still there, that would be a great place to host example papers.

One issue is that most of my papers are either confidential or copyright to somebody so will limit what I can post. I am sure that others might be in the same boat. I think a thesis is (shared?) copyright between the author and the university. We might need some waffle in the directory to cover copyright issues. Most papers are not a single file.

I use MM as a macro package. Is that still relevant to enough people? As young Doug reminded me a long time ago, if a macro package does the job for you once you learn it, you keep using what you first learnt if. He has been an MS person for slightly longer than I have been an MM person.

Most of my papers have equations, both simple and complex although I am still learning 'eqn' even though I have used it and troff/groff for many decades.
