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

FWIW the OP already asked this as a new question, which was subsequently marked as a duplicate.

comment Getting increased accuracy for roots of determinant
All of your numbers will need to have sufficient precision. You force (false) precision with SetPrecision (or SetAccuracy if more appropriate), e.g. newdata = SetPrecision[data, 50].

@user9876 You're welcome. Rather than extending your question please consider posting a new one; also, I don't understand what you want to do with the "world map" -- have you seen this question?

comment Getting increased accuracy for roots of determinant
Without testing this, I will bet that you are using machine precision numbers or arbitrary precision numbers with insufficient precision. Could you provide a sample of your data or at least describe it better?

comment Invert Colors Stylesheet White on Black
You should indeed be able to do this using style sheets, but I think you will need to manually provide styling for every type. Possibly you could automate this by processing the style sheet data itself but given that styles are spread between at least the Default and Core style sheet Notebooks this may be more complicated than doing it manually.
