I am a retired software developer. I retired at the end of 2003 and since then my computer programming activities have been for recreational purposes. I find Mathematica excellent for that.

I started using Mathematica in 1997 (Ver. 3). I am currently using Ver. 9. Although I have used Mathematica for all kinds of stuff, I use it mostly to pursue my long standing interest in Euclidean geometry, both in the classical Greek synthetic form and in the more modern analytical form.

The line is caused by a discontinuity in your functions at t == 0. See these articles in the Wolfram Language Documentation Center: Exclusions and ExclusionsStyle .

comment CPU usage remains at 13% even after I quit the kernel
You haven't given enough information about your work environment for anyone to be able to help. What OS and processor are you using? How did you quit "the" kernel? Does it happen repeatedly? What is the CPU usage with at the start of a new session with no notebook? Does the problem happen when you start Mathematica by double-clicking on notebook icon? etc., etc.
