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 Adding Lists Together
Oh my god. This is embarrassing. I've been reading through the List documentation for ages, when this was right in front of me.

comment Obtaining EditDistance[] from a List of Strings
I was similarly surprised (even Levenschtein distance, which the documentation quotes, is a bit different at least in the courses I've taken). This'll do for a quick and dirty solution though, but yes, too bad there are no options...

Thanks for the extra approach, it's always great to add another command to my toolkit.

+1 - the results are already flowing out. And thanks for that extra addition, I could see that being very helpful.

comment Stopping Evaluation of Manipulate after it goes through once
@SjoerdC.deVries @celtschk Since RuleDelayed and this answer have both really gotten me over a hump in my work and have helped me understand the behaviour of my programs (which were sucking resources/occasionally crashing before), just a sincere thanks to both of you!

revised Command to Show Full Output
added some code blocks and broke up the paragraph - bit hard to read as a chunk of text?

comment Borked Find Window in OS X
For what it's worth, I have the same issue and I'm also not doing anything too taxing. I find that if I close the borked find window, it works on the second try. I'll be watching this closely as its an annoying problem!

comment inverse function not working — but providing values for some arguments, a symbol otherwise?
It might help if you could re-post your code so that it is easily copied and pasted into Mathematica (i.e. without the Ins] and with the Outs separated. A bit more context might help too.
