comment Function Interpolation with Automatic / Algorithmic Values Mesh
@JxB I had commented with some code to do just that but it took up so much space I deleted it :) I don't know but it might be worthwhile to set WorkingPrecision on Plot before hand (even though the results will need to be coerced via SetPrecision)

comment Function Interpolation with Automatic / Algorithmic Values Mesh
Here are some issues I see. First, Plot will give numbers to machine precision and only machine precision. Second, Plot cannot be used to find values for a function f(x,y,z) assuming this is a plot in 4 dimensions. Finally, any attempt to extract parts from the input form of an object can change from version to version so don't expect it to work if you upgrade. All that being said, I do this myself all the time +1 :)

Have you tried FunctionInterpolation? It takes many of the same options as Interpolation. I find I often have to use them since automation fails for all but simple functions however. It might be helpful to give your function even if it is complicated.

comment Changes in Handling of Real Zeros
@LeonidShifrin Though I completely agree that it is bad practice to overload arithmetic functions like Times the fan boy in me loves the fact that we can. Mathematica is like putty in the hands, leaving us free to experiment with it in ways that just aren't possible in most places.

comment Repeatedly randomly redrawing part of a random sample that matches a certain criterion
@Rojo I was under the impression that the issue is a need to repeatedly apply the procedure in an automated way.

comment Issues with a Counter that is tallying term appearances
I'm confused about what you are wanting and what the file citizenchecker97 contains. Could you describe what you want as a black box, i.e. what goes in and what do you hope to come out?

@SjoerdC.deVries Scary indeed but very powerful and often necessary :)

I would suggest editing your question so that is specifically addresses what you are hoping to accomplish with this data. Maybe responses will give you a sense of how to handle similar issues in the future.
