## HWÆT WORLD: how should I generate and display graphs of prime numbers?

I haven't programmed much for years. Now I want to play around with different ways of visualising the Ulam Spiral and I'd like suggestions for the right tools to use. I want to generate or load arrays of (say) 100,000 numbers, depict them on a 2- or 3-d graph, and move the lighting and/or viewing angle to give an impression of depth. Details inside.

## Vaguely remembered visual MLB game previews

I remember seeing some visual previews of MLB games (or maybe playoff series) somewhere about 4-5 years ago. The previews had offensive and defensive stats (probably advanced stats) for each team, graphed in opposition to each other. I have vague memories of what it looked like, described inside. Could you help me find them?

## OCR for charts and graphs

This happens all the time in my work: I see a chart of valuable data, I want the exact numeric values or close approximations but the data is (purposely) unlabeled, or perhaps only key data is labeled. Is there a way to automatically estimate the values?

## Creating simple bar graph in Excel 2007

Hey guys, what I'm trying to do is very simple I just never really use Excel. I have two unrelated fields, categories, or columns, that I'd like to depict in a bar graph showing the amount of records that have been completed out of the total. The data are values, in my case "Yes", not numbers. I used the countif() formula to count every cell that has "yes". But I'm not really sure what I have to do next. Do I need to create another row showing what percentage this number is from the total amount of records, 136/633? And then create a bar graph from just that cell? When I just highlight all the cells for both columns and click bar graph it doesn't even fully show me a graph so I'm obviously not doing it right. Ideally, I'd like the y-axis to just show 0-100% and the total number of records(633) with marks maybe at 25% intervals. The x-axis to have my two column names and then the bars showing the percentage of records that have "yes" for these columns out of the total with a count included also. If anyone could help me out that would be great. Thanks a ton in advance.
