Throughout the course of my research, I come across a lot of obstacles and nuisances that are either undocumented or documented poorly. Therefore, I decided to throw up this blog as a repository of sorts to store all of these little tidbits of information with the hope that it will save somebody somewhere a few minutes of frustration. But even if it doesn’t, I’m sure it’ll help me in the future, if only to serve as a reference.
My research deals mainly with statistical computing and involves a lot of R programming so most of the posts will revolve around that. I’m also an Apple user and although R on Macs has come a long way, there is still room for improvement. Hopefully this blog will be a small step towards making Mac OS X a statistics research-friendly platform.
