I am a mathematician by profession and quite a long-time (since around 1995 – as of now [2014], this means more than half of my life) TeX user by hobby.

I started with plain TeX, and much later (in the early 2000s) moved to LaTeX; I still use plain TeX occasionally (and when writing LaTeX classes/packages). Quite recently I also started to use ConTeXt.

I am a heavy Emacs user, though still a newbie – I started in 2001.

I have a blog about (among others) TeX and friends, located at http://mbork.pl/Content_AND_Presentation.

comment Vertical position of punctuation following fractions in display-style equations
@mforbes: "looking at ams classes" might result in insanity;). I wouldn't worry - I'd just try and see;).

comment Vertical position of punctuation following fractions in display-style equations
As for your second question: it shouldn't be difficult to redefine \frac (and \dfrac) to look ahead and if the next token is a comma, then gobble it and put one itself, raised a bit. But man, this is a good question. I'd upvote it twice if that were possible...

comment How to change the appeareance of bibliography item labels in amsrefs?
@StephanLehmke: good point indeed, though in my case I know exactly what packages I load and therefore I could do without it.

@GonzaloMedina: thanks a lot. Already knowing a bit about amsrefs, I did not expect an "easy" way;).

comment Can anyone explain why setting \lineskiplimit breaks align?
OK, I guess I understand: the second one may get discarded, and we might want exactly this. So what should I do if I actually want a negative \lineskiplimit in my document? Any idea?

Thanks, but what sense does it make to \vskip -\lineskiplimit and then \normallineskiplimit!?

comment Creating cobweb diagrams of some functions with tikz/pstrick etc
@MarcvanDongen: lua is a "normal" programming language, and has a "double" float type. Also, Metapost will soon have a reasonable numeric engine.
