comment LaTeX 'Missing $' Cannot find the reason
Please post a minimal working example illustrating the error. In particular, include the necessary packages from your preamble for reproducing the error. In particular, how are you defining \vect{} or which packages are you loading that provides that command?

comment Typing the semidirect product symbol
The ams packages are distributed in several different families. Take a look at ftp.ams.org/pub/tex/doc/amsmath/amsldoc.pdf and ftp.ams.org/pub/tex/doc/amsfonts/amsfndoc.pdf to see what the amsmath and amssymb packages contain.

@wasteofspace: somewhat related, by modern standards CM-Super really isn't that huge anymore.

comment How to smoothen an Asymptote plot
And in the interest of teaching a man to fish and all that: here's the online documentation. By specifying the function T you can even make the sampling not evenly spaced, if you know a priori where you need higher "resolution".

comment Glossary and list of acronyms in the same page
Please provide a minimum working example showing what you are doing now, and a description of how that differs from what you want to do. In particular, how are you building the glossary and acronym lists?

comment Is there an (easy) way to create or personalize .bst files?
Word to the wise: think very carefully when you answer those questions. It is not fun to have to start over again if you make a mistake. (A friend asked me to put together a .bst file that her thesis advisor would approve. After the fifth time she said, "oh wait, maybe option X would be better", I was really tempted to reconsider our friendship.)

comment Automatic new directory for new files
I am not that familiar with Windows, but if MikTeX (or whatever LaTeX distribution you use) supports command line commands, and if your IDE allows you to change the command used to compile the document, then in principle you can write a batch file to do so. But if you want a more tailor-made solution, please edit your original post to include (1) Operating system [I assume Windows] (2) LaTeX distribution (3) Any software you use in the workflow to create your document: what editor you use, how you compile the TeX file into DVI/PDF etc.

comment End of theorem marker placement
@barbara: wow. I have to admit (rather shamefully) that "because ntheorem didn't exists" never crossed my mind as a possible answer; but now that you pointed it out, it seems so very natural.
