Update on 2013/01/05: Xiao Nan in the comments pointed out that apply(combn(letters, 2), 2, paste0, collapse = '') was wrong for all two-letter usernames, and indeed it was.

In simple weighted averaging (WA) there is little to specify other...

Shortening code in R: "with" and "within" are your friends

January 4, 2013
