A great pro­gramme! I can now work eas­ily on any OS to pro­duce what are with­out doubt the most sat­is­fy­ing doc­u­ments I have ever writ­ten and re­ceive much com­pli­ment for them. I now use a sim­ple script (and Unzip) to turn MS Word into TeX. This is such an out­stand­ing pro­gramme that I have de­cided to hon­our it by set­ting my browser to only use the Com­puter Modern fonts.

Mir­ror er­ror

I get the fol­low­ing er­ror when at­tempt­ing to down­load a pack­age or man­ual:

mir­rors.ctan.org uses an in­valid se­cu­rity cer­tifi­cate. The cer­tifi­cate is only valid for the fol­low­ing names: *.dante.de, dante.de Er­ror code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN

After much search I have man­aged to gen­er­ate a few hi­ero­glyphs.

My at­tempt to up­load this ef­fort as an ex­am­ple to oth­ers, failed on the first at­tempt.

I will try some more. best, dick far­rell

Thank­ful for peo­ple like you.

Formerly com­pu­ta­tional neu­ro­science fac­ulty at UChicago, now fo­cused on math­e­mat­ics and statis­tics at KnuEdge Inc, do­ing physics, math, logic--di­verse writ­ing top­ics--I can't over­state how much I ap­pre­ci­ate your ef­forts. The great­est con­tri­bu­tions are made to ben­e­fit oth­ers, not make money. But only by ex­cep­tional peo­ple like you. Thank you so much.

Con­grats and thanks

I have lit­tle to do with Sciences or Maths, but my boss is Pro­fes­sor at Univer­si­dad Politéc­nica de Madrid (a tech­ni­cal Univer­sity). He told me about LaTeX and I de­cided to give it a try. It's soooooooo nice!!! :) I'm cur­rently study­ing LIS and I use LaTeX for all my home­work. That wouldn't be pos­si­ble with­out you, CTAN peo­ple, so thanks!!
