comment Compile Select returns “Null tensor with rank > 1 encountered at instruction 24”
The workaround to your problem really depends on how your real application looks like. For the toy-example you have given, there clearly are some nice alternatives but I assume that this was really only an example and has nothing to do with your real requirements. If the Select is only a call inside a large compiled function then I would probably just ignore/silence the warning. Can you give details about your real application?

comment How to generate random natural numbers in $[1, \infty)$?
@OleksandrR. Well said! The general question is very interesting and when we ignore the practical problems, there are some nice Gedankenexperimente that lead to easy solutions.

comment How to prevent Dynamic activity with colour swatches in V10+
One way is to clear FormatValues[RGBColor] =. after unprotecting it. I'm really wondering whether anyone uses these swatches. I hate them. It's as useful as having img=.. and then a big inline image on the right side. Awful.

comment Which elements of a large array are part of a set?
Very interesting is to look on the timings with varying sizes of set. It seems that on my machine (8-core Intel i7), I pretty much catch you around k>100. Szabolcs method beats you for small k, but it gets very slow for larger values and it's in a different complexity class.

comment How to replace a space by a comma
It's not so similar to JMs version and in fact, I was going to post exactly this solution, because I think it is noteworthy that a space-separated list of numbers can be imported as "Table". +1

comment Anti-aliasing not working in Mathematica 10 and Linux
@ilian Right. I saw now that this lib is given in the install-path of Mathematica and that gltest just fails. I have updated the new question here. It would be nice if you report back and in case you need further information from my machine, just drop me a mail: Uncompress["1:eJxTTMoPChZhYGAoSCwpykzOdshIzMksKi1JzNNLSQUAgX0JmQ=="]

comment Anti-aliasing not working in Mathematica 10.3 and XUbuntu
This seems to be a very related issue of of this one. Since the last issue was resolved with the update of Mathematica but this still persists, I'm opening this as new question.

@shrx Would you mind to repost your answer here. This is clearly a different bug and we should make an extra question for it. Please don't delete this answer until ilian has seen that we moved the topic.
