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

comment Biber error after MiKTeX update
@dgs: You need a file archiver that can handle LZMA compressed files, e.g. 7-Zip or PeaZip. Why you shouldn’t install in main installation: See Purpose of local texmf trees.

comment Biber error after MiKTeX update
@dgs: 1) When you open the MiKTeX settings you will see under the General tab a button “Refresh FNDB”. 2) Please, do not install into main MiKTeX installation, cf. Install Biber in MiKTeX on a 64-bit version of Windows and linked answers and comments.

comment HTTP Error when trying to change repository
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about an issue that appears to be temporary and localized, and hence cannot be retraced by others.

comment HTTP Error when trying to change repository
I do not observe problems from here. Before you continue delete the DNS cache (on Command Prompt: ipconfig /flush) and try again … Look on MiKTeX Package Repositories, whether the selected repositories are available and up to date … Perhaps just MiKTeX.org itself was unreachable, cf. my answer MiKTeX: connect failed in tcp_connect.

comment producing embossed tactile graphics with Tikz for a student who is blind
“code is from Andrew Stacey”: Would be fine, if you’d add a link to Andrew’s answer (I suspect you used code from an answer here on TeX.sx) – copy the link hidden behind the word “share” below his answer, and you will get a personalized short link version (the numbers after last slash are your user id).

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.)

comment openany for hepthesis
@cfr: Where is this recommended? And perhaps hree in TeX.sx we should intentionally choose english? I would otherwise prefer to choose "German English". ;-)
