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. My main reason for joining StackExchange is to participate in Mathematica.SE. I enjoy answering question when I can, but I also enjoy working at making the site a better place to visit.

I started using Mathematica in 1997 (Ver. 3). I am currently using Ver. 10.0.2. 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.

comment Save figure using default stylesheet?
Can you give us an idea of what you would consider better? Without some idea of what constitutes "better", your question is too broad IMO.

comment Function with variable arguments
You can also define a default value for c. For example, f[a_, b_, c_:3] := {a, b, c}. Then f[1, 2, 42] gives {1, 2, 42} and f[1, 2] gives {1, 2, 3}.

How about temporarily changing your notebook's style to Default, doing the export, and changing it back to your original style?

comment Clicking on “Show all results” in a W|A pod hangs Mathematica
I can not reproduce your problem on my system -- V10.0.2 running under OS X 10.6.8. You might try ==Forest Gump if you want a fuller answer from W|A.
