My favorite vector symbol is a harpoon, but the harpoon package defaults to text mode, which will fail when math characters like \ell are used in the math mode.
To fix this, in your document header put:
You can manually put a USB HDD that doesn’t automatically spin-down after inactivity to sleep with the following command:
sg_start 0 --pc=3 /dev/sdc
where I assumed your HDD was at /dev/sdc. You can determine which /dev/sd* you’re at with the command
The HDD should automatically spring back to active spinning mode when you write a file to it, etc.
You can install the
sg_start program via:
sudo apt-get install sg3-utils
The reason you might want to do this include that the HDDs put out some substantial heat when they’re not spun down. You don’t want to spin up/down too frequently (like every 5 minutes) but if you’re not using the drive for the night or a few days, it might be worthwhile to spin them down if heating is an issue.

Even with a fresh install of Windows 7 x64 and Matlab R2013b, I was getting tbb.dll related errors after compiling M-scripts using Matlab Compiler deploytool. The exe would compile, but upon running it would issue various tbb.dll errors.
This problem happened across multiple PCs. To fix this problem, I followed this process:
1) download latest Intel Threaded Building Blocks from:
extract them to c:\tbb
2) install Intel TBB by starting Command Prompt with Run As Adminstrator, then type
tbbvars intel64 all
Then I went back to Matlab deploytool and recompiled.
