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.

And what if I want to increase the spacing of only one row? (And yes, this is sometimes justified IMHO.)

comment What are the ways to position things absolutely on the page?
@Aditya: I know, I even used them once or twice;). But for this big-list question to be useful for newbies, could you provide an example?

comment deleting the address item from a bibliography style
Please use biblatex, not BibTeX. BibTeX is old, unsupported and creates more problems than it solves (as you've already noticed). Every time someone uses BibTeX, an innocent child learns to read from a book set in Comic Sans.

comment “Undefined control sequence” on auto-generated tex files
You should really use pdflatex. What TeX distribution do you have? How did you install it? It should be in the same place as pdftex...

thanks. Of course, if I use memoir, I'll look into its docs;).

Ha! I guess that I've just lost the right to ask anyone having LaTeX problems "Did you look at the log file?" ;)

Thanks! I decided to accept @pst's answer below because it's more "lightweight", and addresses a more general issue - even though I may use your suggestion instead.
