### gaim-latex plugin

There’s a very nice plugin for Gaim that allows one to send latex code via IM to other people who have the same plugin (if they don’t they just see the latex code).

I find it very usefull since I’m a student in a math department and I often exchange math fomulae with people even through IM.

I wonder how one would describe this latex code in “normal IM text”:

$$f( x) = \sum_{i=0}^{\infty}\frac{f^{( i )}(x )}{i!}$$

but…check this:

If you exchange math formulae with colleagues via IM … you’ll want this one 🙂
