I spent quite some time trying to debug a simple shell script which used a
function modifying global variables. The problem turned out to be a different
behaviour of a shell function when that's called from a pipeline.

I guess it's fairly obvious to statistics gurus, but I've spent quite some time
trying to figure out how to fit a quadratic model (with linear coefficients) in
R. Here's how.

I've just released WadcomBlog

(which you might have already noticed by looking
at my blog).

Today I had to install LaTeX (with Russian support) on another Mac. Since it
took me some time (and trial and error), I'm jotting down the recipe.

I was long looking for a quick way to resize images (without loading them into

Jason Molenda's
Makethumbs
I've finally found one.

I've been playing guitar for quite some time (though still at pretty amateurish
level) and recently started recording some stuff. Here are two pieces that
I think are the best of what I've done so far.

I've been using the R Project to
perform statistic-related tasks in my ongoing Ph.D work. It's a great system
and the only thing I had missed so far was the ability to annotate plots with
russian texts in cyrillic. Of course R is capable of that, but I haven't seen
complete recipes on how to do it anywhere on the web.
