comment Draw rounded cube
Did it wait to let it finish or crash? (And what is the command you issued? try modifying the last parameter of contour3 to 20 to reduce quality and see if it runs.) It takes 22.9 seconds on a quad core Xeon @ 3.1 Ghz, I wouldn't rule out it taking more than 10 minutes on a single core 1.6G box....

comment Draw rounded cube
"it is not working on my machine" what is the error? If you get something about increasing heap size, try reducing the resolution (drop from 50 to 10 to start). If you see what I have done above in the abstractroundedcube function, I've defined a function with extra parameters. You can easily do the same thing for surfaces.

comment Multiple references separated by semi-colon
@boy: once the software allows you to do so, you should post your resolution (the comment above) as an answer.

comment Egad! What are all those files?
"whether there's any reason to keep them" If they are all generated by pdflatex, then they can all be re-generated by pdflatex....

comment A set of equations, vertically aligned, individually tagged, with subequations, and separate label
It almost works (except for one minor detail): the line heights of equation/align environments aren't always fixed. For example, if you insert \int in front of A+B in the first line of the align, the vertical size and alignment of the array breaks. :-(

Ooh, this looks promising. I'll give it a try tomorrow. Thanks!

I don't want to hard-code the tag for the third equation (which will require me changing the number every single time the document is changed).

comment Hyperref and ntheorem's thref: inconsistent numbering
Ah, thanks for the update. I see how it works now.

comment Spacing (numwidth) control for listtheorems
thanks, but unfortunately I hadn't realised that the fix would also depend on the fact that I am using hyperref. In any case, a suitable modification to the appropriate lines in ntheorem.sty patches the problem.

comment Hyperref and ntheorem's thref: inconsistent numbering
What I am confused about is why the difference introduced by hyperref?

comment Hyperref and ntheorem's thref: inconsistent numbering
Looks like nothing broke! (Just tried both pdf and dvi versions.) So it looks like it works. Thanks. I will leave this open for a little bit just to get some eyes on it. Otherwise I'll accept this answer later today.

comment Hyperref and ntheorem's thref: inconsistent numbering
to distinguish Theorem 1.1.1 in Part 1 and Theorem 1.1.1 in Part 2, I am using smartref's \partref command. I have a macro set-up such that citing theorems in the same part of the book will generate "Theorem 1.1.1", whereas citing theorems in a different part of the book will generate "Part II, Theorem 1.1.1". Since there aren't very many cross-part references, this can help make the text slightly more readable.

comment Why do “in prep” papers behave differently from “year'd” ones?
Yet another reason to switch to biblatex. (Unfortunately that is not my document that is being prepared yada yada.) Thanks for the diagnosis: while it doesn't solve the problem, it cleared up where the problem is (and so we were able to work around it).

comment How to prevent paragraph breaks after theorem environments?
I'm sorry to do this (removing a green check). But I think lockstep's answer below explains it better. Cheers.

comment Why do “in prep” papers behave differently from “year'd” ones?
The question is about why for years, Natbib correctly produces "Author [1997a,b]", but for manuscripts in prep it shows "Author [in prep.a,i]", and how to fix it. I've edited the question to clarify.

comment Why do “in prep” papers behave differently from “year'd” ones?
@Tormod: APA has nothing to do with this question (it is not the style guide used for the preparation of this document). The output referred to in the question text is the desired output: for published paper it should show "Author [year]", and for in prep paper it should read "Author [in prep.]" or "Author [in prep.b]" if it is the second of a list of manuscripts in preparation.

comment Quartertone symbols
Thanks! Just tried it out. I may have to do a little bit of adjustments, but it looks like it would work in a pinch.

@percusse: I'd vote you up if you would post that as an answer, instead of as a comment!

comment Quartertone symbols
@doncherry: that doesn't look right. U+0021 is the unicode number for the exclamation mark. The unicode symbols with the description as the quartertone sharp/flat symbols are U+1D132 and 1D133, but they are not the ones I referred to in my post (the symbols are not completely standardised in the musical community, and the ones I want are more common for Ottoman music).

comment Styling the \part page
I'm sorry for not understanding, but what do you mean by "a whole site"?
