comment Latex compiling errors: ! Missing $ inserted.<inserted text>$ and ! Missing $ inserted.<inserted text>$ … represent either a 1 or 0; an on or an o_
Please show source context, a few lines around the "represent either a 1 or 0; an on or" should be easy enough to find in your sources.

comment “There's no central alias file bibalias.cfg?”
@egreg: it should make a reasonable attempt to work with \cite variants and overloads, and I never had the inclination or the time to gain a comprehensive overview of all the things bibliography that I'd need. It worked well enough for my thesis, everything else is a bonus. (I had to double-check I hadn't uploaded it, though.)

comment “There's no central alias file bibalias.cfg?”
As Johannes says (and he should make that an answer), the idea is to have a central-ish database, i.e. bibalias.cfg, because if you're only worried about one document ever, you might just as well do a search-and-replace once.

comment Unwanted behavior of Chinese punctuation mark getting incorporated into the URL right before it
Workaround to a zeoth approximation is to add a # to the end of your link, as in many many cases, referencing a non-existing fragment of the page is not harmful.

comment List of frames, where the frames have overlay
@Larara: no, you just shouldn't have a \begin{frame}<2-> because that would tell beamer to skip the first frame altogether. (I think.)

comment reference to equation from other lecture in class beamer
I don't see anything obvious. Your best workaround for the moment might be to combine \lecture with \include and use \includeonly instead of \includeonlylecture.

comment qed symbol not correctly aligned when ending a proof with a diagram
@egreg: Makes me wonder why amongst the myriad of theorem packages, no-one seems to have tried a zero-height line with a smashed tombstone at the end, but that would probably put the tombstone even further down than your third variant.

comment Hide your e-mail address from spam crawlers
@DL6ER: My point exactly. This is not about a spammer getting your adress, this is about you getting legitimate feedback from people who do not speak your language. This looks like a very low barrier, until you set your operating system language to Polish and then try to get anything done. (Language chosen arbitrarily as one I don't speak.)

comment Hide your e-mail address from spam crawlers
@doncherry: with my accessibility hat put on, this requires knowledge of the language and will give you a lot of bounces to john.doemy@foo.com, so it probably also requires knowledge about how last names in your culture are constructed.

comment Add authors as footnote in lncs
It's been a while since I last used it, but doesn't llncs put the author name in the left-hand page header? Thus, a footnote might not give you what you want.

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?)
@user2604484: I don't think there is an automatic provision to re-gain the "empty line" that an empty date would create.

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?
