comment Extra blank page with Bayesian Analysis journal style file
Ok. I guess this is usage error, then. I was using an earlier style, and I guess I didn't change properly to the style. Sorry for the noise, and thanks for setting me straight.

I see. So that extra footnote stuff makes a difference?

comment Extra blank page with Bayesian Analysis journal style file
@HarishKumar You're right. My bad. Now, when I remove that space, the title disappears altogether. Do you get that too?

comment Extra blank page with Bayesian Analysis journal style file
You get one page at the beginning with the long title and not much else. Then the second page starts with the short title.

@HarishKumar Sorry, my long and short was transposed. I've fixed it now.

comment Extra blank page with Bayesian Analysis journal style file
@HarishKumar yes, the question is why it goes from two pages to one page. My MWE may have been a little too minimal.

@HarishKumar If you remove the blank line, do you get one page?

@cfr how does that tell me how it was built?

comment Installing biber for use with TeX Live 2013 on Debian wheezy
Having downloaded biber-linux_x86_64.tar.gz from sourceforge.net/projects/biblatex-biber/files/biblatex-biber/…, it consists of exactly one file - a binary called biber. :-) I wonder how that was built.

comment Installing biber for use with TeX Live 2013 on Debian wheezy
@cfr I misspoke. The biber package refused to build, because 5.16 was not available. I could certainly make 5.16 available locally and try to build against it, but would it be needed at runtime or not? My understanding is that at runtime, the interpreter is needed. This is certainly the case with Python packages/libraries, but I'm really not that familiar with Perl, as I am not a user.

@cfr Well, perl is a base component, so you don't want it to change very much. But TeX Live is end user, so you generally want to stay up to date if possible. Having said that, how does the local Tex Live install solve the Perl problem, and can I do the same? Also, I've used my own backports before - I've never had any problem.

comment Adding blank pages when generating multiple copies of a document
@DavidCarlisle Yes, but I only want that if the number of pages is odd. Is there some way of determining that programmatically?

comment Adding an option to the PDFLaTeX call from AUCTeX
@giordano I suppose I am. I haven't checked lawlist's answer yet, though. Sure, I'd be interested in a per-document way.

comment Writing TeX file name at the top of the processed document for article class
Thanks for your answer, tohecz. However, I can't get this to show anything using a minimal example. I'll stick it in chat.

comment Blank page before TikZ family tree picture
I tried the version you posted, and it worked. My version had a bunch of other stuff which you had taken out, like the calls to \setlength. Sorry for the confusion.

comment Blank page before TikZ family tree picture
Hi Harish. For the version using standalone, namely \documentclass[tikz,border=5pt]{standalone}, the left side of the picture gets cut off, for both my original and revised version.

OK, but I don't see the logic to this.

comment Blank page before TikZ family tree picture
Something I don't understand: You wrote "LaTeX tries its best to fit it in the first page and throws the error:" [snip] "Being unsuccessful, it pushes the picture to the second page leaving first one empty." But I don't see why the second page is a better fit than the first page. By this logic, shouldn't it keep pushing the figure forward ad-infinitum?
