Version 10 empowered!


(also known as Spartacus)


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

check again; I just fixed it. :-p ― Spartacus


"This is the internet, where the men are men, the women are men and the children are FBI agents..." ― yoda Dec 18 '11 at 6:06


"My main purpose of being here is in collecting the votes. I'd even go further and say that this is my main purpose in life." ― Leonid Shifrin


"I am making some voodoo dance and invoking the rain God while we talk" ― belisarius


Some people are fortunate. Others get married. ― belisarius


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


"ListContourPlot crush on simple 5-points data" (Question title)

"Yes, this must be love at first sight."ruebenko


... but I am working with a large body of code written by an incompetent fool (i.e. myself, several years ago...) – Simon Woods


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


No, but they nowadays let me turn off the lights at night; 24 hours of fluorescence was really starting to make me feral. Brett says I should also mention the tip jar... – Daniel Lichtblau Mar 13 '12 at 20:48

comment What is the right place for user-defined init.m?
Files in $UserBaseDirectory will (should) also remain when you uninstall Mathematica or upgrade versions. They are also simpler to back-up.

comment Can you regroup terms into a sum?
I recall that a similar question has been asked before, and I do not believe that any general answer was (or can be) given. However if you give a sample of your expression I may be able to recommend a method.

+1 and a reopen for your update. This is the kind of additional thought and detail required for a good question.

comment How do I format the output to include the function definition?
@Chip Why not Row[{HoldForm[f], f}, "\[LongEqual]"]? I believe that uses the proper spacing rules.

comment Why doesn't this pattern work?
You're welcome. By the way I realize that the close text on this one is a bit dismissive: "simple," "easily," but that is not my intent. I could instead close this as a duplicate of one of the linked questions in the comment above if you would prefer. Also the community may weigh in and decide to reopen it.

comment Bug(?) in version 10: Tooltip and ListPointPlot3D
This looks like a bug. Also Tooltip /@ RandomReal[{0, 1}, {50, 3}] does not work when I believe it should, as it does in ListPlot.

comment Colorize Grayscale Image
@Developer2000 I added colorize2fast which tests somewhat faster still on my machine. Please try it.
