@seism - 'fraid not. I didn't do anything to make it work, I just noticed it does! :-)

comment Kernel crash after idle in version 10.0
This is at least the third different crash report of version 10 here in the last 8 hours alone. I think I'll postpone my upgrade until 10.1 :-(

comment How to set an absolute path name using SetDirectory?
@seism - I tried it with a single backslash, and it also works. No error, no warning, no prompt.

comment Can I change the font of all elements in my barchart with one property?
Thanks a bunch. I presume the "14" is supposed to change the font size, but it doesn't do anything, not even when I add "FontSize->" in front of it. This did work for the BaseStyle solution you suggested in comment.

@MikeHoneychurch - This doesn't seem to change the font for the legends.

@MikeHoneychurch - Thanks again. Not sure about merging; the data is the same, but here it's about the font globally, which wasn't in the other question.

@magma - Apparently not, but I saw them in a notebook I got from WRI, and I sticked to it.

comment A train having 200 m length going speed of 60 km/hr. The Train crossed the bridge within 1 minute? Then what is the bridge length?
Do you have to solve this with Mathematica, the software? If not I would advice you to move the question to math.stackexchange.com.

Did you know there's a mathematica.stackexchange? I've flagged for migrating it there.

comment Have the Random functions changed?
@Artes - Thanks, I'll look at it. Any reason why it's better than Partition (which works now)?

comment Determining the week of a year from a given date
@John - Thanks for the upvote (I guess it's yours). Have you considered accepting a different answer, given that Heike's is not correct? (Doesn't have to be mine; mine is derived from Hans' answer.)

comment Determining the week of a year from a given date
@John - a year is at least 365 days long, which is 52 weeks + 1 day. If 1 January is week 1 (that's if it's a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday), then that extra day is in the 53th week, provided 1 January of the next year is a Friday, Saturday or Sunday. They're before week 1 because week 1 is the first week with a Thursday in it, so it's not week 1, nor week 52, because week 53 already started. If 1 January is a Friday, Saturday or Sunday then 1 January is the last week of the previous year, and 31 December will be week 52.

comment Determining the week of a year from a given date
@John - The code in my answer (which you also commented to) gives the correct week numbers. I explained there how you can have a week 53.

comment relative scale of elements in ImageCompose
Actually, when I think about it IMO the Epilog makes more sense: first you plot the data, and then you indicate which points are relevant, instead of first indicating the relevant points on an empty page. But I'm nitpicking, and that on a Saturday night :-). HANWE!

I can see the upvote indicator, and +2, but I'm not sure it was +1 before I voted.

comment relative scale of elements in ImageCompose
No, it's fine, and together with ssch's solution I like it better than kguler's. The reason for the transparency is that I'm more used to Epilogs than Prologs. I realize that I still often make the wrong choice == a lot to learn!
