comment Set music in LaTeX with ABC or LilyPond?
If arara isn't your thing and you're worried about compilation workflow, you could always try throwing yet another tool (Make) at them and do something like this: gist.github.com/SamWhited/7902221

comment Inserting slashed zero in non-OpenType supporting LaTeX
That's just a normal zero (not an opentype +zero); in a lot of monospace fonts they just add the slash since that's probably what you want for things like coding and maths anyways.

Good to know; thanks. I'll check that article out as soon as it becomes available to the general public.

comment Inserting slashed zero in non-OpenType supporting LaTeX
Are all zero's slashed in that font, or do you have to do something to enable this? I'd rather use a font like this where appropriate than hack something together like the other answers (though it's good to have both solutions available).

comment Protect scanned signature in a PDF
There are DRM technologies available for PDF's, but (like all DRM) they're not going to make things difficult for the person who wants to steal your signature (as the above answer points out); they're only going to hurt the legitimate users of your PDF who can no longer open it in unsupported PDF readers (eg. Probably anything not Adobe Acrobat)

comment Installing TeX Live 2013 on Linux
Just create them. Also, they're hidden files (hence the startind dot), so they're probably there and you just can't see them.

comment How do I type the infinity symbol in MacTex?
@Mico Fair point; l2tabu doesn't mention \(\) either, though I had thought it talked about line spacing a bit. Oh well, ignore my comment (although I'd still go with the LaTeX way unless you need to put it in a moving argument for some reason).

comment How do I type the infinity symbol in MacTex?
Just a general tip: It's safter to use \(f_1\) and \[f_1\] than $f_1$ and $$f_1$$. For more information, see this question: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/503/why-is-preferable-to or read about it in l2tabu.

Thanks, I'm not familiar with \looseness; I'll try to find an explanation online somewhere.

If you have the text this is a line; this is a long line (and a really small page), and you have a single line left at the bottom of the page two things could happen: You break at the semi-colon and this is a long line fits on the next line, so everything is good (no page break) or this is a long line is so long that it takes up the whole line and still wraps again, causing a page break (where it didn't before because it fit on one full line and part of another).
