As you can assume, English is not my natural language. Apologies in advance, if it is bad and poor, and please be indulgent.

comment producing embossed tactile graphics with Tikz for a student who is blind
How do you switch between the two fonts? Just as a hint: You can do this in TeX flavours quite easily with an if clause which you could set in the very beginning of your document and what you could so change very simple depending of the font you want to have activated.

comment Fill opacity problem with pdflatex while upgrading MiKTeX from version 2.7 to 2.9
Ernesto, this issue is very, very probably not related to MiKTeX itself, but to the fact that in MiKTeX 2.7 you necessarily have older package versions of pgf/TikZ and PSTricks & co.

comment openany for hepthesis
@cfr: The part with German was fun … my English flavour is German … kantlipsum is English only, but blindtext is programmed by a German and has, of course, a German version. (“Blindtext“ is actually the German word for dummy text.)

In additon to Torbjoern: KOMA-Script does only know compatibility options a4paper and a5paper (and some more), but no according option for A6 format.

Link only answers are discouraged here. Also we try to add self-contained answers. Hence it would be much appreciated, if you’d enhance your answer: What part of the linked blog post did help you and how did you set up your system?
