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 Collectively aligning multiple align environments
@dustin Except that it doesn't work as I would like... while I can see the utility of tabbing in other contexts, there's a bit too much manual adjustment required for this solution to be considered "simple", I think.

comment Collectively aligning multiple align environments
No need to delete the comments; better to preserve the history. But adding \` in front seems only to right-align the right-hand-side against the margin of the page, which is worse.

comment Collectively aligning multiple align environments
Breaking the equations into multiple equations to tabularize them like this seems like a bit of an abuse of the tabbing environment, something one Should Not Do. Since I'm curious, though, is there a way to right-align a tab stop within tabbing to achieve proper alignment of the left-hand-side?

@Werner Thanks. Using \intertext{} for explanatory text seems close to what I'm looking for, but what if I need a paragraph break somewhere in there?

comment Redefining \and spacing in \author
Your answer caused a previous answer of yours to appear in the "Related" section for this question, so I've submitted an edit to this answer based on that, further clarifying how to redefine \and.

comment Comprehensive list of TikZ style options?
This is great! I agree, it would also be helpful to have some idea of what values these keys can take, since a large part of my particular trouble was determining that font= was expecting something like \bfseries and not, say, \textbf. Since it seems many specifications are specific to various packages or engines (e.g., valid color specifications depend on the color engine used), perhaps even just "where to find more" would be good enough for some.

comment Comprehensive list of TikZ style options?
@Qrrbrbirlbel The summary of Ti<i>k</i>Z commands does indeed look useful, but in a way, is the opposite of what I'm looking for. I'm interested in a comprehensive list of options. For example, when Andrew Stacey's CW answer says draw[=<colour specification>], what counts as <colour specification>?

comment Comprehensive list of TikZ style options?
Doh! I had it inside of a lemma on my end of things (which doesn't yet have any text, so I didn't notice it was italicizing everything). Edited the question and output accordingly. Though the specific problem is solved, the underlying question still remains.

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!
