R Project Updates
Updates from R Core:
as.data.frame()methods, notably the
matrixone, are now more careful in not accepting duplicated or
NArow names, and by default produce unique non-NA row names. This is based on
row.names(x, make.names = *) <- rNmswhere
make.namesis a new logical, with back compatible default.
par*applyLBgain an optional argument
chunk.sizewhich allows to specify the granularity of scheduling.
parSapplyLBhave been fixed to do load balancing (dynamic scheduling). This also means that results of computations depending on random number generators will now really be non-reproducible, as documented.

Quotes of the Week

You can see the devastating impact of the Famine, the gradual thinning of the rural population and the late-20th c. suburban sprawl #history #ireland #rstats pic.twitter.com/SOwSyHvPIN— Alan Fernihough (@DiffusePrioR) March 9, 2018

Day in my #rstats life:— Mario Martinez (@Kwarizmi) March 6, 2018
0930: How lucky I am to work on clean datasets curated by true professionals.
1330: Huh. Some inconsistencies here. No bigs. I'll just write up some quick and dirty regex to clean this up.
1720: I WILL BURN THIS HERETICAL DATA CENTER AND SCATTER ITS ASHES
