comment Are there any repositories of “killer slides” for Beamer?
@Ben, @Konrad: Oddly, I had the exactly opposite reaction. I fled the productivity killing presentation softwares for Beamer.

Do you know if you can you do that with hg?

comment What packages do people load by default in LaTeX?
@levesque: Tikz has a fairly steep learning curve, but it is beautifully documented and provides rich libraries. I find the vector graphics that I produce in tikz to be superior to those I produced in inkscape. It seems easier on my brain to stay in keyboard mode as well.

I understand the convention. The difficulty, in this particular case, is that without the actual data files the preamble doesn't help at all. I will add the style definitions, but it still won't be compilable.

I don't see why. The only lines that aren't are \usepackage statements are style definitions, cyclelist definitions, and data references. None of which have anything to do with the problem, and at least some of which wouldn't do you any good without the data.

I'll have to check this out. If this occurs inline than it's the coolest thing ever.

comment Running BibTex from TextMate
That isn't a mistake, actually. I almost never use the same name for my .bib and .tex files. But when you do use different names, you have to put in the command \bibliography{bibname.bib} at the end of your document.

What happens if you clean the folder of its aux, bst, etc, run pdflatex and then bibtex (and then pdflatex twice) from the command line?
