I finally, finally downloaded R today. I’ve been meaning to check it out for ages. I only spent about 10 minutes on it once I had it downloaded though – things are too busy to be playing with a new toy. Next week is finals week. Probably best to work on the things that have deadlines in the next 7 days. Particularly those things which require me to give presentations in front of people. Turns out that the prospect of public humiliation is a pretty decent motivator, actually. I’ve been working away pretty diligently on getting those projects finished.
