comment Scale plot display area (within the frame)
@Kuba - Gosh, long time, but yes I would like an answer. Reading through the question again, I wonder if I can do something with LogPlot, but I've yet to see think through to a solution.

comment Partitioning time series data in sublists by their duration
Can you supply a simple example of the hierarchy of your data structure? It would help sleepy guys like me think more easily about the problem. Even better, if you can give us a simple function to generate some random data we could use to help design a solution. That said, my first instinct on this goes to creating a dispatch table. See Dispatch[] and @whuber's answer link. A dispatch table just might give you the versatility you need to do what you want to do.

comment Assign the contents of a “Copy” operation programmatically to a variable?
While I can't use this solution on OS X, +1 for helping that other part of the universe.

comment Assign the contents of a “Copy” operation programmatically to a variable?
@Mr.Wizard - Duplicate? Kind of, but the answers, excepting yours, don't provide solutions for what I'd like to see. While yours does (I just implemented it;-), having done so makes me think we can make it better by: naming the palette & supplying steps to install it using Palette -> Install palette...?. Also, even your answer has intermediate steps. A year since the original, might not others have come across simpler or more direct ways to do this? I think a new solution might interest the community, but maybe we could spark new contributions to the original. Thoughts?

comment Assigning weights to edges of a hypercube based on the Gray code labels for vertices being connected
+1 from me. Seeing a solution like this for such an interesting problem, just made my day brighter. Thanks.

comment MySQL or PostgreSQL? Using Mathematica only I need to choose one
@bobthechemist -- I don't think we can regard this as a subjective question. MySQL and PostgeSQL have different capabilities and performance because of their inherent designs. PostgreSQL has more institutional capable performance. Head to head PostgreSQL provides a viable alternative to top tier database base platforms (including the likes of Oracle and SAP) in their core markets. MySQL doesn't really do that. All of this said, the OP has a specific need. Given that one can download both these platforms for free, why not simply test them?

comment MAP a business cycles model
I never had occasion to use RecurrenceTable, so its syntax using equations seemed unfamiliar. A little explanation of how RecurrenceTable and any similarly structured functions work could help we uninitiated, better understand your solution. Its a very cool solution you've crafted. Knowing a bit of your thought on why you chose to attack the problem as you did, rather than some other way (Mathematica always seems to have other ways), would make for some interesting insights. Just curious ;-)

Could you provide a bit of explanation of your code. It has a lot of interesting things in it. +1
