TeX is for me like Unix: there is always something new to explore. I am especially curious to learn more about TeX to spice up my LaTeX code and write some domain-specific macros. I am happy to share my knowledge from writing scientific documents in computer science. These days I'm using LaTeX mostly for reports, in combinations with R, for serial letters, and for creating (PDF) forms.

comment Are postscript printers necessary for printing large pdfs compiled from LaTeX files?
Are you referring to TeX specials that emit PS that ends up in a PDF? Or are you referring to genuine PDF operators? In any case, this is not a matter of document length.

comment Determine last day of given month
The number of days in each month is independent of the year except for February which depends on the year being a leap year or not. Wouldn't it be easier to just encode the leap year algorithm and use an if-cascade? if year is not divisible by 4 then common year else if year is not divisible by 100 then leap year else if year is divisible by 400 then leap year else common year
