From the many-argumented \newtheoremstyle, I assume you use amsthm?

comment What does Tex Live have to do with ruby?
Please elaborate on "no longer run". This could even be a simple collision in executable names.

comment can't renew math command '\exp', why?
In the words of the old joke: to understand recursion, you must first understand recursion. In simple-structured cases like this, you can't usefully have the command you're trying to (re)define in the definition itself.

comment Missing $ Inserted After Index
check the output: the erroneous $ will put the text into math mode. (My guess is an errant _ somewhere.)

comment Want to eliminate the automatic time stamp of pdflatex (or lyx?)

Is your goal to get a binary-identical output file every time? There's internal timestamps that pdflatex creates that would need to be disabled, too.

comment Trouble using an image in a Beamer presentation
Can we rule out the file is in fact broken? What does file ./markov.jpeg say when executed on the command line? Does it open in xv, gimp, your browser?

Yes, it appears that funnyshare.org is very down, the name does not currently resolve in the domain name service, you better force another mirror manually.

comment Referring to unnumbered paragraphs
Techniques used for numbering footnotes per page may be useful here, but I foresee problems with paragraphs that are split between pages.

comment Could significant speedups be gained from package code minification?
I guess the equivalent of minification in the LaTeX world is the building of specialized formats. (To a lesser degree, what docstrip does is also minification.)
