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

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

comment The correct pattern for Cases
@Algohi It does work on that list but it doesn't remove the new expression {{}} that is created. That is a different interpretation from what I intended. If you with to remove that you could use //. but be aware that it is inefficient. For greater efficiency one might use: Replace[list, {({} | _Sequence) ..} -> Sequence[], {1, -1}]

comment InterplationOrder, ListPlot3D and using AbsoluteOption to find value used. Slow using InterpolationOrder
Do I understand that your question can be summarized as: Why is using InterpolationOrder -> 1 slower than using the default option InterpolationOrder -> None? Is it really surprising that using interpolation is slower?

+1 because this is basically how I would do it. By the way you don't need Partition[#1, #2] &; instead use plain Partition.
