comment How to split the bibliography alphabetically?
@sudosensei You need to use the bibencoding setting if you want to mix your tex and bib encodings. Refer to "specifying encodings" in the manual.

comment Sorting citations using \cites command in biblatex
@user4514 That error resolves after you run biber the first time. To avoid it entirely replace the biber-specific code with \ifcsundef{blx@slists@\the\c@refsection @entry@\blx@sorting}{}{\global\letcs{\cbx@sortkeys}{blx@slists@\the\c@refsection @entry@\blx@sorting}}.

comment How to switch conjunction from “and” to “or” when using many bibkeys in textcite?
@moewe Just go with \newrobustcmd*{\textciteor}{\AtNextCite{\useor}\textcite}. BTW: Thanks a bunch for your posts here.

comment biblatex: Tighter integration of \textcite “in the flow of text”
@math It is possible, but you wouldn't re-define \textcite that way - probably something like \AtNextCite{<swap and string with or string>}\textcite. This comment trail is long enough, so please ask a new question.

comment How to split the bibliography alphabetically?
@sudosensei (a) I can't see how you could get that error with biber, especially a newer version. (b) Make use of the usera field in your bib file and in the hook put, \iffieldundef{usera}{\addtocategory{\thefield{sortinit}}{\thefield{entrykey}}}{‌​\addtocategory{\thefield{usera}}{\thefield{entrykey}}}}.

comment How to split the bibliography alphabetically?
@sudosensei Use biber or override the sortinit value with another field - say usera = {A}. sortinit will be changing with new (biber-only) features and its construction under BibTeX could use some improvement. So I won't get around to making this answer more comprehensive till those changes are released.

comment Make specific author bold using biblatex without consistent author formatting
@Jeremy Sorry - I had a typo. Should be \forcsvlist{\listadd\boldnames}{...} following the first example. Each item in the name list should be in the format {<last name>, <first name>}, where <first name> should be the full name only.

comment Make specific author bold using biblatex without consistent author formatting
@Jeremy firstinits doesn't change the data, just how it is displayed. In the \boldnames list you must specify all the ways your last and first names appear in the bbl file. Under biber this could be \boldnames{{Conlin, Jeremy\bibnamedelima Lloyd}, {Conlin, J.\bibnamedelimi L.}, {Conlin, J.}}, but you'll have to check the bbl file. All of this was covered in the original post. I don't think your issue warrants a new question, but feel free to post an answer.

@Jeremy Then don't enable firstinits. It is enabled in the examples just for demonstration.
