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.

@KonradRudolph Any chance your CV without any template turns into a nice successor class for the community to use? ;)

comment \includepdfmerge starting new documents on right side page
@AndrewSwann That's what I ended up doing in practice (it was small enough to do by hand), question is if I can do that in LaTeX by passing appropriate commands.

comment Underline different authors in the bibliography by hacking BST file
Note that underlining is not a very nice typographical style; we might use it in hand-written text because we can't do bold or italic, but you might want to try other styles (e.g. italic) and see if they look better than underlining.

comment How to suppress page 13?
+1 for the triskaidephobia tag, that unfortunately might not survive automatic purges of single-use tags.

comment generate simple cylindrical shape with text in latex (tikz)
Could you describe more specifically what exactly your question is? As it stands now, it looks a bit like a "please solve my problem" question unlikely to be helpful to future visitors. If you continue working through the manual, you will find out how to draw a diagram like this one (it's not very complicated).

comment Is it possible to change the size of an arrowhead in TikZ/PGF?
Excellent answer. Maybe you could submit it as a patch to tikz? Should be quite useful! BTW, also illustrates why one normally shouldn't touch the default arrowhead sizes... (-;

comment Best option to create vector graphics with LaTeX labels
Well, see my 'P.S'; you can still use a hybrid solution, for example, you could create the complicated parts with external software, but write the text labels with tikz

comment Outsourcing TikZ code
Yes, I meant \includegraphics. It's been a while since I used \includegraphics (I use tikz and particularly pgfplots nowadays ;-) so I got confused :). Thanks for the explanation on \includestandalone.
