comment Tips for choosing hardware for best LaTeX compile performance
@DavidZ: The only AMD machine at our lab was the big AMD server (48 x Opteron 6180SE@2.5 GHz), which was more than ten percent slower than the Intel workstation (8 X Xeon E5620@2.4 GHz). The current Haswell generation is said to have further increased the advantage over AMD, so I would go for Intel. However, to be really sure I suggest to compare the CPU performance benchmark results at cpubenchmark.net or some similar site.

comment How to specify a direct color in a tikz picture
Like it, but somewhat find the resulting "post-fix" syntax counter-intuitive. IMHO, it should be left color={xcolor={0.5,0.7,0.1}} instead of xcolor={left color={0.5,0.7,0.1}}.

comment Independent publication list with numbered list using biblatex and refsection
@MatthiasPospiech: The command definitions inside the block and its use of arguments cannot be passed "as is" to the argument of another macro (your \IfPackageLoaded). A simple solution would be to just use a TeX conditional: \newif\ifbiblatex \IfPackageLoaded{biblatex}{\biblatextrue}. Then wrap the conditional part with \ifbiblatex and \fi
