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".

If you want to contact me, the best way is to use the contact form at www.uweziegenhagen.de

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.

comment Getting data dynamically into LaTeX from a spreadsheet
I have successfully used Python with the xlrd Module. In one of the latest copies of the "TeXnische Komödie" you can find the article. If you are no DANTE e.V. member, then a) write me an email and b) consider to join to support TeX/LaTeX :-)

comment attachfile does not work inside captions
It works fine with pdflatex, with xelatex I noticed also that the red box around the link in the list of figures is also reaching down to the bottom of the document. There is also another attachment (HTML?) which is not present if I compile using pdflatex.

comment “Smart commenting” in LaTeX
What you could do as well is to use the attachfilepackage to attach additional PDF files to the main file. I use this feature to add the TeX code of my documents to the PDF container file to have source and result in one file.

comment “Smart commenting” in LaTeX
What I did not get from your request: You have slides in the lecture, right? And there is a notes file for each lecture. The slides have the detailed proofs, the notes not? For the beamer package one can create a combined file, which generates notes and slides in one document. I once created a German article in my blog: uweziegenhagen.de/?p=1053

Is there a specific reason not to use a newer version of TeX Live? 2011 is pretty old.
