Interesting reading on the dangers of corporate research labs.

I’ve been writing LaTeX lately as god^Wknuth intended it, choke full of mathematical goodness. The output is beautiful.

1. I wonder if the author actually intended to write “panty raid” or if that is a Freudian slip!

• Since it’s a quote, one hopes it’s accurate.

2. One thing I discovered when I was playing with TeX and LaTeX is that there is a big gap between what it gives you by default and what it takes to get the beautifully fitted pages you see in Knuth’s books.

• My old resume started with this prolog:

\hoffset=-0.25in
\nopagenumbers
\def\br{\hfill\break}
\parindent0pt
\parskip0.5\baselineskip plus 1pt minus 1pt

\def\section#1{\penalty-2000\vskip0.5\baselineskip{\bf #1}\par\penalty10000}
\newbox\leftbox
\def\inset#1{\noalign{\ipar{#1}}}
\def\idt#1\par{\par\penalty1000{\ipar{#1}\par}}

\vskip\parskip
