comment Why does Mathematica use a different $PATH than terminal?
It still doesn't match up fully. After sourcing .bash_profile, most paths in /opt, /usr, /bin and /sbin are present, but the paths in /opt/X11, /Library/TeX and /usr/texbin are still missing. So probably OS X has another source as well for its $PATH variable, but I guess it's no longer a question for Mathematica.SE anymore then..

@dionys No problem, thanks for your comment :-).

comment Why does Mathematica use a different $PATH than terminal?
@dionys When I run a bash command inside Mma using Run[] or RunProcess[], it will only recognise commands inside the system wide $PATH variable (Unix notation). What I don't understand is why it doesn't use my system path, but seems to use some default unix path which is only part of it.

comment Why does Mathematica use a different $PATH than terminal?
@dionys I've seen that one as well, but that thread does not deal with system environment variables (typo in the topic) but Mma environment variables. See the difference between $Path and 'PATH'in Mma. I'm really asking about the system environment variable here, which you access with Environment["PATH"].

comment Pop-up documentation for “The new function of the day”
@JM Ah, now it works. Yesterday running the code did not result in a connection to the Wolfram Knowledge Server, but now it did. Probably my home internet is too slow (5Mbps) and unreliable - I am at work now. Sorry, my bad.

no but it is not much of a Dataset as it has only two elements and zero levels. It seems that EntityValue didn't do anything (I don't know what it is supposed to do, but running ` EntityValue['WolframLanguageSymbol', {'Name', 'VersionIntroduced'}]]` just outputs itself again).

comment Pop-up documentation for “The new function of the day”
When I run this code the button is created, but when I press it I get the errors RandomChoice::lrwl: The items for choice EntityValue[][All,Name] should be a list or a rule weights -> choices. >> and String expected at position 2 in \ paclet:ref/<>RandomChoice[EntityValue[][All,Name]]. >>. I'm on MMa 10.2 on OS X; removing the 10.3 from $versions didn't help either.

comment Defining Piecewise Functions in Modules
Wait, how can it be that you define env[x_]as a function of x, but are using env without parameters on the next line?

Probably there are more elegant ways to get the requested, but then we'd need to now your definition for getpsipieces, and anyway, now it should work as is without too much modification.
