@PeterGrill that's probably the first tikz I've posted that isn't just copied from the question with an \expandafter added :-)
@DavidCarlisle :-) I think that was a bit more than just an \expandafter.
@PeterGrill I don't think @cfr likes it much (her question isn't very explicit though:-)
@DavidCarlisle It does the job. Now that you are getting into TikZ, I hope you won't start using \tikzmark!!! Otherwise I won't have anything left to gain easy rep with!! :-)
@PeterGrill I have 20 answers to think of, before I get the badge that @egreg assures me that I deserve
@PeterGrill (they don't need to be right, or involve tikz, picture mode will still be acceptable of course!)
@DavidCarlisle Wow!! You are that close to a tikz badge?
7:18 AM
@PeterGrill He's stil that far! But we know @DavidCarlisle is lazy.
@egreg :-)
@PeterGrill I may be answering tikz questions, but some things never change, the regulars here are still rude about me
@DavidCarlisle Only those that think they are in your league.
@DavidCarlisle Except of course when you post a picture mode solution. Then you deserve it!!
@PeterGrill I assume you mean I deserve the rep!
:-) Yeah, the rep. :-)

@DavidCarlisle Give rep to the poor!
10:32 AM
@yo' He has much undeserved rep to give!
10:48 AM
Hm, just using \usepackage{tgcursor} seems to also change font of headings.

11:55 AM
@wilx yes looking at it it changes the meaning of all bold face. Wrong really
@wilx it has \renewcommand\bfdefault{b} so you can put that back as \renewcommand\bfdefault{bx} after loading the package
@DavidCarlisle Thank you. This does help. Is this fixable or is this what we have to live with because of compatibility? :)
Q: Context free LaTex

choegerApparently, Parsing TeX is Turing-complete. I however, do not write TeX but LaTeX. In that process, I profit from assistance by editor plugins like Auctex et.al. These plugins rely on a syntactic model of my writing (hence, they need to parse it). I assume they could be confused by running certai...

@DavidCarlisle ^^^ Someone suspects I'm a mole, I think!
@JosephWright :-)
@wilx I think the package is just wrong, you could ask that they change it (if the tt font needs b not bx (bold not bold extended) that can be done with a substitution in the fd files just for that font without changing the default behaviour of \bfseries
12:25 PM
@DavidCarlisle OK, I have sent and email to listed maintainers of the package.
I thought 1996 was modern not old fashioned.
Q: How to create old-fashion scientific diagrams using TikZ?

WDCI would like to reproduce following scientific diagram in a 1996 paper. My questions: (a) How did the author create such a figure? What software did he possibly used? (b) Is it possible to do it using TikZ? If so, what is the general routine? I appreciate your helps.

1:21 PM
@DavidCarlisle :)
@DavidCarlisle Probably right at the end of the era where academic departments might have an 'expert' on drawing stuff (we still had someone when I started my degree in 1995)

2:43 PM
Could someone quickly and kindly remind me how to access the bottom left corners of a pgfplot figure, so that I can place there the subcaption label (a)?
2:58 PM
@UlrikeFischer I'm afraid I got nothing back on that listings bug
@JosephWright Do you have a copy? I could try to poke him -- he lives in my city.
@UlrikeFischer Doesn't look like it: I know I sent it but tend not to keep such things
@JosephWright Well the problem is "the easy fix". I don't have the time to write it and run tests (is the lccode also changed in the document?), but chances for correction are higher with complete code.
3:16 PM
@UlrikeFischer Current set up is definitely wrong: it's using the \lccode trick to define active chars but not resetting correctly at the end of the alphabet
3:46 PM
@DavidCarlisle I know this will not come as a surprise, but you answers are more "underrated" then @egreg: tex.stackexchange.com/tools/post-feedback/underrated?filter=all
I think it is proof that he is stealing your votes and green ticks.
4:18 PM
@StrongBad he probably did the downvote I got today as well.
1 hour later…
5:40 PM
@StrongBad How does that work?
5:51 PM
@JosephWright no idea. The link to it was apparently taken away a few years ago, but they left the functionality (or non-functionality) in place.
6:19 PM
6:47 PM
I am in a hurry these days, friends. Sorry for the absence in the chatroom. :(
7:32 PM
@PauloCereda Busy on page 2?
@PauloCereda A suggestion: \tableofcontents
8:20 PM
@PauloCereda no worries!
8:52 PM
@yo' Maybe now he's busy on page 3.

10:07 PM
@DavidCarlisle I had a spare vote, so I fixed the situation. It gives you 8, I can live with it. The spread is still increasing. ;-)
@egreg thanks:-) looks like I wont get rep cap today (been out until now) so no more palindromes for a while:-)
@DavidCarlisle On the other hand, I'd prefer that you started your answer with "Why on earth would you want \hline after each row?”
@egreg because a simple \hline is so dull and you ought to use a full colour \hhline ?
