I'm a historian who also happens to tinker around in code for my research. My interests involve textual analysis, web scraping, and the like.

comment Comparing Unequal Lists of Surnames to Establish Over or Under-Representation
@celtschk Good catch - I've now put a ToUpperCase in my code that generated these lists. Thanks!

@celtschk And if I head the name, it's a string - I'm not 100% clear what you mean by symbols vs. strings.

comment Comparing Unequal Lists of Surnames to Establish Over or Under-Representation
@celtschk I've generated the list from getting a long list of names (some 650k of them) and then Sorting and Tallying, like so: Sort[Sort[Tally[names[[All, 1]]]], #1[[2]] > #2[[2]] &]. So they should be unique?

comment Can I put tooltips in a Graph?
I had a similar question a long time ago - David Carraher's answer may be useful for you. Good luck! stackoverflow.com/questions/7742126/…

comment Merging (combining) tables of graph relationships (2-mode to 1-mode network)
@belisarius Looks like it's all public knowledge, and just representing what you can find at http://www.nationaltimes.com.au/opinion/ASXmap. Whether it should all be so easily digestible and put together like this, though, I guess is a bit more of a judgement call (although since I think they're public corps...)!

comment How to find out available fonts from within Mathematica?
If you want to know what font the output is, you can highlight the text and open the text window (Ctrl + T or Cmd + T). For my system, your command leads to text in 'Lucida Grand'.

comment Visualize Pascal's triangle and other triangle shaped lists
Also discussed here, if you scroll down (with a nice Manipulate).

comment How can I interrupt Speak?
Fascinating - and if you execute something like Speak["test test test"]; Print["hi"], it executes the Print command before the first word is even spoken.

comment How do I remove the top bar and bottom bar from the Mathematica window?
I think that's part of the student version. When I upgraded to the full license, it disappeared. There was a very brief discussion about this over at the Student Support Forum, and the official line is that you can't remove it.

comment Mathematica's external controllers?
You can also connect microcontrollers, such as Arduino and Phidgets.
