comment Can Enterprise Edition really encrypt code for distribution via CDF?
@AndreasLauschke -- Great news. Many thanks for your contributions to this discussion. Maybe Wolfram would have gotten their on its own, but I think questions, discussions, and criticism like this has help speed the process.

comment Scale plot display area (within the frame)
@Mr.Wizard - As I revisit this, I think I can restate the question better and more succinctly. "Does a way exist to apply something like AspectRatio within a plot's Frame, which would in turn override AspectRatio." Essentially, I want control of the frame itself (either statically or programmatically). If you think this makes sense and seems worthwhile I can update the question. Let me know.

comment Multidimensional Numeric Integration
I confess to not studying the integral closely, but something about it has me wondering if you could cast the problem geometrically then lay it out with something like a Cholesky Decomposition? Just a thought.

comment How to accelerate my code?
Can you supply us with either your list for e or a function to generate the list so we can replicate your results and use them as a baseline?

comment Turning a list of notes and timings into useful sheet music
Music types have kind of figured this out already Music theory. Staffs, clefs, ledger lines, notes, time indications. It gives one a remarkably accessible language, grammar, and syntax for doing this sort of thing. Interesting that no one has mentioned it.

comment How can I change the dashed line going down to the x-axis?
Please provide the simplest code the demonstrates your issue. Also, you don't have a "dashed line going down to the axis". What do you really want to do?

+1 from me. I haven't had the opportunity to study the new DateObject paradigm. Great introduction.

comment Inconsistent image sizing with Grid and Row?
@Mr.Wizard -- I think I participate on this site every bit as much for the generosity of spirit as I do for the information (and I hugely value the information).

comment Not seeing plot of solution returned by NDSolve
The comments to the question you referenced explain a number of funny behavior I've witnessed in the past. Thanks for the explanation and the warning.

comment Not seeing plot of solution returned by NDSolve
Thinking more about this. Does this just create additional variables within the Manipulate to which one can assign any value? Couldn't one achieve the same thing by wrapping the Manipulate in Module? (I do like this shortcut of yours)

{s0, None}, {γ, None}, {sol, None}, (* invisible controls *) Invisible Controls! This looks interesting, but I can't quite see what it does. Can you elaborate/explain?

comment Inconsistent image sizing with Grid and Row?
I've decided to select your answer as the best one (sorry @Mr.Wizard), because while the others provide workarounds, this one actually provides some insight and explanation of why the problem occurs. Thanks again.

comment Inconsistent image sizing with Grid and Row?
Thanks for this. This gives one a much better idea about what Mathematica might actually do under the hood. It does seem odd, that the default values of ImageSizeMultiplier don't equal {1.,1.}.

comment Can Mathematica be used for developing “normal” stand-alone softwares?
Does your view of "normal" include "shrink-wrapped" or desktop software?

comment Can Mathematica be used for developing “normal” stand-alone softwares?
@Nasser - That could make a difference and do much ti close the gap between Mma and other development approaches. Thanks for the info.

comment Can Mathematica be used for developing “normal” stand-alone softwares?
Difficult to think about this question without seriously assessing the current intellectual property protections available & not available with Mma. They include: compiling, encoding, and CDFs (lot's of discussion of all of this on this site), but I have yet to see a sound approach from Wolfram to protect IP in a way comparable to other languages. No language can provide absolute IP protection. With sufficient time, money, knowledge, and tools one can probably reverse engineer any code. That said, even though I use Mma exclusively, Java, C++, and the like provide much more protection.

@MikeHoneychurch - We should have a badge for sportsmanship! Many thanks.

comment Inconsistent image sizing with Grid and Row?
I've received (as of this comment) 2 useful but different workarounds. Mr.Wizard's the simplest and most direct and Mike's a bit more versatile in that it gives one additional control for sizing. How to chose?

comment Is there a build-in function converting a quantity to one with mixed units (such as feet and inches)?
@Olekasndr -- I confirmed your result, which I don't know whether to take as delightful or terrifying. Did W|A just make a "funny" or did it just achieve sentience?
