@ 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.

I have not heard about Borgs in Berlin, but then who was JFK?

Collins collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english/futile confirms the expected pronounciation.

A brilliant work-around. The orthography is deteriorating but the pronounciation is improving.

comment Forming Cone with Tube fails to work in version 9.0.1
Thanks for the comments and the workaround, I came up with another solution, but I have to admitt that 'Disk3D' had eluded me. I will reprot this as an error to Wolfram.
