comment How to use otf fonts correctly?
Thanks @Herbert for this, I had not realised that. These days I tend to use lualatex exclusively so by default I will load fontspec. but I don't always use unicode-math so I got in the habit of adding it to my default setup when needed. Looking as the unicode-math source, fontspec is loaded without options so if one need to use the [no-math] option, one need to make sure that fontspec is loaded before unicode-math, or one use the \PassOptionsToPackage{}{} command instead.

comment centering rotated tikz labels
Yes indeed I had tried specifying the anchor to the label and like you I found that it didn't have any effect. I have been relunctant to use extra nodes as I wanted the code as simply as possible since I have 5 or 6 of these things of top of each other. Originally I also tried specifying the 2 common labels in the tikzset{every node/.style=...} thing but that didn't work anyway.

do not use fontenc and fontspec together. with LuaLaTeX and XeLaTeX use fontspec, with anything else, use fontenc

comment Years before note with BibLaTeX?
if you are only using the note field for the visited date, you could probably replace this with the urldate field, which take the date only in the same format as the date field would, and will behave as you want. but then again, as you are using biblatex, I would use the @online entry and replace the howpublish field with the url one (and no need to enclose the actual url in \url{}) as well.

comment Frequently loaded packages: Differences between XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX
indeed, managed to make the load by filename work with XeLaTeX. although the procedure when using opentype fonts from the TeX distro is cumbersome since all shapes must be specified. From the fontspec docs: This technique is also necessary in XETEX when loading OpenType fonts that are present within your TEX distribution, such as /usr/local/texlive/2010/texmf-dist/fonts/opentype/ public. Fonts in such locations are visible to XETEX but cannot be loaded by font name, only file name; LuaTEX does not have this restriction.

comment Frequently loaded packages: Differences between XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX
The main difference that I have come across between the two is how it handle fonts from fontspec. One example is that it seems that both have a different way of defining where to look for font, at least it is the case on my system, and although I have no problem using LuaLaTeX, I cannot make XeLaTeX use anything but the default font as it cannot find them (whether I use the font name or the font file name).

comment How does quotchap package deal with chapters read from external files?
the chapter definition in your file specifically says not to number that chapter, this is what the * in \chapter*{} mean.

comment Fit large table horizontally into a page
With that many columns you may need to consider swaping the rows and columns or rotating it for the table to be readable. You can force the table to be resized to fit the textwidth but that will resize the font as well and therefore may make the text too small to read.

comment Incorrect parametric pgfplot
probably a slightly easier code to use would be to use the deg function provided by pgfplots: t - sin(deg(t))
