comment What is the right way to construct DynamicModule
@kuba it is a long time since I have read this Q&A. As a general rule anything that is SetDelayed needs to be in Initialization. For the rest it is a matter of circumstances.

Vitaly's answer in the link your provided gives you embedded private styles.

comment Opening notebooks from Workbench on Mac OS X?
Sorry if this is stating the obvious but if you are new to Mac the Mathematica application in your Applications folder is not the executable. Therefore if your path leads to it that would be why it fails. You need to right click on Mathematica and Show Package contents and find the executable from within those contents.

comment Need help with C Code Generator
So you want to generate C from Mathematica and then use that C code to deploy in some sort of web app? To digress have you thought have just using webMathematica so that the Mathematica code gets deployed directly?

comment Can Apple's Numbers spreadsheet link to a Mathematica function?
I don't have Numbers but if you can use AppleScript to do things in Numbers then you can run the script from Mathematica

comment Making Monte Carlo simulation with ParallelTable
I concur with @Szabolcs. When doing MC you should always try to think (re-think) of your problem in a way that allows you to generate all random numbers in one list and then think about how to test or scan the list. Performance improvements can be 1, 2 or 2+ orders of magnitude.

Not that I know of but have not investigated this before.

comment Why can I edit only one character of the output of a Dynamic expression?
my wording was inexact. What I meant was if you want to enter values in sections of the output cell and have the variable dynamic you need to use InputField

comment Why can I edit only one character of the output of a Dynamic expression?
You are attempting to edit an output cell. As soon as you enter 4 the cell becomes an input cell. If you want to enter values into sections of an output cell you need to use InputField

comment Problem with CurrentValue[“MouseOver”] when graphics are wrapped with Deploy
Maybe I didn't test this correctly earlier on. With OS X 10.9.1 I get the error with both V8 and V9.

@rasher couldn't agree more.

comment Fast way to get positions of “boxed” array elements?
@rasher one of the disappointing things about both ListConvolve and ListCorrelate is they are effectively unusable when you use custom functions.

comment Shooting method for solving 3rd Oder ODE with RK method
Have there been some recent homework assignments on the shooting method? Seems to have been a few related questions recently. Is this a homework problem?

comment Parallel optimization of Markov Chain Monte Carlo
@Szabolcs I was using ParallelMap and ParallelTable so I guess that is the context in which the DistributeDefinitions statement was made to me.

comment Parallel optimization of Markov Chain Monte Carlo
I encountered similar behaviour in late 2010 using version 7. I asked WRI tech support about this (and other things). Just reading the emails it appears that the reason for this slowness was not answered directly -- and I know I eventually abandoned parallization due to a work time constraint and stuck with single kernel. I also note that WRI advised at the time that "Also, please note that in version 8, we don't need to perform distribute definitions"

comment Controlling ListPlot Line Colors
Is there some reason why this doesn;t suffice? ListPlot[Table[i*Range[0, 10], {i, 1, 5, 0.5}], Frame -> True, Joined -> True, PlotRange -> All, PlotStyle -> ColorData[3, "ColorList"]]

Have you attempted something already with e.g. FindFit? Can you show your code?
