Hey, pretty interesting blog :) also thanks for checking mine, I've added you to the blogs I follow

ReplyDeleteThanks a lot

ReplyDeletethe R user:)If you want, leave here your blog link, so other people can take advantages of your posts :)

Thanks so much, here it is:

and... do you think you could explain me how to install in my blog the "math formula" gadget?, I've been trying but I can't, thanks :)

copy and paste this code in a new HTML/Javascript gadget, created in your layout page:

<script type="text/javascript">replaceMath( document.body );</script>

Now in your posts you can write formulas putting your LaTeX code between two dollar symbol.

I hope this help you :)

Thank you very much, it did, so.. you're a statistician?

ReplyDeletenot yet. Currently I'm studying biostatistics :)

ReplyDeleteAwesome!, I'm an actuary, just finished actually (last may) and I'm gonna take a full year in europe before getting a job here in Mexico, you know a lot about statistics btw :), I find pretty interesting what you write ;)
