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

"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

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

... 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

Please give a more concrete example. Also are you using Wolfram Mathematica or should this be moved to another site?

I agree with becko.

comment Why Infinity /. _?(# < 6 &) -> 0 replaces Infinity with ComplexInfinity?
Great summary answer. I regularly recommend FullForm for understanding pattern matching you went well beyond that. FWIW I think my heldCases is useful for debugging patterns as the matched items are not inadvertently evaluated. If you agree would you mind including mention of it?

comment PlotLegends won't generate automatically more than 15 labels in v10
@Bob A shorter way to write that: Length /@ ColorData["Indexed", "ColorList"] // Tally

@SquareOne "Expressions" is not a color scheme. The default colors for Plot in v10 are given by ColorData[97, "ColorList"] (length 15).

comment How does Mathematica interpolates?
While this question is not a duplicate I believe "(it) already has an answer here" does apply so I am joining belisarius in voting to close. If anyone feels this question is not adequately addressed there please let me know.

Thanks, Simon. It would be nice to see this kind of functionality well integrated into Mathematica before Facebook etc., IMHO.
