Ok, an obligatory note: opinions expressed here are mine and not those of my employer.

comment How to modify function argument?
@rm-rf Thanks for the blog ref. Interesting, although the author was concerned with a different thing. The post was giving some good data analysis, but a bit shallow on the conceptual side. It was more like what I'd expect from a data scientist rather than a mathematician. In any case, Physics rules.

comment Is there a concise form of Which or similar conditional?
Big +1. Not enough love for this answer, folks! The possibility to transparently incorporate error-handling is very valuable. I use similar constructs a lot too.

@Mr.Wizard I don't think that one is quite a dupe (and I am saying it not because I also got an accepted answer there). If that one would have been asked after this one, then indeed, my answer here covers that case as well, albeit more schematically. Given things as they are, I would just include a link to that question / answer in my answer here, and perhaps also vice versa (more or less what rm -rf suggested). Thanks also for the other links - I wasn't aware of all of them. I'll have a second look and perhaps include at least some into my answer.

@rm-rf B.t.w., thinking about it, the reason that it may be easier to get a higher average vote count with fewer posts seems to be that this is also not an ideal metric. A yet better metric would likely be the power of the power law of the distribution of vote counts for a single person, but my guess is that the power law becomes really applicable only for a large enough number of answered questions, so that there are long enough tails (assuming that the power law holds indeed, but I have a hunch that this is generally true). A good question for M.SE?

@OleksandrR. I think so! And yet another one of a similar kind. I'll probably later add these links to my answer.

@rm-rf I wonder how we fare on SO regarding this query, at least those of us who were on SO for a fair amount of time.

@rm-rf I am sure it won't take you long to get there once you get some time on your hands. Also, sometimes one is just lucky to answer some question that gets a lot of votes, so this may actually require less time/effort than you think now.

@rm-rf Looking at the list of people in that table, don't you think that this is a good criteria? I am pleased to be there in such a company.

@rm-rf B.t.w., I was just notified that I also joined the Epic club, inhabited until now by Mr.Wizard and Szabolcs. Will be waiting for you there :-)

@rm-rf Right... gone are the good old days. But also I left my rep ambitions on SO. If there is any such interest I still (may be) keep it is more in the high average vote count and high ratio of silver to bronze badges, rather than their absolute numbers :).

@rm-rf Thanks, buddy! I thought you and Mr.Wizard would be too lonely there without me :)
