I have been working with LaTeX since about thirteen years and enjoy the simple beauty of the generated documents.

My interests lie in the creation of documentations and the automation of typesetting. Some of my German & English articles can be found here: http://uweziegenhagen.de/?page_id=159

I am member and board member of Dante e.V. (http://www.dante.de), the German-speaking TeX/LaTeX users group and contribute regularly to Dante's magazine, the "Die TeXnische Komödie".

comment Lecture notes that include my slides
There are several ways to do this. Beamer for example allow to create lecture notes and slides in one file, see uweziegenhagen.de/?p=1053 for a German example. You could also extract the pages from the PDF using for instance pdftk and embed them in a different document.

I have my own virtual server for subversion. All important projects are in a subversion repo. In addition to the server I have most projects checked out regularly on several computers.

comment beamer encapsulating video
are you sure they will be able to play the video on the computer you will be presenting from? with the movie15 package embedding a video should work, however I had severe trouble every time I tried. If you will present from your own computer, I'd leave the video out.

comment Using TikZ to draw a water channel profile
Why don't you just draw it in Inkscape and export it to TikZ? I guess it shouln't take more than half an hour.

comment Label(s) may have changed run pdflatex
I guess without any external tool it is not possible. You need an external tool to check if the log file contains the magic words.
