comment Union of Paths in MetaPost
@Thruston Nope. The pen slants at the end points of the ascender are not the same (30 degrees at the top and 45 degrees at the bottom). Had they been the same, I could have used a special pen shape. I don't have the metafont book, but I'm using my own version of a penpos command that defines the pen slant at a given position. The lack of built-in MetaPost support for path unions is disappointing as it's something that is almost always needed.

comment Abbreviate only middle names in biblatex
Why do you want to abbreviate parts of names in a bibliography? The names in the bibliography should be identical to the names in the original source.

comment Showcase TeX Typography for TUG's Calendar
@Cfr Initially I there were hardly any contributions, which is why I relaxed my requirements. Calligraphy and good typography would be a nice theme wouldn't it? I'm not sure if it'll be feasible, but the contributions look promising.

comment Showcase TeX Typography for TUG's Calendar
Thanks for the effort. Such applications are exactly what I'm looking for. I agree with @Manuel. If it was just the words that were spaced in different entries, it probably wouldn't have mattered much. What I don't like is the different amounts of space before the parenthesized letters.

comment LaTeX Table Generator
You can also automate the table creation. If you have a list of CSV values, you could use the csvtools package. You can also use the pgfplotstable package.

comment Latex code for power electronic inverters
Looks nice but I'd shorten the creation of the t* nodes: \foreach \num in {1,2,3,4} { \node[anchor=south] at (t\num.G) {$T_\num$}; \draw (t\num.S)++(0,0.5) -- ++(0.3,0) to[sD*] ($(t\num.D)+(0.3,-0.5)$) -- ++(-0.3,0); }.

comment Split Table of Contents but not Summary
Why do you want to split the TOC? If it's because the document for some natural major document divisions and if you're using book or equivalent, howsabout introducing `\part's?
