Save Matlab Figures to pdf / convert eps files to pdf

In Matlab saving  a figure as a pdf results in a rather bad quality. It is better to save the figure as .eps and convert it to .pdf, e.g. in Linux via the terminal tool

epstopdf File.eps 

NOTE, especially if the .eps file is in landscape orientation, the terminal tool ps2pdf does not work properly and cuts off pdfs in portrait orientation.

Install Drupal on a hosted server

A very good introduction. I only wish to add some minor things.

When copying all the files to your webserver (e.g. via ftp) make sure you also copy the hidden files

If you don't copy .htaccess one thing that will not work is clean urls, see, section "Enabling Clean URLs in Drupal"
