I am a postdoc in philosophy.

I contribute to a blog for philosophers who use LaTeX. If you fall in to that niche, check it out: PhilTeX. (The blog will be of use to all kind of humanities scholars using LaTeX, I imagine, but it was started by, and is run by philosophers...) The blog is currently defunct, but may be resurrected soon.

I made this beamer colour change package that slowly changes the colour of structure elements of beamer presentations. Feedback welcome. I also made this moreenum package which adds new enumeration options. The TeX goodies page of my website includes some other bits and bobs I've done.

Easy. Draw a Sierpinski Triangle, but stop before you've finished.

comment Embedding Mercurial version control information in a TeX document
@FaheemMitha Yes. This is what vc bundle does. You can call shell scripts from within tex using \write18, I don't know the details, but look at the vc bundle documentation for how to do it.

@Bordaigorl This is the approach vc bundle takes.

comment Embedding Mercurial version control information in a TeX document
@FaheemMitha vc bundle is just a simple script that calls your VCS to get various bits of information (commit date, version number etc) and writes the output into a tex file into the definition of a tex macro. This macro can then be used to put the info in your document. It should be pretty easy to write up the relevant mercurial script if you know mercurial.

You could adopt a similar approach to the vc bundle but with a script that write the info from hg to some file that tex reads...

comment Beamer handout mode: explicitly printing “half-way” frames
@cfr I don't know if this is the place to talk about it, but PhilTeX is kind of in hiatus. Charlie left academia, and myself and Mark are both too busy to "reboot" the site. The content should still be available...

comment Beamer handout mode: explicitly printing “half-way” frames
@cfr The answers to those questions don't work for the current problem, while Daniel's solution here does seem to (still testing it). So, no. This isn't a duplicate of those questions, although they are related.
