I think this line's mostly filler.

I don't think you missed any... did the puzzle originator say there were more?

counted twenty before I saw your diagram, posted, saw YOUR number, went back and now I've lost two of them.

wtf.

I'm confident that 18 is right. I think Undertoad counted Bruce's '8' and '11' twice.

I got 19, but then realized that I was counting one of them twice. I get 18.

If the picture was cropped so the triangle's points touched the edges, you could get to 20.
