comment Different shading for multi-parted tikz node
Thank you. But I'm afraid using multiple stacked nodes is my failsafe. This is what I'm doing right now but I need to do it more systematically. I will wait for some other answers if you don't mind.

@Malipivo, I know about that package. What I want to do however, is out of the boundaries of tcolorbox. What you see above is just the tip of the iceberg ;)

comment How can I design a book cover?
Really nice @Herbert, though I have a question. It seems your examples are front and back of the book. If so, how do you take care of the page counts? What I mean, is that if a book 500 pages, area between front and back should be wider when there are only 50 pages. Is there any mechanism to take care of that or your example are focusing mostly on the designing process?

@Mike, Since I felt some hard feelings in your comment above, I think I beg you a clarification and an apology. What I wrote did not mean you are an abusive user. It was just a possibility about the reasons that resulted in -4 score for your question. It did not mean that it is your fault or anything. If my comment offended you in any ways, I apologize and assure you it was not my intentions. Have a nice stay in TeX.SX.

@tohecz, I think after all, I sounded a bit cynical :D. I have no doubt on the sincerity of the OP. I also completely agree that those serverfaults (pun intended!) can result in such rush here. My point however, is that I guess those answers made some of the users a bit susceptible.

I'm sorry but I couldn't resist this useless comment: Answering the title-> By testing it on different machines...maybe?

@tohecz, I'm one the persons that have serious problems with stackoverflow for their hostile attitude toward new incomers. I also personally don't down-vote, however, I did it for this particular question (and I think it was my first down-vote in TeX.SX). What you don't see here, are three answers, all saying they have the same problem (not real answers) and all were from accounts that were created today. I don't want to sound too cynical but situation sounds a little fishy and I think this raised a little bit of sensitivity. Otherwise, within two years, I had never seen a -4 in this site.

What is happening under this question!? Mike, David, Nabil, Matt, all members for few minutes, all writing something which is not an answer, trying to response to something which is not a question! This post needs moderation attention.

comment Error kile 3 beta on ubuntu 12.10
While fixing this problem is TeX related, downgrading could be asked on askubuntu. If you want to purge and install again with apt-get, maybe it's better to move your question to that website.

By middle you mean precisely 0.5 of text height or you are talking in a general fashion?
