Hello, Ian, and welcome to Wikiqermia! I hope you like the place and decide to stay. I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikiqermian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. Again, welcome!  -- Eli 16:13, 20 March 2008 (PDT)

PS. H. Nesse, never at a loss for ways to massacre time, has actually performed a study on the effectiveness of welcoming people for the encouragement of further edits. Hopefully you will find this form letter not too creepy to scare you away from valuable contributions in the future!

Response from Eli

Hi Ian! (I'm not sure whether your "watching" my page, so I'll reply to your post here.) Thanks for your cool contributions to R tips! The data page we were talking about is just: Data. There is basically nothing there yet, but the idea (from what Tommy and Hans have talked about) is to have a repository of cool publicly available data. Regarding date/time, if you sign your name with ~~~~, you get a full signature with date/time. Three tildes ~~~ just leaves your name and a link behind. Another formatting note: I found that the <pre> </pre> tags are a nice robust way for inputting large bits of code (see R/Correlated Random Walk). It might be better to use that in general instead of uploading text files (though I shudder to think that our handmade Rlogo.jpg R code template would become obsolete!)

Ian! Thanks for starting and sharing SS output code on the Google code page. This will definitely come in handy in a month or so when I start cranking out results.

Congratulations on your new message

Hi Ian! I threw up some poor responses to your questions on my user page. I'm sure you'll discover them on your own ... but I wanted to reciprocate that moment of excitement when logging on the Qermipidia informs you that you've gotten a new message, which was such a treat for me earlier today!

Fabulous ...

... Hans sighting! Although, I have heard, though am sceptical, that modern technology allows photographs to be "doctored". Is that true? Are we sure this isn't a hoax to keep our feeble hopes up? - Eli 00:41, 16 January 2009 (PST)


For adding the link/bolding my name, I was too lazy to do it every time after the first response. Aditya.khanna 16:45, 18 February 2009 (PST)

Thanks, Again!

For the Find and Replace Tip! I should have thought of it, my foggy head generally overlooks simple solutions :-) Aditya.khanna 23:33, 18 February 2009 (PST)

Notes and thesis

The thesis is easy, but the qerm514 stuff is a mess. I tried to compile it but with no luck (one of the packages is now depreciated, so it's associated commands no longer seem to work). Some day, if I had the time, I would go through and fix the multitude of grammar issues and make it properly useful. But alas, too buried in work at the moment.
