I am a management consultant with a background in OR and a strong focus on modeling management problems following Forrester's System Dynamics methodology. After years of abstinence from any programming in a spreadsheet dominated industry I discovered Mathematica a couple of years ago and the fascination has not stopped since then.

It seems THE tool - and no, it is not simply a hammer - for the kind of work that needs to be done in my field and I am often suprised anew how far the possibilities go.

comment pattern matching and applying a function, not working as expected
If you use RuleDelayed, e.g. G[x, y] /. a_[b__] :> Total[a @@@ Permutations[List[b]]] it will work. Use yourcode//Trace to see what is happening.

comment What is the difference between Array and Table?
While everything is an expression, not everything is a function. Array constructs matrices from functions, Table from expressions. One might note, that using pure functions within Array significantly speeds it up and there is not that much difference to Table I find. In theory both should be open for parallelization, shouldn't they?

Same on 10.0.2 and Win 7 (64 Bit)

comment Bug in ListVectorPlot?
But did you try to do it repeatedly? v10.0.2 crashes the second or third time it is called on Wind 7 (64 Bit).

It works at first on v10.0.2 on Windows 7 (64 Bit) but crashes if called again.

comment Why are TimeSeries objects reported with head “TemporalData”?
Seems that nobody has come up with another answer or cares, thus I accept my own thoughts reflecting upon the answer I have gotten from WRI.

The problem still persists in Version 10.0.2 - the suggestion bar needs to stay deactivated.

comment More Ticks::ticks errors in AbsoluteOptions in v10
Well, how to be sure, but I had booted Windows freshly, closed all programs, checked MD5 and then the old Version 10.0.1 was removed before the new one got installed. Strange...

Yes, with a fresh notebook and that exact code I do get (among other errors): Axes::axes: "{{True,False},{True,False}} is not a valid axis specification. "

comment More Ticks::ticks errors in AbsoluteOptions in v10
Sorry, I do not get your Point: PlotStyle -> "Web" does not put up a frame yet still (!) shows Axes::axes and Ticks::ticks bug at the same time. So what has been "fixed" ?

I believe that Mr.Wizard might reformulate his question and then that should be the more general instance maybe?

True, but the error is also shown for the Option Axes. Isn't that something different?

The error for Plot has not really been fixed. As adding PlotTheme->"Scientific" quickly shows. So maybe these problems should be treated as one single problem?

It is not really fixed, try Plot[ Sin[x], {x,0,4}, PlotTheme -> "Scientific"]//AbsoluteOptions and see here

comment BarLegend using Function that uses Blend
Interesting, both answers have good points but there seems to be indeed a bug as BarLegend[{colorf, {0, 30}},n] will give false answers for small n as shown in @Karsten 7's answer. BTW why is the Round[#, 0.001] needed?

comment BarLegend using Function that uses Blend
colorf = Blend[{Red, Blue}, #] &; BarLegend[{colorf, {0, 30}}] works fine in V. 10.0.2. -- maybe it is the definition of colorf and using colof[#] &?

Sometimes it simply is learning by doing - especially when there is an interpreter. :)

Could you enter your problem using some formatting so it can be copied for testing?
