comment Adjust vertical space between headline and text box
This solution worked best for me with beamerposter, because I'm using the column environment in a frame (actually it's a LyX template). I wish there were some way to control this better; tweaking \vspace is a hack and requires more tweaking if you change font size, etc.

It's worth adding that this problem applies to beamerposter as well.

@karlkoeller not a good solution with beamerposter since it has multiple blocks.

comment URL of cited web site in bibliography
Thanks for providing this. Have you considered updating it to support the urldate BibTeX field so that it properly appends (accessed date ) per this Chicago Style Guide.

comment What is the best way to get BibTeX entries from ISBN number?
Lead2Amazon seems to have the most BibTeX fields. Many other sites don't include totalpages, edition, etc.

comment How do I get BibTeX entries from amazon.com?
BibTeX for books only list the first author, e.g., ottobib.com/works-cited/8130616f41

comment How do I get BibTeX entries from amazon.com?
Zotero takes too many steps/clicks (install it, capture ref in library, export to BibTex file, open file in text editor, etc.). Furthermore, I found it's not reliable with Amazon.com. It often gets the author's names backwards (first, last) and/or doesn't have any authors.

comment MiKTeX service unavailable for downloading new packages
MiKTeX authors could add the "Possible reason: repositories are temporarily offline due to configuration error." It's happened more than once in the past year, and this question has over 200 views already in one day.

comment MiKTeX package manager: service unavailable
Three spontaneous up-votes today are not a fluke. From miktex.org: "8/5/2015 Problem with the latest update / package repository temporarily offline"
