A quick bug fix released of RPostgreSQL was uploaded to CRAN earlier today; it updates last week's 0.1-5 release. An editing error left one of the helper functions broken. I also updated a few of the test scripts to also allow for optional environmen... [Read more...]

October 16, 2009 | Thinking inside the box

Another trio concert at CSO, but very different from the most recent classic piano trio.

Zut alors!

October 12, 2009 | Thinking inside the box

Christian: of course you will be running the Chicago 2010 marathon as your next fall marathon. Not only are Paris and Chicago jumelée (i.e. sister cities), but the Dollar is so conveniently falling vis-à-vis the Euro that you'd get all this done for about a Euro and a ... [Read more...]

By this I mean random little adminstrative task such as (re-)moving or maybe renaming files or directories and the like. One of such cases just happened a few minutes ago.

Today it was once again time for the Chicago Half Marathon (which I have now been running in 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008). Conditions were much much better than last year's very heavy rainfall---we were once again treated to a sunny and clear Chicago sky. It was however a little on the humid side ... [Read more...]

August 12, 2009 | Thinking inside the box

A maintenance fix was applied to random: following the changes in release 0.2.0 a few months ago that reflected changes at the random.org site, we needed to make one more change in randomSequence. Thanks for Lynn Amon for spotting this. The new pac... [Read more...]

July 19, 2009 | Thinking inside the box

I just rolled up a new release of RInside, my C++ wrapper classes which facilitate embedding R into your own C++ application.
