I'm a biophysicist who escaped academia to work for Wolfram Research (in the UK) as a Technical Presenter - all opinions and badly optimised code my own.

comment MANIpulate. How to put labels and fit 24 vslides in a row?
@Mikalke added an embedded Manipulate for examples sake. Note that the localised variables work as necessary, but much less performant than using explicit Dynamic[expr] instead - there are good explanations of why elsewhere on SE.

comment Requesting explanation of FitModel code
Andy, as they're not documented frequently is it worth making clear SubValues are being set in the first code block?

comment How can I manipulate TemporalData?
Did you find a neat way to Rescale values of TemporalData? RescaleTimes obviously acts only on the times and not the values.

The Find window (Cmd/Ctrl+F) is a notebook, you might get something by exploring the functionality there: Get[FileNameJoin[{$InstallationDirectory,"SystemFiles","FrontEnd","SystemResour‌​ces","Find.nb"}]]

comment Why FrontEnd`KernelExecute doesn't work in KeyEventTranslations.tr?
You don't have to put them in KeyEventTranslations.tr, you can use MenuSetup.tr: MenuItem["Quit Current Kernel",KernelExecute[SystemModule[{nb},nb =System`NotebookPut[System`Notebook[{System`Cell["Quitting Kernel!", "Title",TextAlignment -> Center]},System`WindowMargins -> {{300, 300}, {300, 300}}]];System`Pause[1];System`NotebookClose[nb]];System`Quit[];],MenuEvaluator -> Automatic,MenuKey["Escape", Modifiers ->{"Control"}]]` All I'm missing is something like SystemStartKernel[]` for this to be practical.

comment Loading Cell Option Definitions on Kernel Launch for Stylesheets
@rm-rf thanks! Changing styles with Mike's stylesheetChanger will definitely be useful for other things I'm trying to do.

comment Make a Piecewise function in TraditionalForm
@HyperGroups typing Ctrl+, after this gives you grid boxes you can fill in. Such templates often live in the Classroom Assistant, this one lives under the Typesetting section.

comment Notebook UI: Autocompletion - Display function arguments when typing?
@murray that's strange, I use Cmd+K for Options frequently - have you changed any autocompletion preferences? It's interesting to note the Documentation doesn't mention this shortcut, Hyperlink["paclet:tutorial/UsingTheInputAssistant"], I found it by accident.

comment Notebook UI: Autocompletion - Display function arguments when typing?
To chime in, with M9 you can get a list of possible (but not all) Options for a function by pressing Ctrl+K (or Cmd+K) after the minimum number of arguments are provided to the function: i.e. Plot[x,{x,1,10}, then Ctrl+K

@JM cheers, there should be cheat sheets on you experts.

comment Triangle mapped on a sphere in $\mathbb R^3$?
As it's a simple transform it's not really appropriate, but do you know CoordinateTransform (further to the deprecated Vector Analysis package) exists as of 9?
