comment Can't debug init.el
The most likely problem is a forgotten quote, i.e. somewhere in your init.el you've written Synctex when you actually should have written 'Synctex. Another possibility would be that you used a wrong case (ELisp is case sensitive!), that is you've written Synctex when you should have written synctex or maybe SyncTeX). Anyway, the location of the error should be easily found by looking for the string Synctex in your init.el.

comment Implementation of a C compiler in TeX ?
@JosephWright: Classic C compilers did not output binary code, but assembly code, to be fed into an assembler. Since assembly code is pure text, the ability or difficulty to write binary files is not that important.

comment Symbolic coordinates with commas
BTW, I just notice that you have a comma after use comma despite no options following. Maybe it works if you remove that?

comment Symbolic coordinates with commas
I don't seem to have the necessary version installed, so I can't check it, but my guess would be that you just have to enclose the numbers in braces, i.e. symbolic x coords={0,{1,5},{1,3}}

comment Intersection of lines to draw a convex function
Note that in mathematics, that one is called a concave function. It's confusing, but that's what it is.

comment How do you swap the commands for two symbols?
@egreg: Never say never. An obvious example of using both in the same document is a document explaining the difference between \phi and \varphi.

comment Setting up your own LaTeX compile server?
To your third issue: No, you don't need that. Of course you may desire it, but that's something different. All you really need is the ability to edit plain text files.

comment What professions use TeX/LaTeX besides CS?
Literate programming has its own file format which is run through two different programs for generating program source code and LaTeX source code. For the original literate programming tool (called Web — that was before the rise of the WWW — and written by Donald E. Knuth himself) those programs are called tangle and weave. Note that TeX itself was written as literate program.

comment Format numbers as a fraction of pi with tikz \pgfmathprintnumber
If your denominators are always small, you could do something like multiplying with 2520, rounding to the nearest integer, and dividing by 2520 again (in the hope that this doesn't introduce new rounding errors). Note that 2520 is the least common multiple of the numbers 1 to 10; thus this will not work e.g. for pi/11 (but it could work for pi/12, because 12 divides 2520). I don't know if/how this is possible with pgf, however.

comment What's the proper way to write a vector with a single character subscript?
@DavidCarlisle: For vector components, you wouldn't write the vector arrow (vector arrows work like Perl 5 sigils in that respect).
