comment Tikz Paths in Automata
the second option only works because you hard coded 4cm. That will not work with text that is not that wide. Is there a generic solution that adjusts the distance between nodes to fit the text on a path?

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.

FWIW: In Fedora 18+, packages like texlive-babel-german contains the relevant files.

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!

comment Changing biblatex footcite style to use square brackets around the citation
Cool! Thanks. It works perfectly. A side question, hopefully related enough to not having to open a new question: Is it possible to only bracket the reference and not the pre or post text, i.e. \cite[P. 23]{foo} shall yield ¹ [foo], P. 23. If it's not related enough, I will open a new question.

comment How to make pgfplotstable read tables with macros
You, sir, are awesome. Thanks. It works with the small caveat of one having to provide the optional argument. But that's fine. It looks much like dark magic to me and I am afraid I would have been able to come up with that myself. Can you explain a little what it does, if it's not too much to ask for?

comment What can cause generated PDF document whose text are not correctly copyable?
I mean for an entire text. Pretty much like here but in a more pdfLaTeX way.
