I'm a condensed matter physicist who, despite a decade's experience with LaTeX, still has an awful lot of TeXnical details to learn.

True! I guess the best thing to do in that case is explicitly save the old secnumformat and restore it afterwards. I'll edit to suggest this.

(+1) Snap! And thanks for showing how to use \normalbaselineskip -- I was sure there was a command like that but couldn't remember what it was...

comment LaTeX stopped building a BibTeX bibliography, how to troubleshoot it?
I'm afraid I don't use TexmakerX so don't know what "Quick build" does, but from the command line the workflow would be latex to generate an aux file, then bibtex to generate the bbl, and then latex again (possibly twice to be safe in case adding the reference text changed page numbers etc.). Does this work? If not perhaps you could edit your question to show at which stage this process fails.

comment LaTeX stopped building a BibTeX bibliography, how to troubleshoot it?
Apologies if this is obvious, but are you actually running BibTeX between LaTeX runs? It looks like your new references are not making it into the .bbl file, which is BibTeX's job.

comment How to combine a timeline with a calendar
You could potentially add an xshift=-10pt or similar in there too, if you want the bottom of the rotated text to line up with the bottom of the "Date: " text.

Does title label anchor={anchor=base west, rotate=90} do what you want?

comment How to combine a timeline with a calendar
center seems to work for me provided the timeline fits on the page. But I'm afraid automatically breaking a plot doesn't appear to be trivial. (You might like to pose this as a separate question, since it's quite a different issue: I will have a go if I get a chance, and no doubt so will others!) However, you can squeeze quite a lot more on one page by setting title label anchor={rotate=90} and decreasing x: e.g., I can fit five weeks happily on an A4 page this way using x=4mm and \scriptsize font.
