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

revised \widetilde is too big and \tilde is too small — is there something between?
Added alternative from comments at request of question author.

comment TikZ: What affects the space between nodes placed with `below of=` syntax?
You can adjust this with inner sep and outer sep (the space added within and outside the border, respectively) or by setting a minimum width or minimum height, depending on the effect you're looking for.

comment What's the name of this timeline package in LaTeX?
+1 especially for texdoc - how did I not know about this wonderful utility?!

comment pgfplots and figure centering
oh, I see - yes, this is a better way of demonstrating the centering than artificially broadening the y-axis label and needing to show the page margins. Thanks! Incidentally, although this is marked as experimental in the pgfplots manual, that refers to pgf 2.00: the relevant code has been incorporated into pgf 2.10 so it should be pretty generally usable, I think.

comment Print a single page multiple times, counting up the page number
I think the problem is that you're using an older version of pgf - try upgrading to 2.10 (which is installed in TeX Live 2011 if you feel like upgrading the whole thing, or just get the package from ctan).

comment Print a single page multiple times, counting up the page number
Very clever \pgfmathprintnumber hack there to get the leading zeroes! I considered using it but concluded it couldn't do what was needed here - didn't even think of something like this.

comment PGFplot Dimension too large/TeX Capacity Exceeded after reduction in domain and range
But the calculations are done before they are scaled to the current graph, so this won't have any effect on the errors.

comment Is there a macro which determines whether or not a command will produce printable output?
The distinction between commands with and without arguments is not equivalent to that between those that write to the output document and those that do not - consider \textit vs \itshape and all the analogous font-changing commands for example.
