@BAYMAX -- This is the same syntax used for \chapter, \section, etc. There was intention in the design to be consistent.

Flash!!! TUG meeting schedule is up: tug.org/tug2021/sched.html It needs a bit of cleanup editing, and it isn't yet linked from the meeting home page, but everything is there and I think the times are correct. You can let me know if you have any questions and I'll pass them on.

@barbarabeeton @DavidCarlisle @barbarabeeton Aha, so pastime is sth. like an old word for hobby.
@DavidCarlisle @barbarabeeton I remember: There is a phrase that reads "To sly the time dead" = "Killing the time" ("Die Zeit totschlagen").
Something like that often comes from English (or French) and is adapted in German.

2:27 AM
@barbarabeeton do we need to register t oattend them?

@cis In Italian, too. We say "ammazzare il tempo".
@barbarabeeton Thank you, Barbara! It didn't occur to me :)

@BAYMAX well as the error say, you are using an \pdfendlink after a par, but as you don't show a minimal example ....

@barbarabeeton Nice! Will the video be visible later? I am really interested in Mathias Magdowski's speech, but at that moment I will be hopefully hiking (well, having breakfast could be) in the southern Alps...

9:05 AM
@BAYMAX If you leave the https:// at the beginning it creates a link which people can click on.

9:17 AM
@MarcelKrüger I forgot to thank you for your help with the Lua thing. So thank you. Also thank you to @TeXnician for the explanation and example code.

@CarLaTeX @DavidCarlisle @barbarabeeton

In wiktionary only the German meaning is entered.
https://de.wiktionary.org/wiki/die_Zeit_totschlagen

I tried to translate the text from a phrase dictionary:

"Zeitvertreib" / pass the time / exile or chase away the time:
colloquial; the term "pastime" was first invented in the 18th century, but sports, games and entertainment were of course not unknown to the rich and noble even before that.
The picture / phrase means that you can exile the "person" named time; or kill him/her so that they no longer bother you with their presence.

@cis -- "Kill time" is a common English expression. Regarding "sly", I think you mean "slay"; that should be understood by a native English speaker, but sounds very strange. (The usual victim of slaying is a dragon; however, I'm of the opinion that dragons are too often misunderstood, and should usually be given the benefit of the doubt.)
@BAYMAX -- If you want to attend using the zoom link, you have to register. It;s my understanding that most sessions will also be viewable via a youtube channel.
@Rmano -- Most sessions should be viewable later on the youtube archive. In the past, a few speakers have not allowed their sessions to be posted for later viewing; that information isn't settled yet. Posting on youtube may take a few days. (Most of last year's sessions are linked from the 2021 meeting home page.)

@barbarabeeton Thanks. Anyway I suppose that there will be a special issue with the papers... I can wait.

2:58 PM
@Rmano -- Not all papers make it into print; some appear only as abstracts. And a very few are available only live, so if you really must hear a talk, it's best to watch it live within the meeting schedule. (That is why I really prefer and value in-person meetings. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will be possible next year.)

3:42 PM
@barbarabeeton I'd love to go back to in-person meetings, too. I feel that too much is lost in video. And I am sure my students learn a lot less when remotely connected...

4:35 PM
ctan.org/pkg/eforms isn't part of TeX Live for some reason. Licensing issues?

5:09 PM
@FaheemMitha Correct

5:22 PM
@MarcelKrüger ^^ :)

@PauloCereda don't tell @UlrikeFischer

@DavidCarlisle I don't need such tricks to get the blame.

@DavidCarlisle ooh a secret

@PauloCereda 11004

@DavidCarlisle ooh

5:32 PM
@PauloCereda dinner

@DavidCarlisle oh no

6:08 PM
@JosephWright -- The title of your talk on the TUG meeting schedule is a placeholder. Please send in a real title. Thanks.

6:37 PM
@barbarabeeton Any colo(u)r you like

@JosephWright -- Thanks. Communicated.

Good evening to every body.
@UlrikeFischer Hi, do you have seen my question on feynmp?
0

Strangely today I wanted to create a graph with feynmf/feynmp package but taking for example the @egreg's answers here I not see nothing (I compile with TeXworks). Does this anomaly happen only to me? First code: \documentclass[11pt]{article} \usepackage{feynmp-auto} \begin{document} \begin{fmf...

@UlrikeFischer I have done many attemps but without a solution. :-( For my opinion there is anything for the recent updates: I have upload this morning MikTeX.

6:56 PM
@barbarabeeton Cool

@Sebastiano well it looks as if --shell-escape is required now. Or call mpost manually.

7:45 PM
With pdfLaTeX I can do \language\l@latin to change hyphenation patterns, but in LuaLaTeX only \l@english seems to be predefined. Anyone knows how can I change hyphenation patterns in LuaLaTeX (without babel loaded)?

7:58 PM
@PhelypeOleinik Er, hyphenation patterns are loaded dynamically, so it's entirely different
@PhelypeOleinik But 'read babel' would be my plan

@JosephWright I feared that much :)
@JosephWright I'm changing hyphenation patterns for lipsum but I don't want to require babel for that

@PhelypeOleinik That sounds .. silly
@PhelypeOleinik babel is a required package for LaTeX

@JosephWright Yeah, I know (and I myself would use babel), but I don't want to require babel just for dummy text
@JosephWright Plus, people will have all sorts of option clash errors if I do that

@PhelypeOleinik Like I said, it's required: you can (should) assume it's always available with a working LaTeX setup
@PhelypeOleinik I'd sort out a suitable warning or similar \AtBeginDocument if that's the concern: honestly I wouldn't mess around with internals here

@JosephWright Hm... Require babel for hyphenation patterns but not explicitly load it... Sounds better

8:06 PM
@PhelypeOleinik Yes, exactly

@JosephWright What I really didn't want was a \RequirePackage{babel} line in the package “only” for hyphenation patterns
@JosephWright But that sounds better indeed. Thanks

@samcarter_looks_forward_TUG'21 github.com/josephwright/siunitx/releases/tag/v3.0.23 ....

@PhelypeOleinik last time I looked (which is around 5 years ago ...) one could do it like this:
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[base]{babel}

\textwidth=0.5cm
\begin{document}
\makeatletter\bbl@patterns@lua{ngerman}\makeatother
Minister Minister
\end{document}

@UlrikeFischer Uses an internal interface ....

@JosephWright at the time Javier said it is the official method tug.org/pipermail/luatex/2016-March/005778.html, but I think it would be better to ask him if there has been some updates.

8:20 PM
@UlrikeFischer Ooh, [base]{babel} allows reloading! I didn't know that

@PhelypeOleinik That would be good - but perhaps mention to Frank ;)
@UlrikeFischer Ah: sounds pretty internal to me ...
Everyone drafted their TUG talks?

8:43 PM
@JosephWright Party is getting closer :) I'll bring the balloons and cake!

8:56 PM
@UlrikeFischer Dearest Ulrike I do not know what is --shell escape. I not am able to to satisfy your request :-( to call back mpost manually.
@JosephWright Hi dearest...I not see your message that I have received. Is it related with my question?

@Sebastiano Sorry, was meant for someone else
