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.

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.

comment What are the most common mistakes that beginners of (La)TeX and Friends make?
I think this is true in particular for users of Tex Stack Exchange. For others, perhaps not so much.

What's wrong with writing \"u, \aa, etc.? Does it produce an incorrect result?

Can you elaborate on point 8? When/why/how should I capitalise BibTeX titles — doesn't bibtex/biber take care of capitalisation?

comment Komascript style for empty page after page with `\part` title, or how to get page numbers there cleanly
I want a page number even on otherwise empty pages, because for me, a page number does not only serve as an anchor for the same page, but also assists when a reader is looking for a particular page number. When I'm browsing looking for page 16, and pages 14 and 18 are empty without any page numbers, that could make it a little bit more involved to find page 16.
