Interesting, haven't heard of it before. I will definitely check it out.

comment Setting up your own LaTeX compile server?
Very good solution! I tried it for a couple of minutes on my PC, and it works great. Have to check out if it works on the iPad equally well.

comment Performance of LaTeX and other TeX derivatives
Good ideas in here. Also I have found out that the preamble can be precompiled. Since all reports have the same preamble, this might help. It's documented here: howtotex.com/tips-tricks/…

@MikeRenfro: Yes, this is also one of the ideas I am throwing around. Thanks for the input, though.

comment Performance of LaTeX and other TeX derivatives
@JimHefferon: I have a limited amount of time for this mass report job. Only a couple of seconds per job, hence performance of LaTeX is of great interest.

Server side access is no problem. If I did not have that, I would use TeXcloud or something like that.

This is more or less my problem, yes. egreg has also given me a useable answer.

Perfect. That was what I was looking for!

comment How can I make the content list of a PDF expanded by default?
Yes, I guess this is correct. I don't know the exact names of this. But the side bar basically shows me the table of contents.

comment Where to put the \label on a figure environment?
Thanks everyone for the insight. As a user I thought that I was putting a label on a figure environment, but instead I am really putting a label on a caption. That's good to know. However I concur with Mark that putting the \label command inside of a \section looks weird. Even if Mr Lamport says so, it does not mean it's the user friendliest solution. :)

Good idea, I think that is more or less what Peter just did below.

comment LaTeX formulas in gnuplot plot legends?
andrey: yes, I was mistaken, it's fixed now. I also changed the plot, and am using a Makefile now to re-generate my plots. This is finally the solution I was looking for. All I need now is color in my plots, but I guess I will manage.

Good hint! I will try that option PS: which texlive package contains the minimal documentclass? My installation does not have it, yet...

comment LaTeX formulas in gnuplot plot legends?
1. Alright. It was necessary when I was trying it interactively. 2. Can you elaborate? I tried typesetting a "$-2$" and it worked just fine, I think. 3. Without cropping, I get an A4 page. However, I'd like a tightly fitting PDF that I can use wherever I want. :)
