See those two pins? Well today I'm going to... stick them in you.


Ok, let me come clean: Mr.Wizard is actually an alias of mine... I'm glad I can finally confess. ― Sjoerd C. de Vries

No, I'm Spatac... I mean, Mr.Wizard! ― R.M

I'm Mr.W, and so's my wife! ― acl


@Spartacus, it was not fixable. ― rcollyer

It's not that easy to do the untangling even manually though. – Szabolcs

Maybe you could turn it into a puzzle and let other people do the untangling :-) – Heike

I could make a web based game, and feed all my graphs to the visitors.
SE is a big game, isn't it? :D – Szabolcs

I was tempted to edit your title: "Do rules rule?" But my nose is still bleeding as a result of a limerick. – belisarius

comment HoldForm doesn't hold form
I just noticed that I never had the InputForm problem so I don't know if that has been fixed in 10.0.1 or not. If that still exists please edit the header accordingly.

comment Choppy curves with Manipulate
@MathLind I remembered (some of the content of) one of them, and from there I was able work my way to the other two. If I had remembered my own (simpler) answer first I would have found links to the first two but I did it backward. Get in the habit of looking at the "Linked" section of the sidebar to the right of a question; sometimes they are only tangentially related but fairly often there is good information, and one link often leads to another.

Regarding the second problem you can use ControlActive to specify sufficiently high PlotPoints. Please see these for an understanding of the problem: (4572183), (29346) Also my own answer to: (8482)

comment Kernel crashes when plotting $z=\sqrt{(x^2 + y^2)^0}$
@Mark I think a good case can be made for the first one being a comment as it can't possibly resolve the issue like a patch or a "this is fixed in ..." however as you can see this answer has been Accepted. I think that is a reasonable result.
