in honour of the last minute hack
In the grand tradition of getting things done and worrying about the consequences later, we've seen such monstrosities as the single pixel gif trick, HTML tables for formatting and other hideous creations. You know it's wrong, but you do it anyway, because the alternative is to not finish on time. So it was with my last minute formatting panic. At some level, I know using LaTex tables to hold images is just plain wrong. But it worked.
I sacrificed the elegant and the neat, and possibly the correct solution; for a hack. Like the Marine Corps credo of charging massively through the jungle like a rhino, regardless of obstacle, I did my bull-in-a-china-shop routine and "fixed" the images inside a hideously complicated table structure.
Now that I've blogged about it, I feel much better about dillydallying till the last possible minute to actually typeset the silly paper in the first place.
