(La)TeX is user-friendly. It's just that it choses its friends with care.

comment Combine shorten and bend option in TikZ
I'm not very sure I understood your problem correctly. It it that when shortened, your arcs will be less like circular arcs, but you would like to preserve it?

comment Is there an easy way to add hover text to all incidents of math mode where the hover text would contain the LaTeX code?
+1: I really am happy to see any efforts directed towards improving accessibility. I am working in the field and at the time being the support for screen readers, etc. is paltry. It is a real shame, because it is not a question of missing technology, but simply of good-will...

comment Chinese checkers board using TikZ
@cmhughes: I don't think that would really work. The circles are not in the corners/vertices of a square matrix, they are aligned along triangles.

comment Force upright Greek letters with isomath
I'm sorry if I could not give a satisfactory answer. Maybe you can define a new command: \newcommand{\upGamma}{\mathrm{\Gamma}}. Otherwise you need to change the fonts, as @egreg did in his answer. I'm afraid I don't have the skills to propose anything more 'general' that could substitute e.g. \Gamma with \mathrm{\Gamma}. (\renewcommand obviously doesn't work here.)

comment Starting a PhD; Any guides to setting up a 'system'?
I can only speak for myself, as I am in the process of writing my own thesis. I try to keep everything broken down into separate files (sections and figures alike) and read some guidelines already posted here, on TeX.SX. I am awaiting your guide, could be really useful! I think it's a bold idea and wish you good luck! :)
