comment Why does biber increase compilation time of pdflatex runs dramatically (factor 2.8!!)?
@PLK: thanks a lot! Could you explain your last point and tell me, what to do or not to do?

comment Why is biber so slow?
@PLK: I also experienced biber slowing down my whole compilation process a lot - are you aware of this question ( tex.stackexchange.com/q/230796/4009 ) and my results in its answer and could you comment on that?

@ssdecontrol: I thought I had done that, but it seems I did not directly. In this answer here (tex.stackexchange.com/a/53302/4009 ) the maintainer states that there are good reasons, why biber is slower than bibtex , but I'll ask him about this question here. However it would help me a lot if other people could repeat my "benchmark" on their hardware to see how much time it takes on a recent computer.

comment Can I install TeXLive on Windows 7 just by copy/paste (without affecting the system/registry)?
@JosephWright: thanks. I'll ask for permission, however I'll get it easier if I can confirm that no harm is done to the system. :-) So that means if I follow the general installation instructions tug.org/texlive/windows.html , there will be only files be copied to one path on my system? Then if you write it as an answer, I'll happily accept it.

Thanks, no output would definitely be better than this random output. :-)

comment siunitx: why is there a value in \num{} with empty argument?
hm, would it be possible to throw an error in that case (in the same way as the table-format magically is the output) or is it too complicated?
