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

comment Linear function on strings using UpValues
@Marius Glad I could help. Another formulation you might consider is: Sup[i_Integer] := i; Sup[x : _[__]] := Sup /@ x. This maps Sup over any compound expression. Atoms such as Strings or Integers are then individually handled.

comment Changing the atom color for plotting xyz-files
Great find! For the particular problem I can't imagine a better answer. I still do like the generality of my approach and I hope people find value in it elsewhere.

comment Plotting jump function without vertical lines
@yadaddy You can only Accept one answer but as you have discovered you can always change it. Also you should not feel pressured to Accept any particular answer; it's a personal choice. However when I lose an Accept I often wonder if I could have provided a better answer, which is why I asked.

@yadaddy I am curious why you switched the Accept to this answer. Is it not similar to my myPlot approach? However using Plot is not as efficient as drawing Lines directly. If there is a problem with my code please let me know and I shall try to correct it.

@yadaddy You're welcome. Now that I confirmed what you want I'll give you another way to generate it. Look for an update in a few minutes.

@Artes Are you going to post that as an answer or do you think this should be closed as a duplicate?

comment Create group from multiplication table
Would you be willing to add another example or two? The scope of your question is not clear to me. Does your input always reduce to a simple CyclicGroup or do you need something more robust than that?
