Nice! :) $\phantom{}$

comment Finding all of the words containing certain letters
This doesn't do what the OP requested in the question. Their output contains words with all of the letters in a, e, i, o, u, y whereas this returns words with any of the letters in that list.

Awesome! Thanks for your patience and for making these edits :)

comment How can I sketch a Plot using direction field?
Please add more details to your question. What were you trying to plot? Is it even defined properly? What does "can't plot" mean? Are you even using Mathematica?

comment Scraping High-Res images from the MoMA and the Van Gogh Museum websites
@martin I suppose you could add something like that to work around it. I haven't read your code in detail and it's hard to follow because of the variable names and deep nesting, but now that you know the issue, the site's stance and what could be done (if it needs to be done), I trust you'll make the necessary (hopefully minor) modifications to the code, mostly for your own peace of mind :)

comment Scraping High-Res images from the MoMA and the Van Gogh Museum websites
@martin What sort of compromise would satisfy you? We try to discourage people asking detailed questions, getting others to spend time on it and answer it, only to then realize that they probably should not have posted it/their teacher might find out that they cheated/it was their company's proprietary data/the question was silly, etc. People have all sorts of reasons, but unless there is a demonstrable case of actual, explicit copyright infringement, we don't remove stuff. And I don't think your question comes even close to actual infringement (enables it, with the right parameters, perhaps).

comment Scraping High-Res images from the MoMA and the Van Gogh Museum websites
Right now the code is just words on a screen. It contains no images that are subject to copyright and the code, I presume, is your own work which is licensed CC by SA 3.0. Legal implications fall on the person executing the code, who would be the person doing the downloading of said images. Belisarius' answer also uses a value of 1 which is allowed, per my reading of the meta post that you asked and is now deleted. Most jurisdictions have exclusions for non-commercial, home use, fair use, etc. so don't think it'd be a problem. I'm not a lawyer, though.

Please do not remove details from your question again. Without the context and code, it is useless to anyone else.

comment Shading between polar graphs
@David Thank you, and wow! That is absolutely bizarre. Although I have used Evaluate in the second call to PolarPlot, I haven't in the definition for regions. Could you please check if adding Evaluate to that line fixes things in 10.2? And if so, please feel free to edit my answer to add the missing Evaluate :)

comment Shading between polar graphs
@David Could you show me a screenshot of what you get? I have 10.1 and it produces the same figure above.

comment Formatting a complex ArrayPlot
Your code is complicated. Try this: ArrayPlot[{{0, 1, 0}, {1, 1, 1}, {0, 1, 0}}]. Now just hand-code the 3x3 matrices for each of these, map ArrayPlot and wrap in Row and you should be pretty close to done (except for some minor tweaks). This will be far easier and faster than trying to come up with a clever algorithmic/programmatic way to generate those images.

comment Awkward DatabaseLink JDBC Error
Also, are you trying to insert TIMESTAMP into a DATE field? Is this error in the middle of a transaction? If so, does rolling back fix the issue (at least the "it apparently looses the capability of handling dates correctly." part)

comment Awkward DatabaseLink JDBC Error
You might not be able to share the code, but could you please update your post with 1) OS version 2) Mathematica version and 3) Database backend (PostgreSQL/MySQL/SQLite/etc.) 4) Some context around what your app is doing when this error occurs (is it a read/write/update?). Some contextual code snippets would be helpful

comment Fastest way to sum the upper triangle
Another way Total@Flatten@UpperTriangularize[a, 1] (or Total[..., 2] w/o Flatten). Probably not as fast as the Total - Tr route, but easier to read perhaps.

comment Mathematica 10 doesn't support path containing Chinese characters
@MichaelE2 That is weird. I got the same error as well. I think it's some change that was introduced after this post was written/edited. Digging in meta SE, I found this and the SE developer's response was that it's related to some OS X unicode kiss of death issue. Not sure if they extended that to certain chinese characters as well. Probably worth asking on our meta so that we can forward it to the dev.

comment Returning ancillary computation results from a function
@unlikely I hadn't seen this question and your update earlier, but I had asked a similar before (re: multiple outputs matlab style) mathematica.stackexchange.com/q/314/5 I would not recommend it though... the question was purely for curiosity sake :)

comment Export Graphics using Move in Optica
I've created a new tag optics and tagged this question with it. You should be able to retag other questions that are optics related :)

comment Any solution to transfer data between Python and Mathematica
You can import MAT files in Mathematica. Have you tried that?
