10/25   LaTeX question: How do I scale a tabular envornment or a table to
        an arbitrary height and width? Using \resizebox seems to work if
        one of the dimensions is !, but it doesn't seem to work right if
        I specify both dimensions. Thanks in advance.
        \_ Explain more? "Resize"? Smaller/larger? Scale what's inside?
           Put more white space in?

7/13    Painful .pdf conversion question deleted by op.  I've decided to just
        be a man and edit the LaTex code the way I should have done in the
        first place.  Thanks to those who attempted to help.

7/13    I have about 80 .pdf graphics files, that are a mix of vector graphics
        and bitmaps, and I want to convert them all to bitmap of a specified
        resolution, while preserving the physical size of the original image.
        Does anyone have any suggestions for how to do this fast and
        efficiently?  I have access to the full Adobe suite if that makes any
        difference.  thanks.

5/20    Is there a format that's a "cross" between a wordprocessor
        (e.g. Word) and LaTeX? I want something that's higher quality
        than Word but a little easier to work with than LaTeX.
        \_ lyx?  gui frontend to LaTeX
        \_ You might like TeXMacs .

12/8    How do I make a non-italicized greek letter in Latex?
        \_ If you use them as mathematical characters, they're
           always variables. (I know this doesn't help much.)
        \_ Thanks to the person who nuked my reply. Most fonts probably
           do not have non-italic Greek, and most LaTeX packages probably
           don't support non-italic Greek. You need a font that has glyphs

11/15   What's a good freeware tool to draw network diagrams with? I used
        to use Visio years ago. I just need to do this once, so I don't
        want to buy a package. I have Powerpoint. Can it do it? Xfig is
        a little primitive? Anything else? Can be UNIX, Mac, or Windows-based.
        \_ OpenOffice has a drawing tool that is pretty lame but
           functional.  -tom

11/10   Which chat program is the most popular these days?  AOL IM?  Yahoo
        Messenger?  ICQ?  I'm trying to sign up for one.  Thx.
        \_ AIM in USA, MSN for rest of the world.  Don't bother with ICQ,
           as the protocol is merging with AIM anyway.  If I were you, I
           get account in both AIM and MSN and use GAIM/Adium/Trillian as

10/5    After years of using latex without bibtex, I have finally started using
        bibtex, and find that I had been leading a shallow, incomplete life.
        Save yourself from a meaningless life, and start using bibtex now.
        \_ Not all latex leads to shallow, incomplete life.  Many people enjoy
           deep, complete life with latex such as Trojan Magnum XL.
        \_ You don't always have to settle with a shallow life while using
