comment Document using datatool is slow to compile
Without impugning datatool in any way, it is surely advisable to pre-sort your 'data' before feeding it to your .tex file. There are many tools....

comment How to typeset your own UNIQUE language (e.g., Lord of the Rings Elvish in LaTeX)?
Further down the road, you'd need to worry about how your language gets hyphenated. See, e.g., this question.

comment In-line citation using cross-referenced bibliography
I don't know LyX, but doesn't it (too) rely on a .bib database for citations and bibliographies?

comment Is there a LaTeX wrapper for use in Google Docs?
A little more information would be nice. If I click on the LaTeX link at the end of your link, I'm suddenly being asked to grant permission to a third-party add-on. It would be nice to know more before signing up for something....

comment Where to place .bib file when saving many documents in dropbox
You could symlink the file in Dropbox to a place that is already in the search path. For me that would be in `~/texmf/bibtex/bib/. Thus, although the file there is the one being used, you only need to update the file in Dropbox.

comment Creating separate pdf file containing the bibliography
No problem. When I was still sure --jobname would get the job done, I liked the answer more. I thought about a Makefile that would then mv the file back into the working directory, but it started to feel like a Rube Goldberg machine....

comment spaces in font names
You cannot update TeX Live 2013 any further. The current release is TeX Live 2014, and you can't directly upgrade from 2013 to 2014 (or, later this year, to 2015). You must reinstall TeX Live each year if you want to have access to tlmgr. Alternatively, you can update things manually. If your needs are simple, this is not too onerous. (I used to do this.)

comment Insert something “Before the end of document”
Probably a bad idea in many ways, but what about \usepackage{etoolbox} and then \preto\enddocument{\nameofcompany\par}?

comment How to define XeLaTeX in special font
I don't have Helvetica; and I know what the unicode value is (because I linked to it in my first comment). But you didn't answer my question. If you plan on writing a macro rather than the character directly, the solution is easy: \newfontfamily\specialfont{Helvetica-BoldOblique} and \def\mydag{{\specialfont †}} or \def\altmydag{{\specialfont \char"2020}}. But note your Helvetica font (which I can't test) needs to have this character in its set.

Do you want to be writing '\dagger' in your file, or using the unicode ?

comment Why am I unable to use BibLaTeX?
Note that biber and biblatex versions need to match. It looks like you have version 1.6 of biber; that means you need to be using version 2.6 of biblatex (checkable by adding \listfiles to your .tex file, running latex, then looking at the list of files appended to the end of the .log file).

comment Why am I unable to use BibLaTeX?
Hmm, if you want to test biber itself, you need to work from the command line. You can grab the two test files from here, put them in a directory and run biber from the same directory as follows: biber --validate_control --convert_control test
