comment How can I interrupt Speak?
@Mr.Wizard Is it a V7 issue or a Windows/Mac issue? (I'm running Mac OS X)

comment How to provide your own example data for a custom package?
...and that can be inconvenient when you want to access a canonical or standard example of data associated with your package. When I'm learning a new function from the docs, I often open a new (unsaved) notebook, get some data with ExampleData, and start playing. Is there a standard directory for storing data in a package, where Mma does not need to know the path? (I see $UserBaseDirectory<>"/ApplicationData", perhaps there?)

@SjoerdC.deVries Well, with ExampleData, one does not need to know the location of the data, as in jVincent's answer below. With Import, you need to know the location of the data file...

comment Generating a broken or snipped axis in ListPlot
@Andrew As promised. It's hawkish, and needs Mma v7 or greater. This approach could work quite nicely if (once?) AbsoluteOptions is fixed so that it returns suitable values for Ticks. As it stands, R.M's solution looks more robust.

comment Automatically detecting code that will not run on earlier versions
@LeonidShifrin Voted to close as a duplicate. Do you think my answer is sufficiently different from yours to warrant posting it to the other question?
