Here are some tutorials and tips and tricks on various topics. Much of this consists of information that I needed at some point in time. I started writing short notes to myself so I would remember in case I needed the information again. I am slowly writing them up into refined tutorials and posting them on this website since I suspect that they can be useful for other people as well.

Research & Technical

These are some tutorials on technical topics that may be of interest to researchers and academics.


Academic Publishing (LaTeX, PDF tools)

Shell Utilities and Shell Scripting

Artwork & Graphics

I mainly use LightWave and The GIMP for my artwork and graphics. These tutorials detail some of the things I have figured out how to make using these applications.
