Learnt LaTeX while in placement in my third year in 1999 when my assignment was to work on a massive code but was only given an laptop to do it, so had to find something to do during the long hours the thing took to compile, and solitaire doesn't remain fun for that long. I haven't look back since. Now a researcher at the University of Bristol. All my outputs are in LaTeX from papers to presentations to posters.

comment Declare acronyms and abbreviations to automatically correct spaces after periods?
The issue the with etc. is that it is an abbreviation and that it can legitimately occur at the end of a sentence. At this point you do not want to to quell the end of sentence spacing.

comment Longtable overfilling the bottom margin with longtable and figures
Ah! well spotted @egreg. I thought the problem looked familiar!

comment Longtable overfilling the bottom margin with longtable and figures
There seem to be an incompatibility between longtable and your geometry specifications, but I can't identify it yet. If you remove the geometry line, the document becomes 4 pages long with the last page containing the last 3 rows. Also note that your tables are wider than the text area as defined with your geometry (but that is not what is causing the problem)

comment Referencing Subfigure in Subfloat
@Tobold I cannot see any references to subfloat in the subcaption documentation. \continuedfloat is provided by the caption package and does not seem to have anything to with the usage of \subfloat: it is used after a \begin{figure} or \begin{table}.

comment Referencing Subfigure in Subfloat
silly question, why not use subfig then if it works? I don't know subcaption, so the syntax may be correct, but by the look of it the syntax you are using is that of subfig.

comment pgfplots: non uniform line width for interrupted plot
I have had the same problem recently and indeed the clip=false was the solution but to me this behaviour doesn't make that much sense as if you use markers, the markers do not get clipped but the lines do. A Behaviour where only the points which coordinates are outside the defined plot area get clipped, but if it is only the line thickness for data point inside the plotting area, then it really should not get clipped.

comment Problems with \bm and LuaLaTeX
Looks like you are using texlive 2011. it might be a good idea to upgrade to texlive 2012. As the others here I have no problem compiling your code using LuaTeX, Version beta-0.70.2-2012101900 (TeX Live 2012TeX Live 2012)

comment Problem of Arabic numbers in math mode with 'New TX' math font option [Libertine] compiled by XeLaTeX
This is not related to your original question and definitely not an answer to it. you do not mention anywhere the use of hyperref. I suggest you ask another question with an appropriate MWE

Indeed, reading the fontspec manual, fontspec is not enough to do this. you need to use the mathspec package instead (it will also load fontspec). This is where using XeLaTeX becomes a bit of a drag as you have to specify every single files for each shape. See the edit to the answer.

GAH! I keep on forgetting XeLaTeX cannot find distro font by name, and that one has to use the filename instead! try \setmathrm{LinLibertine_R.otf}. And you drop the \usepackage{newtxmath} here as it does not do anything (I think).

comment Are bitmap fonts too fuzzy or is it just me?
@wasteofspace the LaTeX abstract is from the memoir manual which uses the URW Palladio font (which is a variant of the linotype Palatino font). The LO font looks like the default LiberationSerif font made to be a close free alternative Times New Roman (although it is not identical).

It is also rather difficult to compare the rendering as the two examples are using different fonts (some Palatino type for the LaTeX doc and something close to Times New Roman in the LO one). Also note that the rendering is not done by LaTeX itself but by the pdf viewer you are using. For example Adobe Reader used to be extremely bad at rendering Type3 font whereas other pdf viewers were not.
