one name, different spellings in citations
Europeans! Do you have a 'best practice' for citing authors whose names are spelled differently on the title pages of different works? This is common with researchers from Scandinavia, Russia(-aev, -ayev, -aiev), Germany (ß vs. ss, ue vs. ü), or the Arab world ... I feel like I should normalize the spellings #citationPractices
@ibull Sounds good.
@ibull How do you feel about this went? I've seen a few posts recently about doing something similar and I wonder if it will become a standard thing to do.
I wanted to use the tikz filter with tikz-qtree.sty trees inside figure environments. This filter seems to work:

@drb I assume that it's other staff. They are part of our online student handbook.

@drb My employer does. I don't make my own.
I have written a short post with the details of my setup:
let me know if it need clarification or improvement! 😄
I'm looking for literature (articles, blog posts, books) that covers "succession planning" for IT/sysadmin in activist groups. Like, for a volunteer group, what happens if your IT person just leaves? What are best practices so that the group isn't locked out of their web hosting etc (simply through lack of information rather than malice on the previous IT person's fault)
@cassandreces I went from terrible at public speaking to competent. Also for teaching.
@Cyborgneticz 'That must have taken ages to type.'
