comment Token replacement within a group
@Manuel Thanks btw. Can you think of a better solution than iterating with \tl_head, handling a group as the head separately, and piecing back together?

@Manuel Oh wow, I feel a little dumb now. My whole question could have been about 5 lines long haha.

comment Is it possible to pass options to mpost.exe using luamplib?
@fpast Ah, many thanks. So is my answer below then incorrect? If you'd be inclined to write up a corrected version (or canonical version) then I'd be happy to accept it.

comment How to negate a specific symbol?
@Werner I think it's a great idea to have a canonical answer for this type of question. I'm not well versed in this sort of stuff however, so couldn't provide the kind of answer required.

comment How to negate a specific symbol?
There are a couple of good answers here that might be adapted if you don't like the looks of \not.

comment How to negate a specific symbol?
There may be other ways, but all I know for a general rule is to throw a \not in front of they symbol to be negated.

comment Changing University Name in gatech-thesis Document Class
Have you tried searching the class file for "Georgia Institute of Technology"? If you simply want it to say something different, then search/replace in the class file might be easiest.

comment Automatically generated BINGO cards
@aklingensmith I think it's fixed now. Either I was out to lunch, or sequences used to be indexed starting at 0, and are now indexed starting at 1. I changed the code to reflect this.

comment Automatically generated BINGO cards
@aklingensmith Hi there, one of the functions used in the code was deprecated, I replaced it with the new version. I'm also getting a blank that I can't explain at the moment. I'll have a look and see if I can figure out why.

comment Using TeX to split words into syllables
You pointed it out above, but to give a concrete example from the example paragraph. "Sizable" has only one hyphenation point, siz-able, yet (for me at least) has 3 syllables: siz-a-ble.

comment How can I use plain TeX with TeXnicCenter or another IDE?
As an additional option, follow Werners instructions, but for the profile LaTeX->pdf, change pdflatex.exe to pdftex.exe to bypass the .ps step.

Maybe a low rep user could compile all this info into an answer including the centering information, the horizontal lines and the automatic mathmode setup.
