comment How does the TeX Live Manager pick mirrors if none is manually specified?
Ah, so we'd need to ask the TeX Live people for that.

Country based? THAT explains a lot. There are only a few Canadian mirrors, and at least one is on the far side of the continent from me.

comment Automatically find fastest CTAN mirror
@cfr Is it supposed to pick a close one? It could be I was just close to a slow one at the time. It is odd though: I was a 40 minute drive from UWaterloo at the time, hard to think another would be closer.

@cfr Because when I was near a university and manually specified a mirror it would go from 2 hours to download a new TeX Live install to under half an hour. Why would I use some random mirror located half a planet away?

@HenriMenke TeXLive Manager will give me a list of mirrors, but I can only guess where they are physically located (which worked fine when I lived down the road from a uni hosting one of them, but now that I'm 4500 km away I get much slower rates from that mirror)

@HenriMenke Wouldn't the fact that is on a different continent from me slow things down some?

comment Superscripts + custom title spacing adding extra space between lines?
Managed to reproduce the problem. It only happens when I have the superscripts following a subtitle. MWE updated.

THERE. Managed to reproduce the problem from my main file in the MWE.

comment Superscripts + custom title spacing adding extra space between lines?
@DavidCarlisle Good point. The problem is in my full document with the \footnotesize removed I still get ....\glue(\lineskip) 1.0, and I can't figure out why. Give me a minute to fiddle with my MWE and try and reproduce it.

That would also make my entire document longer, which is the opposite of what I want. I'm writing to a page limit, and don't like the idea of throwing away space like that.

I was trying to make them smaller with \footnotesize. Opps. How do I make them smaller?

comment Why does this code to condense the bibliography cause it to ignore the DOI=false flag?
This was also helpful as I just noticed that the pages were missing (I was writing in a huge rush to get someone a draft.) This fixed both problems, thank you.

For some reason using this causes it to ignore the doi=false flag. Does anyone have any idea why?

@lockstep Dammit, my googlful is failing me, that is two duplicates in a row.

WHAT? I've been using \texorpdfstring{} this whole time when I could have used pdfencoding=auto? Dammit.

comment What is the proper way to change the section title font in LaTeX?
@SeanAllred I don't use other engines, since then I'll learn features I can't use when submitting to journals. If I only ever use PDFlatex I won't have that problem.
