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.

A RAID of floppies? Nice ... though it likely also gets faster, depending on the configuration.

But this is not so good for slacking off, as you'll have to change the floppy regularly, if you have some megabytes of data.

comment Batch generated file produces encoding error with latex
You somehow have to make sure that your log file is encoded in UTF-8, too. I have no idea how to do this on Windows, though.

comment Redefining formatting commands to add colors
@gnuvince Yes, in this case it is a "valid" usecase – I just wanted to add this note for the general case. (Also, please note that when you add an @ to the user name, I get a notification about your comment.)

comment Redefining formatting commands to add colors
Please note that instead of redefining the "bold" command it would often be more appropriate to define a new semantic command with a speaking name about what you actually want to express with your bold red text, and use this instead of \textbf.

comment pdflatex endless loop and page headings wrong aligned with dateiliste/babel
Thanks for your analysis (and also to Markus Kohm, who notified me per mail of this question, and proposed a similar solution). I'll try to correct this and release a new version soon.

comment \includegraphics forces new page
If it shall fit on the same page as the section title, a bit smaller than the \textheight might be appropriate.

What does does not work out mean? Do you get some error message, does the icon appear without the link? Or something else?
