Don't fear to edit my posts: even if I have more reputation than you, I do make mistakes.

I'm now also a Moderator Pro Tempore (= until the first elections) at Cryptography Stack Exchange: feel free to come around and ask some cryptography questions.


My personal name is spoken as /ˈpawlo/ (IPA), in English this would be written similar to Powlo, I think (i.e. the vowels are ow and o), with an accent on the before-last syllable (which is the first in this case). It's the Esperanto form of my given name.

The photo shows my shadow, taken at night. My camera sometimes seems to forget all the other frequencies and only stores the green ones.

My current main private programming project is the game of fencing, an online abstract turn based strategy game. Implemented as a Java applet, using git as a version control system.

comment LaTeX abntex package, twoside putting the page number on the wrong side of the page
Are you sure the page-numbers are on the wrong side? If I understand right, they should be at the outer page margin, i.e. right on odd pages and left on even ones. Maybe you are simple binding the book on the wrong side? (Also, the middle margin should be about as large as each of the outer ones.)

comment Entering Unicode characters in LaTeX
Welcome to Stack Overflow! This will only work in certain TeX engines, especially the unicode-capable ones (XeTeX, LuaTeX). Could you add to your answer in which engine your example worked?

comment Why does LaTeX mix up the order of my algorithms and other output?
Also, which package are you using here? Neither the environment algorithm nor algorithmic is part of the LaTeX kernel or the standard classes. Please edit your question to add a complete example there (including the preamble), this spares us guessing the packages your are using.

comment Easily aligning 'from' and 'to' address fields in LaTeX letters
Which document class are you using? The scrlttr2 class (from the KOMA-script package) is quite flexible with lots of settings.

comment Using \ref in moderncv class
Actually, it was first posted on Stack Overflow, and wrongly migrated to Cryptography because of me flagging it wrong (mis-click). Sorry.

comment Where can I find help files or documentation for commands like \@startsection for LaTeX?
Actually, using texdoc packagename (or texdoc source2e for the kernel) will often give better results, as it also contains clarification for the commands.
