A computer scientist at heart with a conviction for deduction.

I'm a poor mathematician but pretty decent with TeX. Let me return the favor!

TeX.SE rules.

Check out my blog over on @GitHub! It has (or will have) a lot of good resources:

  • StackExchange markdown reference (to link; things like explicit syntax highlighting and a short rundown of markdown)
  • Recommended TeX resources and editors

Insanely curious, slightly snarky, and a little absent-minded.

comment Matlab axis labels always remain small when converted to pdf
I agree; I would check that the PDF looks how it's supposed to in a standard PDF viewer (like Adobe Reader, Evince, or Skim). My suspicion is that it does not.

comment Is there a quick way to jump out of brackets in TexMaker?
Emacs does :) Emacs treats brace groups as lists, so the list navigation functionality works as you'd expect. I have them bound to Ctrl+(Up|Down|Left|Right) respectively.

comment Documenting on code revisions
While the base concept of annotated screenshots might be an answer, the tool itself doesn't really matter. I personally would not use such a method, but that's just me.

comment SplitArgument on colon doesn't work under expl3 syntax
That was also my thought---there are a lot of tools in expl3 now that could be used to effect this. I'll raise it tonight if I can; I just felt like I needed to note this here. Not sure why. (I'm going through old, unaccepted questions of mine.)
