I am a PhD candidate at the University of New South Wales. I love LaTeX because it makes my documents look fantastic and I can do all sorts of presentation and data-integration tricks that Word or OO users wouldn't be able to do in a million years, in particular, integrating R with LaTeX is a great combination.

I encourage my colleagues to use LaTeX, but not many people are willing to go through the (quick) learning curve despite recognizing and commenting on the obvious presentation differences...

comment print a receipt
@Clément its just a marker to point to the invoice number which needs to be changed, directly below on the next line. Personally, I don't see why you would want to do receipts with latex when there are about a million accounting packages built for this purpose (amongst other things)...

comment Showcase TeX Typography for TUG's Calendar
I wrote the package because I wanted to do a word cloud on my research reference database. I use bibtex. Every record has fields such as author={...} title = {...} journal = {...} etc. Therefore, the fields names (author, title, journal etc...) get used over and over and over again. If they are not removed, the word cloud puts too much emphasis on these words, which are essentially irrelevant.

comment To get this WordCloud and R working in OSX's Texpad -1.6.0
The .Rnw file as provided in my original competition submission depends on the custom R package. I have made the package available too : app.box.com/s/rqcxvpyghqb1yx3zg2ys

comment trying to put 19 * 6 pictures in a figure
I would use R and ggplot2 with the facet_wrap() geometry to produce a single plot in the format you desire. Use the .pdf, .png or .tikz device to put the plot into a format acceptable to LaTeX. docs.ggplot2.org/0.9.3.1/facet_wrap.html If you wanted to share your data, I would be happy to put together a working example.
