comment Limited Opacity Levels in Image3D?
Yeah I tried a few others, all show similar behavior. A constant opacity also doesn't work.

comment Limited Opacity Levels in Image3D?
I know that some volume renderers do only 256 discrete levels (IDL being an ancient example). I was hoping it was a global rendering option that perhaps was causing this.

@belisarius I'm using V9 on OS X. Even if the banding is absent, the discrete color levels are undesirable, which I still see in your output.

comment Mathematically Eliminated in Baseball
It's a "fun" question, but it could easily be generalized to all sports with playoffs if you're worried about it being too narrow. Baseball just seems like the most interesting case, given the number of games played.

Are the other shapes also fixed in 10.0.1?

comment Kernel crashes when plotting $z=\sqrt{(x^2 + y^2)^0}$
@george2079 I'd argue that the kernel should never crash, and instances in which it does so in a reproducible way should be considered bugs. If this is really a "don't do that" situation, it should print an error message rather than taking down the entire kernel.

comment How many triangles are there?
Given that lines are drawn already on the original puzzle, I would think it's asking only to count the triangles that can be formed with the existent lines.

comment How can I create a Distribution from its probability density function?
This is new to the documentation in Mathematica 10 (and the online documentation), it is not mentioned clearly in the Mathematica 9 documentation. There, it appears under "properties & relations" and simply says "The integral of the PDF over the distribution domain needs to be unity."

+1 for the warning, I have experienced that as well. It's something that should at least be noted in the documentation.

comment After editing a file Mathematica 10 interprets […]^2 as […(])^2
I just want to add that entering quotes before a block of code when I use superscripts very frequently causes the formatting to screw up and for parentheses to no longer be recognized as matching. Often times, deleting the quotes and retyping them causes Mathematica to retry the formatting and that can often times fix the issue. It is very frustrating though and has existed since at least Mathematica 7.

comment RandomVariate from 2-dimensional probability distribution
Is sampling from a multi-dimensional distribution now possible in Mathematica 10?
