I can't get the IPSUR package. Following
install.packages("IPSUR")
I get:

Warning: unable to access index for repository http://probability.ca/cran/bin/macosx/leopard/contrib/2.11
Warning message:
In getDependencies(pkgs, dependencies, available, lib) :
package ‘IPSUR’ is not available

Hmm. Have you tried a different CRAN mirror?

Entropy is one of Physics Foibles. Murphys Law is the layman’s Entropy. Entropy mirrors problity.

The scientific study of probability is a modern development. Gambling shows that there has been an interest in quantifying the ideas of probability for millennia, but exact mathematical descriptions only arose much later. It is helpful me.

The one thing I don’t do – which I really should consider – is follow enough people. I’m one of the twitterers that wait for someone to follow her and then I decide if I’m going to follow them back or not. I should actually make more of an effort to search for like-minded individuals to follow, learn from and engage with on Twitter instead of simply waiting for them to get to me first.

In all honesty – I do quite a few of these things – just a bit differently at times maybe. I engage a heck of a lot – but they’re not always new people – although they are at times. I do a lot of thanking (at least more than 10 a day) – especially for RT’s and comments – whether to new folks or to ones I already know. Doesn’t matter – a thank you to anyone that’s done something nice for you is well worth it. But then again – you already know how I feel about that right ?
