Angelika Kratzer is giving a lecture series at UCL:
one name, different spellings in citations Show more
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
pandoc, github Show more
I wanted to use the tikz filter with tikz-qtree.sty trees inside figure environments. This filter seems to work:
Mastodon admin help request; Boosts++ Show more
I'm periodically having people email me to say that confirmation emails aren't going through
Does anyone have good ideas on how to diagnose / fix this sort of problem?
It has mostly been people with Hotmail / Outlook addresses
(But then I'm pretty sure that we've had successful signups from those domains too, so I'm not sure)
tech request: online collaborative note-taking (etherpad alternatives?) Show more
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)
peer review Show more
I have just been asked to review something that I reviewed before at another journal. A diff suggests that the paper is identical. My report will be too, I think. I'm not convinced that this is working.
Argentina Show more
I will be visiting Buenos Aires in May. What should I see?
Thoughts on VPNs?? Show more
I've been considering a VPN & have got a headache researching them. I know that I should NOT trust free VPNs, but even among paid services, things are murky. So far, VyperVPN, ExpressVPN are at the top of my list. Does anyone have any thoughts, recommendations, warnings they like to share?
