I can't do it daily at the moment, but I could do it occasionally,
maybe a couple of times a week. I'm going away for Christmas next week
so I won't be able to do much until I get back. If I can get the build
working on OS X I might be able to do it more often (hopefully it
shouldn't be too hard, I think I just haven't set up latex correctly).
