comment How does Mathematica decide that Log[2,8] is integer?
Aaah, I should have dug deeper in the documentation :-(. I knew about Log10[], but didn't know there was a Log2[] as well. Thanks. (No need for Taylor here)

comment How does Mathematica decide that Log[2,8] is integer?
I was aware of the bit twiddling (I'm an electronics engineer and have low-level programmed lots of microcontrollers), but I thought the bit twiddling would be Mathematica's job, not mine :-). Still +1, thanks.

comment How to plot a quarter of circle using Mathematica?
@Mr.Wizard - I don't see how this wouldn't answer OP's question. Granted Vitaliy doesn't use Plot, but ParametricPlot isn't Plot either. And with Graphic and Circle the result is there! :-)

comment Faster alternatives for DayOfWeek
I see you guys always use AbsoluteTiming, which gives you the elapsed real world time. Isn't Timing more appropriate, since it only seems to count the time spent by the kernel?

comment Why is AstronomicalData so slow?
Have you actually tried this? This doesn't do anything at all, it just returns an empty list { }. But it does it fast! :-)
