how to move keynote from one mac to another

See:

http://geekinc.ca/moving-iwork-pages-keynote-and-numbers-from-an-old-apple-to-a-new-one/
I basically moved the following files:

  • Macintosh HD:Library:Preferences:com.apple.iWork09.Installer.plist
  • Macintosh HD:Library:Preferences:com.apple.iWork09.plist 
  •  Macintosh HD:Library:Application Support:Keynote
  • Macintosh HD:Library:Application Support:iWork ’09
  • Macintosh HD:Applications:iWork ’09

My New Project: Show Me the Math

Please join me in celebrating the launch of my new project "Show Me the Math", a journal purely dedicated to mathematical derivations of physical and numerical stuff. I will no longer post derivations on pleasemakeanote as those will go to showmethemath. I will start porting and improving the current derivations to the new blog as time goes by.

Thank you all for your support,
yNot

latex2html Underline Equations and Formulas

I recently tried to use latex2html to export a few of my tex documents to html. I simply used
latex2html main.tex
but I ended up with a bunch of unsavory lines under all of my equations. Upon googling things a bit, I found the following solution that worked for me:
https://ccrma.stanford.edu/~jos/webpub/Eliminating_Black_Rules_Equation.html
On my mac, here's what I did:

  1. search for the file alt-rule.pro (on my Mac, I opened the folder /usr and searched for it there. the file was located under: /usr/local/texlive/2012/texmf/dvips/config/
  2. edit the file as suggested by the link above. i.e., replace
    gsave newpath   /ruleY X /ruleX X
    with
    gsave newpath
    transform round exch round exch itransform
    /ruleY X /ruleX X
and Voila!
