Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
LaTeX Problems (the typesetting program not the condom)
Hey all. I use LaTeX to write all of my mathematical documents (i.e. quizzes, tests or research papers) and I've run into some very strange problems with it recently.
Lately, every latex document I've ever written looks strangely different, as if someone edited them, changed the font, and made it look terrible. Symbols (i.e. union, intersection, summation symbols) are completely removed, and greek letters don't resemble anything like they should. Its really very strange. Even latex documents created by other people and posted online look that way. For example, a .pdf file giving the solutions for a class I referenced online all last semester now looks as terrible as all the documents I've ever created now look. Why should a document, who's content I've never touched, now look so horrible?
I think it might be a font problem, but I have no idea how to fix it. I'm using a Macbook btw, 10.5.6 if that helps. I went ahead and deleted all the Tex Files from the Library folder, and am trying to download the MacTex .dmg file, but that's taking forever (only 27 more days until download complete ). At this point, reinstalling once I get the .dmg file is my last idea, but I'd be eternally grateful if someone can figure out whats going on.
