risen. :)
