I did study math and had a knack for it, but I am sooo out of that business now ...

comment Redefining Infinity in LaTeX
If you want to be understood by other mathematicians, use established symbols. Or do you also write ":" instead of "2" because the colon better represents two-hood? --That beng said, you might add a small white blob on top of the standard $\infty$ symbol (assuming you only write on white background)

comment How to get a properly centred horizontal rule?
I think the \hfillat the end gets eaten (and replaced with \parfilskip), henc is superfluous; in fact, if this were not the case, it would be stronger than the \hfilin the beginning!

comment Defining custom commands is bad style?
Then again, defining a shorthand for "Hilbert space" prevents "Hilbret space" typoes ...

comment poor man's condensed with pdflatex
@StephanLehmke Would you care to elaborate? I must admit I'm always getting lost between all those files making up a font (.pfb, .vf, .afm, .tfm, .map, .fd) and their interdependencies ...

@Jubobs Letters should keep their heights but become slightly smaller horizontally (e.g. if big O is a circle it should become more elliptical). A proper (not poor man's) condensed font would make considerations for stroke witdths etc., but for not so strong condensing something "mechanical" should suffice.
