Re: 1676: "Full-Width Justification"

For LaTeX users I'd recommend the microtype package.

Re: Doctor Whom

That. Was. Fantastic.

I'm actually disappointed the next episode won't also just be Capaldi (mostly) by himself.

Disclaimer: Shaded areas are approximate. I'm just trying to convey my annoyance. Based on personal and a small focus group of friends experiences alone. Definition of Asia will vary between peopl- blah blah blah yadda yadda.
