comment What is the easiest way to generate a compact bibliography?
@ChrisH: This is a question of the chosen bibliography style, but sure: Just add \renewbibmacro{in:}{} to your preamble and it will disappear.

@Dror: There is no specific need for bibtex as backend. I just used it because biber is not yet installed on my machine. Regarding the brackets, the 'In:' and so on: The good thing with biblatex is that all this can relatively easily be changed (see @moewe's comment). A detailed specification would be good, though.

Further space reduction is possible by changing the font, the layout of the bibliography (for instance the indentation of the entries) and so on. However, I don't know if that is an option for you.

comment Code-trolling/prank questions for TeX.SX?
The update-tl.sh IMHO crosses the borderline: Trolling someone who is far below your own technical skills is cheap and mean. However, with somebody who knows just a bit about UNIX and shell scripting, it won't work – the virus code is pretty obvious.

I would not like to see code trolling on the main site. However, I have been enjoying the answers given here quite a bit :-)

comment LyX enlarging inserted images
In other words, the size in your appear exactly the same size as they actually are is (and has to be) of a physical length unit and can never be "pixel". Take also a look at tex.stackexchange.com/questions/4430/…

comment LyX enlarging inserted images
What is the size of the image? From the screen shots, I assume you are inserting a bitmap image of, let's say, AxB pixels. The LyX editor renders it pixel-wise on the screen. However, in PDF, the entity "pixel" just does not exist – everything has to be a length unit, such as pt, mm or inch. So the PDF renderer takes another parameter into account, the "dots-per-inch" (actually pixels per inch) that tells him the assumed physical size of each pixel. It then has to scale it depending on the output device (printer, screen at various resolutions, and so on).

comment Do something on every second page
@Gaussler: You are absolutely right, it is not necessary! The purpose was to ship out the current page (provided in \AtBeginShipoutBox) before inserting the \EvenPageContent, so that the latter does not make it accidentally onto an odd page. However, that was a logical mistake: When the shipout handler is invoked, LaTeX has already finished the construction of the odd page, so new content goes to the next page anyway. I have simplified the code.
