I'm just a single point on a complex plane. I'm not the strongest species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change. I always feel restless despite being in the safe zone. You can't teach me anything, but you can stimulate me to think! I am a detail-oriented analyst and interested in almost everything. Consistency, optimization, best-practice, & perfection are always my first priority in mind! Therefore by my questions & answers you'll fully recognize me. I can tell you more but then I have to kill you.

I distribute my rep in bounties as spending money for my & your pleasure is more meaningful than saving money in a bank & abandoning it unused.

"If you're an underdog, mentally disabled, physically disabled, if you don't fit in, if you're not as pretty as the others, you can still be a hero, read TEXBook!"

"Motivation isn't enough. If you've an idiot & you motivate him, now you've a motivated idiot."

Learning (La)TeX, PSTricks, & PGF/TikZ is similar to learning how to swim or drive a car. You don’t get the full benefit by watching someone else do it. Your own fingers must get involved.

Don't be lukewarm! If you cannot be the best, be the worst!

Beauty without intelligence is a masterpiece painted on a toilet paper.

For every problem, there is always a solution that is simple, neat, but wrong.

Best practices

  1. Use pdflatex \input{filename} instead of pdflatex filename.
  2. Don't specify the file extension in \includegraphics.
  3. Divide your project into a main & smaller input files & compile the main with pdflatex.
  4. Put each code snippet 4 either drawing a diagram or making a table into a standalone input file & compile it to produce a PDF.
  5. Define global macros 4 often-used materials, put them into a separate package thereby changing the macros in one place will effect the whole document.
  6. Remove unnecessary packages.
  7. Don't mix different series, families, font size, & shapes, ESPECIALLY IN ONE SENTENCE.
  8. Obey.

comment How to fill an annulus (region bounded by two concentric circles)?
It is much better if you also provide us with the screenshot of your output so we don't need to compile your code in our mind.

comment How to change the label color of \psaxes?
I don't understand why there is no a semantically-correct key to change the color of \psaxes labels. labelFontSize key should be used just to change the size rather than the color.

@DavidCarlisle: Thank you very very much.

Sorry. So CTAN maintainers will sync CTAN with texnik.dante.de or otherwise the PSTricks author upload the packages from texnik.dante.de to CTAN?In my understanding, texnik.dante.de is the master files that will be duplicated by CTAN and then propagated to other mirrors around the globe.

comment How can the last updated packages get propagated earlier than the first updated packages
@DavidCarlisle: Up to now, I still don't understand the workflow of a package from when it is written/updated (by an author) to when it is available in mirrors. So my questions are chronologically: (1).For example, an author updates a package and upload it to texnik.DANTE.de/tex/generic. Does this update become a master file which will be duplicated by other mirrors? (2) After, the author upload the updated package, does he/she also need to make an extra configuration such that it can be used by TeXLive and MikTeX and others? Is such an configuration identical for TeXLive, MikTeX, & other?

Last Update, First Propagated. It behaves like a stack.

comment How to get fractional labels with psaxes?
The update of pst-plot was done on August 24 but up to now it has not been propagated to TeXLive mirrors. A weird thing happened: pst-poly updated on August 28 has been propagated to TeXLive mirrors.
