an even better thing to do is take whatever formula you want, and paste it
into an excel worksheet, and have it generate a table..then make the table
into an exp_perlevel array..array lookups are faster than recalculating
every time someone types score or whatever..not to mention that you can
make a cool graph to see if the function actually looks like what you
think it should..


Hey man! That's an AWESOME idea :)
Thanks to everyone for their help, I managed to use all your ideas to fix it up I think... (have to test first <G>)
I changed my formula to: exp for next level = (exp for last level/100) * (level +100).
Also, I looked at it as a chart, and saw there was a shocking rise once it got to about level  44, so at level 45 I changed it to:
exp for next level = ((exp for last level/100) * (level + 100)) / 1.1 This flattened it out a LOT!
like from 575 million to 225 million at level 55 (my last mortal level).

Anyway, thanks to everyone who replied, any comments are appreciated.
