comment Write pseudo code in latex
Don't overlook (like I did!) the excellent and brand spanking new (2015) package algorithm2e!

comment Subfiles in subdirectory, file not found
I gave up on subfiles. Seems like a far better option is to use import package: sharelatex.com/learn/Management_in_a_large_project

comment Subfiles in subdirectory, file not found
@Fran I'm not sure I follow, but seems like "styling" includes subfiles package, which in turn fails on sub-directory paths.

comment Subfiles in subdirectory, file not found
@Fran It is not a duplicate. This one deals specifically with subfiles package, with which I also get an error if I place sub-files in separate directories.

comment Tools for automating document compilation
Just a heads up, arara, as of right now, is not very actively developed.

comment TikZ manual newest version online?
Changing the accepted answer to this. Since the stable version is outdated (at this time) ctan.org/pkg/pgf this is better.

comment Can I plot an average-line plot like this with PGFPlots?
I hoped that pgfplots solution exists - I'd much prefer ready made plot than drawing my own. Thanks, I saw that question - but I don't need boxes - just a line showing the "average".

@percusse Just want to see if anything new came up. Looks like arara git repo has not been updated in over a year.

comment How to compile glossaries with arara without Perl?
@cmhughes Sorry, I downvoted not because the answer is bad, but because the approach is currently not viable because arara has o way of discovering rules in the local directory. I prefer the other approach of hard-coded inline directives. I shouldn't have downvoted in retrospect --- I was only doing so comparative to the other possibility.

@Nicola, please post this as an answer.

comment How to compile glossaries with arara without Perl?
Sadly, this solution is rather cumbersome, as it requires me to add my project location to the search path for the rules. The original comment by Nicola is, while admittedly less general, is much simpler and convenient.

Is there any way to specify this directly in .tex file without the additional yaml file?

comment How to compile glossaries with arara without Perl?
Hm... I am pretty sure it's not installed (I am using Miktex). But from what I understand makeglossaries is simply a wrapper around makeindex. I guess I want to run that directly. Is this not a standard practice? Thanks.

comment How can I find out whether I have 32bit or 64bit of MiKTeX installed?
Thanks, you should make this into an answer. It is indeed true, that paths are different and reflect the architecture type.

@AIB Better than Perl! (required by latexmk)

comment How can I find out whether I have 32bit or 64bit of MiKTeX installed?
Well, great! I just found out that it's 64bit. It seems ProTeXT in all it's wisdom installs 64bit version of MiKTeX!!! That's the last time I'm using that

comment Produce a “margin” note and align rows of columns in beamer
Thanks Adam. Looks great, but doesn't it feel a bit dirty setting the spacing manually? Or is this normal practice? (I'm no latex expert... my knowledge of css is better haha.)

comment Produce a “margin” note and align rows of columns in beamer
E.g. the word "science... should align with frame title.

comment Produce a “margin” note and align rows of columns in beamer
Oh, no just flush left with the slide. The title should be aligned with the content (in this case, left column -- just like in my example). Thank you! This looks already much better.
