comment May I restrict caching to disk when memory runs low?
You may have to be patient, but normally Windows does not actually freeze when this happens. If you can stand to wait for a few minutes (possibly up to 10), it's a better alternative than switching off the computer. Obviously it's better still to prevent this situation occurring in the first place, but that's not always possible.

comment GUI->Text code conversion
Could you please explain what is "GUI based code" and "text user interface code"? I have been using Mathematica for over 10 years and never came across these terms before.

comment Need help in understanding code
What has code refactoring got to do with the question? Anyway, I doubt if anyone here can help you divine what the original author's intent was. Why not ask them?

comment Fit convoluted Gaussian and Lorentzian functions to a peak profile
Yes, you can do it this way. But there is VoigtDistribution already available, which saves you the trouble.

comment Testing Credit Usage in Wolfram Programming Cloud
Although this is of general interest to visitors to this site, please bear in mind that we are just users like you, and have no special knowledge of how WRI charges for services. I'd suggest seeking an answer from WRI directly and then posting the response as an answer to your own question.

comment Mathlink program with low cpu usage on linux machines only
You'd better compile your code with symbols included and link against the debug versions of the MathLink libraries. Then, profile your code. Otherwise, without the code (or another example that demonstrates this issue) and the ability to isolate the problem, it sounds like it would be very difficult to answer you conclusively.

comment Numerical evaluation of ChebyshevT
Numerical instability. N without any precision specified works in machine precision with precision tracking switched off. For high-order polynomials, this is a bad idea. When a precision is specified, the working precision is adjusted so as to ensure that all of the requested digits are correct.

comment on convergence in optimization
Your judgment is required to say whether it is reliable or not. FindMinimum provides you with three different measures of the degree of convergence. From what you know about the problem, and the use to which you intend to put the result, is it good enough, or not? Nobody else can tell you this. If you want more concrete advice from others, I'm afraid you'll have to ask a more concrete question.

comment on convergence in optimization
"Can we still use this solution for when I calculate one of the constraints using printed data, it is outside the defined range?" does not really make sense to me. Could you clarify? Also, why have you used the linearprogramming tag for a nonlinear optimization problem?

comment Game of Life in 3D
Your question has been closed once because the way you've phrased it is not particularly appropriate for the site; StackExchange sites are not discussion forums, so questions are expected to be more specific and directed. I voted to re-open since clearly it is possible to give a good answer to the question, but we would all appreciate it if you could revise your post into something more suitable for a question-and-answer format. The principal difficulty is that people are expected to vote on the answers, and unless specific criteria are given, it is hard to know how to do so.
