comment How can I list all the 'countries 4000 km far from current location'?
Looks like version 10 has this built in :-)

The reversal of lat, long is only for displaying the graphics. Perhaps it is best to say don't reverse any coordinates in loc or bounds, and use Polygon[Reverse /@ bounds] in the graphics.

Very nice, but to get the correct shape you need to keep loc as {lat, long} and do the Reverse after GeoDestination, i.e. bounds = Table[Reverse@GeoDestination[loc,...

comment State “i” goes to state “j”
@MarianadaCosta, the symbol | is a shorthand for Alternatives, so as Paxinum said, "1"|"4" is a pattern which matches either "1" or "4". You may have no use for this, but I thought it worth mentioning.

Thread2[{{1, 2, 3, 4, 5}, {6, 7, 8}}] gives a Thread::tdlen error.

comment Can I change Legend text in a stylesheet?
@Mr.Wizard, I had a look but couldn't see where the explicit font setting was applied. I think it must be somewhere in MakeBoxes.

comment Pattern evaluation in nested function call
@Ramiro, yes they're global symbols. Sometimes it's very useful to use Module symbols like that, it's not necessarily a bad thing. You just have to wary of leaking memory if the Module is evaluated many times because it will create a new unique symbol each time. In this case it was more just that there was no need to use symbolic parameters in the Function when the numerical values were already known.

comment Can I change Legend text in a stylesheet?
For me the TemplateBox tag is a string, so I tried creating a named style for LineLegend. It turns out the legend will pick up the font size, weight and colour from the stylesheet but not the font family. Looking at the boxes, the Times font is explicitly specified in a StyleBox which overrides the style from the stylesheet :-( So I think you are right, I will have to set the LabelStyle option in the kernel.

comment Making a Mathematica package manager?
It might be better to follow halirutan's lead and make this a self-answered question (Q. Can we create a package manager? A. Yes we can...) with an associated chat room for discussions. As currently posed it's not clear what would constitute a "correct" answer and it risks being closed as primarily opinion based.

You could use something like data = Transpose@{Re@#, Im@#} &@ Accumulate[Range[3000]^-(0.5 + 10000 I)]; to calculate the data

comment Generating $n$ random samples every time
+1 This must be the most efficient approach I think. You could write the output more succinctly as Differences@Join[{0}, slices, {n}]

comment Generating $n$ random samples every time
So you are trying to create a list of n random integers such that Total[list]==100 and Min[list]==1 ?
