LaTeX Beginners Guide


I'm a TeX enthusiast. After studying mathematics in Jena and Hamburg I've been working as IT Admin and Communication Officer onboard of cruise ships. Pictures of those years can be found on twentyknots.com.

Now I'm employed as a IT Network & Security Engineer for a cruise company.

For some years I've been working as a freelance programmer, since many years I'm working with LaTeX. I'm a friend of Linux and Ubuntu user.

I'm maintaining

and I'm an active user in several math forums such as on matheplanet.com.

comment What is the clearest way to graph a piecewise function?
You created a lot of very good PSTricks examples. Would you like the idea of a PSTricks gallery in the very same shape as the TikZ gallery? I could setup a server with the same structure (based on PostgreSQL and Django) but exclusively for PSTricks. Would be a nice showcase and useful for new users. I could care for gallery maintainance and feeding in content, which is sent to me by email or taken from here.

Welcome to TeX.SE! Please poste the code that you already have, so not every helping reader would need to type that all again.

Nice to read that you were able to solve it. As it's a bit unclear (and solved) I closed the question. You can still comment or vote to reopen if you would like to write an answer.

comment Filling specified area by random dots in TikZ
Very sophisticated! I added also this one to the PGFplots example gallery - and more of your great plotting codes. If you would like to show further plots made by you, let me know - this would be great! Also, if you sometimes might think about a guest blog post on pgfplots.net, to share some pgfplots tricks, I would be glad.

comment Table in the shape of an arrow
@GonzaloMedina Thank you! I updated the TeXample file too. I noticed it still works with PGF 2.10 as well, and the code looks better.

comment How do I create an acknowledgment section?
@Ome Then put this code before \tableofcontents. report is usually a good choice, book is more book-like, default settings are different. You can switch between them at any time to see, how the layout changes.

comment Migrating Texniccenter and Biber to a new computer fails
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about an installation difference of 32-bit and 64-bit MiKTeX version and it was solved by reinstallation of MiKTeX.

comment Arrowed line on axis via coordinates: Dimension too Large - Error
Since it cannot be reproduced, the code doesn't contain the problem, the question will be closed. You can update it, adding required information, in that case we can reopen it.
