comment How to get the list of notebooks that are automatically opened when Mathematica starts?
Options[$FrontEnd] gives you the same info as the option inspector. But I always thought that Mathematica will only auto-open notebooks on OS X, and that's an OS X feature, not a Mathematica feature. (I might be wrong.)

comment Implement settable properties
Regarding why I need an object ID, and why this is non-negotiable: the ID is a handle to a data structure implemented in C, not in Mathematica, and I'm also using managed library expressions. Obj[1] and Obj[2] refer to different data structures.

comment How do I plot points on a sphere using spherical coordinates?
Transform the coordinates to Cartesian form, then use ListPointPlot3D.

comment MinGW-64 and CompilationTarget -> “C”: can't make library
Related: mathforum.org/kb/message.jspa?messageID=7841068 It looks like to use MathLink (not LibraryLink) some libraries need to be converted first. I don't know much about this.

comment Changes to colouring in Mathematica 10
... For some reason, the Manipulate still seems to work as one would naively expect, but that's only because A$1234 has leaked from Module and is not being cleared as it normally would. To sum up: it looks like a very bad idea to use Module around Manipulate.

comment Changes to colouring in Mathematica 10
Manipulate is evaluated in a special way, that I don't understand fully. It is not actually evaluated, just formatted in a special way. After creating a Manipulate, checking its InputForm shows that the head is still Manipulate. Anyway, the point is that by the time the guts of Manipulate get evaluated, that variable A is not localized any more. ...

comment Mathematica 10 doesn't support path containing Chinese characters
Works fine on OS X. This is expected to be OS-dependent. Are you on Windows? What language version of Windows? There's also a setting in Windows (which I don't know where it is anymore, as I don't have a Windows computer here) that will adjust the character set for software that doesn't support Unicode. If you like to use Chinese path names, it's worth setting that to Chinese. Otherwise non-Unicode-aware Windows programs won't see those paths.

@sebhofer With front end or in a terminal? Or those timings less than 0.1 second?

Interesting trick. But what if I do obj =. next? The up-value stays.

Of course all this is not necessary at all to get the work done, it would just be nice to have :-)
