I'm a LATEX fan and package author. Professionally I'm a electronic engineer. I really like pdflatex and start to dislike the DVI mode. I'm using Linux and the vanilla TeXLive.

Originally I started to use LaTeX for my final year project. I quickly wanted to learn how to program my own macros. Because I wanted some better support for my needs I started to write my own packages for my PhD thesis, like svn-multi, standalone and tikz-timing, but also several more.

All my LaTeX packages and support scripts can be found at https://bitbucket.org/martin_scharrer/ (Mercurial repositories) and on CTAN (latest official release) as well as CTANHG (archive of official releases). Feel free to report any bug or feature request using the ticket system there.

I'm a joined member of Dante and TUG, the German and International TeX user groups.

comment Adding header to all pages, removing TOC and double entries in header and costum pagenumbering
Faergen, this site works best with single questions. Please avoid having a large multi-question, especially if it keeps growing. It's difficult to post a single answer which answers all of your points. Also, the reusability of the Q&A suffers greatly. Please consider breaking your question to multiple once.

@ChristianHupfer: Just because the answer is short enough to fit into a comment doesn't mean that it is off topic.

comment Aligning figures in a table
If you only get a small unwanted space, try to add a % directly after { and } when they are at the end of a line, like \subfloat[Fourth]{. Otherwise the line break there is taken as a space. This is explained further in What is the use of percent signs (%) at the end of lines?. Not sure if this happens here, because I don't know the inner context of \subfloat.

It would be good if you add an image of the result so that people can see it directly.
