I was home educated most of my life, I've always been interested in science particularly physics. I went to college for A'levels, then between that and University I did a year-long full time circus course specialising in Acrobatics and Aerial. I did my undergraduate degree at Sheffield, and a summer Nuffield research project on scalar hairy black holes. Now I'm doing a PhD in Quantum Information Theory in Curved Spacetimes. I have a lovely wife, Sascha, we got married May 2010. We like going out, walking, cycling or for a meal and the cinema.

comment What packages do people load by default in LaTeX?
Personally I use an editor which automatically highlights and groups in the "structure" window any comment that begins with %TODO: Works better for me because you don't have anything in your compiled document giving away the fact that it still has TODOs around.

comment How to overlay graphs using includegraphics or pstricks?
Ok, I get it, the ! means do a calculation, and the sub means subtraction. Thanks.

comment How to overlay graphs using includegraphics or pstricks?
To add some background, I generally run my eps files through processing with psfrag / pstricks and anything else to produce a pdf file which can then be directly dropped into a document compiled with pdflatex (and not using any --shell-escape).

This answer is very helpful. I hadn't seen the standalone documentclass before. It also seems to be a very configurable version for what I want to do. Thanks.

comment How to overlay graphs using includegraphics or pstricks?
I don't understand how the coordinates work here. Also, I don't want to live-draw the large graph, I already have the eps file that I want to include.

comment Removing double entries from hyperref's pagebackref
Thanks, I really like this answer. I did modify it so the single back reference read "(page~#2)" because it looked a little strange having just a number and a close bracket by itself on a line. The tilde creates a non-breaking space to prevent this.

comment What are the pros and cons of using hard wrapping, and why is it so common with LaTeX?
I do this too because I version controlled all of my documents with Bazaar.
