Do you use R? What else have you used? Here is a place to discuss R. Or to rant about it. This is the second time I have messed around with this. The first time was to do some fancy statistics. I ended up giving up when I learned that there was an expert statistician available to help out on-campus, and just handed him my data set. Now I'm here again... different application, same coding mess. I hate R. I hate code. I don't understand it. Every tutorial I have found shows me I've jumped in way over my head. I have a lot to learn in a short amount of time and I'm not happy. Supposedly there's a bunch of support out there for the R environment, but... I don't speak informatics. yet? Grr. This is not the direction I wanted to go.
