Weight loss


Well it was just over a year ago that I started my latest weight loss drive and I have managed to lose just over two stone. Not too bad and the trend still seems to be downward which is encouraging despite the amount of treats I have. I think that cycling every day, even in the winter, has made the biggest difference, as well as cutting down on the amount of flapjacks I consume at work. That said I am still official overweight and would like to lose a bit more blubber. By posting this I am hoping that I can keep focussed on it.

Painless way to install a new version of R? - Stack Overflow

"My preferred method on Windows (upgrading 2.10.1 to 2.11.0):
  • Install R-2.11.0
  • Copy R-2.10.0/library/* to R-2.11.0/library/
  • Answer "no" to the prompts asking you if it is okay to overwrite.
  • Start R 2.11.0 and then type
  • update.packages()"
