@xslittlegrass I see. No idea then.

Look: Plot[{Re@#, Im@#} &@((-1)^x), {x, 1.5, 2.5}]

comment Can't type in notebook in version 10
The same thing happened to me a couple of times (also on OS X). Quitting Mathematica and restarting it fixed it both times. Interestingly, when I quit, it put up a dialog to save a few of the notebooks, and there I could interact with it (to click on yes or no). Very strange.

comment Integral of x^p
Oh right that's why it doesn't work in mathematica. Oops, pattern recognised the wrong thing, I'm an idiot sorry.

comment Integral of x^p
Actually the log is recovered in the limit. It's just that mathematica doesn't recover it correctly.

comment Integral of x^p
Well, $\lim_{p\rightarrow -1} \frac{x^{p+1}}{p+1}=\ln(x)$. Not that mathematica knows this, though (try Limit[x^(1 + p)/(1 + p), p -> -1])

comment What are the best tips in Michael Trott's beer/whiskey Wolfram Blog post?
@Artes While I meant my question as a joke (you were completely direct, the "joke" was to ask for elaboration on something completely explicit), I agree with the overall sentiment.

comment ToExpression from commandline
I think it is a bug, in the sense that eg Plot[Sin[x],{x,-5,5}] doesn't cause mma to hang. So, while I agree that the fact that it fails is not a bug, that it hangs seems to be. Or am I missing something?

comment Importing multiple images for machine learning classification
something like Import[#] & /@ FileNames["folder/*.jpg"] is what you want. Mathematica has about 3 gigabytes of documentation.

comment Finding average error of the data
@Mike a) that code doesn't work unless I know temp, b) is it too much to ask what doesn't work with LinearModelFit or the NonlinearModelFit example I gave?
