comment How to modify a bibliography style to surround titles in quotes in a bibliography?
@AlanMunn Put the title of the paper, book or article within double quotes. I don't question things at the point where I'm just making revisions :)

comment How can I setup my data so I can create pgfplots boxplots and update the x-indices for multiple series?
This works. It also makes me wonder if there is a better way to do my data, because this requires some care in setting it up (which I guess is ok).

comment Do you use TeX for writing your thesis or only for its composition?
This rough idea would have saved me a lot of time, I suspect, on the whole for writing.

comment Do you use TeX for writing your thesis or only for its composition?
@ArTourter or just make a fairly poorly formatted word document out of the Latex (either from html or something else) - for some this may be "good enough" for drafts.

comment How best to procrastinate and learn LaTeX?
I had never used LaTeX until my thesis but wanted to learn it and it was a perfect opportunity. You have perfectly articulated why I probably would finish faster if I used notepad++ instead...

Awesome. I have a feeling that's by far the easier of my two options...

comment Is there a tool/script available to simply install packages locally?
You download package.tds.zip put it in your local texmf tree and unzip it. It puts all the files exactly where you want them. <-- this does not work for me on Redhat6 Linux

comment Ubuntu Tex Live installation error
+1. You have to change that environment variable if installing to a different location than the system default (or if you do not have sudo privileges, etc).

@Timebandit this would not be a problem if I did not have two labels in the same section/subsection/etc

comment Link to equation and change text?
This took a weird sequence of compiling but eventually worked (you seemingly need to compile the \newcommand successfully before you can use the \labeltarget). Thanks much - LaTeX is sure neat :)
