About me, huh? Well, I don't like creating a ton of different profiles because I never remember to update them all. So I'll defer this section to http://www.timparenti.com/me/.

comment Labeling precisely-positioned “tree” nodes
Great! An elegant solution! I take it the sloped and inner sep options in the individual \draw commands can be applied generally to every label?

comment Automaton backedge arrows running into other states
@hpesoj626 I guess we disagree on the aesthetics, then. The new in and out values I've chosen work well for my purposes.

comment Suppress Fancy header and footer on first page only.
I found this trying to do the opposite, including the fancy header on the first page. I had no idea that \maketitle triggered a \thispagestyle{plain}! Good to know!

comment Misaligned month label in TikZ calendar
I suppose a "dirty fix" is better than no fix at all. Still leaves me with a bad taste, but hey... at least it works. I'm going to hold off on accepting this for another day or so in case anyone else can offer a more insightful solution. (But congrats on 100k!)

comment Misaligned month label in TikZ calendar
After some experimentation, it seems the value which "correctly" centers the label in this example is 7.9, but I still don't have any additional insight into what that value actually represents and why 7 doesn't work as it should.

comment Misaligned month label in TikZ calendar
Looks pretty good, but why 7.8, specifically? Is tikz@lib@cal@width effectively a multiple of day xshift? If so, why doesn't 7 work in this example? I'm trying to understand the root cause of the problem...

comment Is there a “contradiction” symbol in some font, somewhere?
I used this approach, except with a thinner line width of .1ex, and it looks great! It's simple, concise, and make great use of TikZ, which I am likely already using in any given document. Thanks for the tip!
