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 Naming LaTeX files: best practice?
The second point should also have a "modern" in it, since I know quite some file systems (e.g. FAT 16) which are not case-preserving. And VFAT for example converts UPPERCASE names to Titlecase. (I'm not sure these file systems are in use anymore ... but there still may be USB sticks or such).

comment includegraphics - inserting png image leads to blank picture
Alternatively (if you like the draft option for the black markings of overfull boxes, but still want to see the images) you could add a final option to the graphicx package, which overrides the default set by \documentclass[draft].
