comment How to fix TikZ node's height with \heightof?
Nice solution. Can it be done generically? I.e. without having manually provide the contents of the largest node to the minimum height? But rather that it equalises the sizes of the boxes based on the largest node?

comment Installation of pythontex
This answer is not helpful. Ubuntu does (as of today) not ship that package, cf. packages.ubuntu.com/…

comment Having several keys refer to the same bibliography entry
I have the same issue using a contemporary Ubuntu which seems to ship 1.7-1. Do you know what version is compatible?

comment Can a bibtex entry be given more than one reference name?
the drawback it, though, that you have to change \cite to \acite.

Is there also a non ad-hoc solution? ;-)

comment How to overbrace / underbrace in text mode (using TikZ?)
I found out that adding nodes={anchor=south}, text height=1.5ex,text depth=.25ex to the style of the matrix makes it look nice.

comment How to overbrace / underbrace in text mode (using TikZ?)
Wow! Awesome. Excellent answer. But somehow the heights seems to differ. If you look closely at the Port portion you will notice that the brace is lower than the Host brace. The effect is very visible when using a different font, i.e. Palatino. Would it be possible to have the braces aligned nicely?

comment Changing biblatex footcite style to use square brackets around the citation
Wow! Amazing. It works. A minor thing now is that the footnotes are followed by a period. The documentation also mentions that \footcite exposes this behaviour. But it's not the required style. So if it's possible to get rid of that, it'd be super cool. I think I understand that the various used bibmacros are to look at, but I have a hard time finding out how the bibmacros are defined. So a pointer here would be appreciated. Many thanks!
