comment FindRoot errors
ok cool. so is the idea that f2(x)=good(x)*bad(x) then if bad(a)!=Infinity and good(a)=0 then a is a solution to f2 ? In my example, badFactor/.sol is around 10^16.. can we say that that's not (or not going to) Infinity?

comment FindRoot errors
@sebhofer... that's pretty cool. I'm trying to read Daniel's answer but since it has details of the other question, it is not immediately clear to me why Rationalize reduces any numerical instability or other issues. If you can expand a bit on why Rationalize works then that would be awesome Thanks

comment Plot showing discontinuity where it shouldn't
@kguler Thank for for such an excellent explanation! I learnt about using limits in mathematica, especially inside a plot, as an additional bonus. :) It's interesting that you spotted that taking limits makes mathematica realize that the curve is continuous. cool beans!

comment Plot showing discontinuity where it shouldn't
@Artes but 1/2 (2 a x + (a - x)^2 UnitStep[-a + x]) is a continuous and even differentiable function whose derivative should be Max[x,a]. I guess MMA is not able to figure this out and I need to communicate it to MMA somehow.

@Artes ok that worked. Thanks! Do you have a sense of why I am getting an Intermediate when I differentiate?

@belisarius thanks. I'm happy to hear that I am complicating things. I'll try to find you in chat sometime.

@Mr.Wizard no but I suppose I could always sort it on the first column.

comment Export to Excel gives error for large lists
Thanks a lot for your answer. Do you have a sense of why this is working for *.xls but not for *.xlsx ?

comment Exporting data to a new excel sheet of a pre-existing excel file
@SjoerdC.deVries I spent a bit of time trying to mimic the .NET but I couldn't get it to work. Thanks for linking to it. I'm not very far from getting it. Whatever I am doing, does open the right excel file but as of now closes it right back. I'll look at it again in a few months when I have more time. Right now I have just switched to saving data as "*.dat" Thanks :)

comment saving Manipulate data inside a notebook
@MarkMcClure Thanks a lot for your answer. I used the SaveDefinitions right now and picked it as the accepted answer because that seemed simpler but I will now try your cell initialization method. I'm sorry, I can't believe that it has taken me 8 days to respond. Thanks a lot.
