comment ReadList can't read from file containing high-precision Reals
Apparently it needs the numbers to be in Fortran format...

comment Finding the best way to visualize rather complicated data
@Peltio I think I agree with you, in principle at least, but it depends on what story the OP is trying to tell. If, say, it's the story of the increasing market share of the "blue teams" at higher levels, this approach (with added trend lines) is good. (The OP didn't provide information as to whether every second nth data element in each row of the list was to be considered as a continuous 'process'.) But if the story is one of increasing divergence at higher levels, I think there might be better ways, eg the chosen method, although that's not perfect visually.

Visually I like this better than the crowded barchart! +1

comment Plotting problem
Your error message is saying (I think) "Coordinate (...) should be a triple of numbers." The points can't be plotted because vN doesn't seem to produce any numbers, just Norm' expressions, which causes that error.

comment Is there a Mathematica barcode reader?
@belisarius I tried to adapt your code to make a "barcode reader", using ImageCapture feeding into your code function via "FrameRate" -> 5, "CaptureAction" -> (capture[#] &). Unfortunately my computer's camera couldn't get the barcode in focus, neither could I hold the item motionless - my arm isn't strong enough apparently. I went down to the local supermarket hoping to access their lasers but they haven't got Mathematica installed at the checkouts so was unable to test the idea any further... :)

@belisarius Yep, that works. In future I'll always bring my white flanks with me... :)

comment CMYK colours changing
Ah, I see what you're doing now - you're displaying the system color picker to sample the RGB screen colour. I couldn't work out how to display the picker from Mathematica's drawing tools... :)

Try CMYKColor[0, .83, 1, 0]? I can't seem to reproduce your image here, strangely...
