comment Defining and evaluating new continuous distributions based on Mathematica's distributions
Thank you very much that was exactly what I was looking for. The collection guide/DerivedDistributions summarizes a number of other functions I was looking for.

comment Why is parallel slower?
You should try a very large data set. Every now and then the overhead in setting up a parallelization outweighs the effect of parallel processing. Using multiple CPUs is a relatively simple exercise. The situation will become worse when you use GPUs. The data transfer CPU->GPU->CPU is the critical part.

@ J.M. PlotRange is definitely dcumented only as an option. How did you figure this one out? It is also not a general means for retrieving Options values. Very nice.

comment Making Axes logarithmic in 3d plots
Maybe still more for future versions of Mathematica but the option ScalingFunctions -> {"Log", "Reverse"} has been introduced for Gauges, Histograms and BarCharts in version 9. Unluckily, it fails in number of instances. I reported this as an error a while ago. Since the implementation is very general, I cannot see why it should not also become available for all other Plot-related functions.

Generalized the question. Added one solution.
