I'm a Post-Doctoral Fellow in atmospheric remote sensing at the University of Toronto in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I first came to Stack Exchange for practical reasons: Tex.SE has been of major help when I wrote my licentiate (midterm) thesis. Since then, I have discovered the joy of many websites. As my network profile will show, I'm interested in travel, outdoor, scientific skepticism, and as I work in academia, also in academia and LaTeX.

comment How do I get numbered entries in a beamer bibliography
When using biblatex+biber, karlkoellers answer results in all items labelled [0], but @GonzaloMedina's answer works correctly.

Immediately voting to close my own question as a duplicate — only after writing the full question did Stack Exchange suggest a similar question containing the answer, but this 'path' may still be useful for future answer-seekers.

comment Should one cite a LaTeX package in a scientific publication?
@Fran I disagree. Why must R be cited for reproducibility? Taking the same code with the same parameters and the same bugs is not properly reproducing. Describe the mathematics, and whether the maths is implemented in R, Matlab, Python, or your grandfathers abacus, is an irrelevant or potentially dangerous detail. I will acknowledge my tools, but in the acknowledgements, not in the methodology. We used function x in package y is not a scientific way to describe a methodology. But this discussion is off-topic on TeX - LaTeX and belongs on Academia.

That one is from 2010-10-25. Is that really the latest?

comment Simplify LaTeX document to satisfy editing office
Well, they weren't specific about what problems they had with the packages. They do not forbid packages overall... I've removed by '\newcommand' issues (which was easy by text-and-replace) and hope it will be fine now, or I should ask for details.
