comment Holiday contest! Drawing a picture of Krampus for Yule
Exactly. I was expecting lots of entries, I just wanted to see what could be done without it. Did you design this yourself or base it off another image?

I don't think the one on the bottom is a scientifically accurate snowflake, just saying.

I tried that, without luck, and then just gave up and left them in the natural order, which should be roughly by date published due to how I ad them.

I print out literature lists with \nocite{*}, so it would be nice to be able to organize them, and I do the bib files by hand. Too bad.

So what if I want it sorted by say, journal or date of publication? Is that possible?

It seems there are some problems with the way I posted, the backports, so you are probably better off going with the second link and installing a 'vanilla' install.

comment How to install “vanilla” TeXLive on Debian or Ubuntu?
@texenthusiast Ah, I didn't know that. Looking at the changelog once you get the newest version of ubuntu they are keeping the package up to date at least. Should I delete my answer?

comment Crawler Resistance Email Address
Why not use something like inkscape to make an SVG or Postscript image of your email, then insert that? It would be a vector graphic, and thus no pixilation, but still be an image.
