comment How does one set a logarithmic scale in a ContourPlot?
I think that there are actually a lot of other limitations... It's a pity the scaling functions are still not available to this type of plot... For instance, as long as we choose a simple option like ContourLabels, everything becomes more messy...

Please don't forget to point this shortcoming to WRI support .

comment Fitting Stradivari's scroll
Very nice! Was the kernel crashing a typical out of memory case, or a bug related issue (or an uncaught system limitation related issue, etc)? If the latter, please don't forget to submit it to WRI.

I would give you +10, if you were able to have the interaction directly in your stackexchange answer :-)

comment Importing a large Excel file
+1 Should the fact that increasing the heap-space (by options to ReinstallJavaand friends) doesn't work be considered a bug? Should it be reported?

comment How to mesh a region using adaptive cubic elements
This is essentially how a cartesian mesher works, isn't it? And if the OP accepted non cuboid shapes, we would then proceed to identifying to which pattern the intercepted cells belong to (by the analysis of their vertices position: inside or outside), and then substitute these cuboids by their corresponding non-hexahedral elements, fitted to best match the boundary. I wonder what are WRI plans for a (more) complete meshing framework? I would love to have a framework where I could then define a prismatic boundary-layer, etc.

comment How to make a flowchart?
I would love to have graph gui functionality... And with the addition of all the mesh capabilities, I think that we are currently missing both 2d and 3d input on a Graphics space...

comment How do I identify the source of a “Tag times protected” error?
This is a perfect example of what we could get from code helping functions. For some time now that WRI talks about the eventual inclusion of code improvement suggestion tools. A typical example given is the suggestion of WL functions that could do exactly what the user is programming with a more complex code. But even simpler things can be included, like the small code of Mr. Wizard, but also, for instance, a warning check of "all" the things listed on our common pitfalls post. Is there a frontend framework missing for this purpose? I would even be willing to participate/$ on a crowdfunding...

comment What are the time and space complexities of Classify/Predict?
It seems that the plot images you added are cropped. We can see the title of the NaiveBayes, but there's no plot underneath (by the way: +1).

comment Partial Differential Equation in Parallel
one thing that can be addded is the fact that FE spreads over all cores available on a single machine. I can agree that, because of this single machine restriction, some applications are beyond reanosability (I myself frequently require 300 cores to remain within acceptable times). But even if NDSolve could spread over 300 cores, I don't think that the current practical use we can make of it, really requires more than, lets say, 24 cores. If it does, most likely, it is not the best tool for the job, because of other aspects besides the cores limitation... (but I may be wrong...)

comment Strange behaviour of NotElement in Reduce
@gwr unintuitive is a soft way of saying it... The documentation doesn't exactly say "restricts all variables and parameters... [except those that are obvious to be reduced before being considered by Reduce]. :)

comment What would you ask Mathematica to do on a big system?
Roman Maeder gave a talk on the last WTC, where he talked of some experiments WRI did on a super computer (youtube.com/watch?v=37XGwvZ8OtI). Although I think their config was an order of magnitude "above" yours, it might be interesting if you get in contact with him...
