comment What professions use TeX/LaTeX besides CS?
Do a sermon on the size (diameter and circumference etc.) of the bath used at the temple and then you'll have an occasion to reference Pi in there.

comment How do I make a presentation that seems made on an overhead projector?
Now the only thing short is to make it a bit blurry, (because the teacher did not tighten the screw enough, which holds the mirror and it is slowly sliding down while he is talking and explaining...) Hahaha this is nice.

comment Avoid hyphenation ladder effect
@LaRiFaRi I don't know what it does but the effect is that it probably mess about with the kerning etc. so that the following line after your preset amount of hyphenated lines, are not hyphenated. It does not necessarily always look well spaced out, but you at least don't get a 'ladder' effect going for six or seven lines. serif.com/appresources/PPX6/Tutorials/en-gb/help/…

comment Avoid hyphenation ladder effect
@LaRiFaRi I'll accept your answer down below, since I know it's a difficult problem, but I thought it has been addressed in the past perhaps. My other typesetting software like Serif Page Plus can be set to allow only a certain amount of hyphenated lines directly after each other. Anyway your solution is the quickest and cleanest to implement in my script. So thanks.

comment Avoid hyphenation ladder effect
@Mico That was just an example to show the ladder effect. Not an actual case produced by my code. So I was just asking for a very broad general solution.

comment Avoid hyphenation ladder effect
The idea is to allow hyphens, but to reduce them to 3 subsequent ones at the most.

comment Page Numbering: Prime Numbers
For an added bonus why not do it in Mersenne Primes...? It might get tricky if your book is longer than 48 pages... :)

comment TeX family tree with timeline?
I was actually looking for drawing these kinds of graphics in TeX. So don't bother then. Thanks anyway. (I just think that you need to put some of the high-scoring people on TeX.SX on that diagram as well. They are almost a TeX distribution themselves...)
