Complicated software need not have complicated interfaces.

Sandro Saita from http://www.dataminingblog.com/ just named me for an award on his blog (but my surname is ohRi , Sandro left me without an R What would I be without R :)) ).
Aw! I am touched. Google for “Data Mining Blog” and Sandro is the best that it is in data mining writing.

DMR People Award 2010
There are a lot of active people in the field of data mining. You can discuss with them on forums. You can read their blogs. You can also meet them in events such as PAW or KDD. Among the people I follow on a regular basis, I have elected:Ajay Ori
He has been very active in 2010, especially on his blog . Good work Ajay and continue sharing your experience with us!”

20091231 to Today
So how do people come here 
well I guess I owe Tal G for almost 9000 views ( incidentally I withdrew posting my blog from R Bloggers and Analyticbridge blogs – due to SEO keyword reasons and some spam I was getting see (below))
http://rbloggers.com is still the CAT’s whiskers and I read it a lot.
I still dont know who linked my blog to a free sex movie site with 400 views but I have a few suspects.

Still reading this post gosh let me sell you some advertising. It is only $100 a month (yes its a recession)
Advertisers are treated on First in Last out (FILO)
I have been told I am obsessed with SEO , but I dont care much for search engines apart from Google, and yes SEO is an interesting science (they should really re name it GEO or Google Engine Optimization)
Apparently Hadley Wickham and Donald Farmer are big keywords for me so I should be more respectful I guess.

What about outgoing links? Apparently I need to find a way to ask Google to pay me for the free advertising I gave their chrome notebook launch. But since their search engine and browser is free to me, guess we are even steven.

Who searches for this Blog?
Using WP Stats I set about answering this question
What search keywords lead here
Clearly Michael Jackson is down this year
And R GUI, Data Mining is up.
How does that affect my writing given I get almost 250 visitors by search engines alone daily assume I write nothing on this blog from now on.
It doesnt I still write what ever code or poem that comes to my mind. So it is hurtful people misunderstimate the effort in writing and jump to conclusions (esp if I write about a company I am not on payroll of that company just like if I write about a poem I am not a full time poet)

Doing Time Series using a R GUI
Until recently I had been thinking that RKWard was the only R GUI supporting Time Series Models
however Bob Muenchen of http://www.r4stats.com/ was helpful to point out that the Epack Plugin provides time series functionality to R Commander.
Note the GUI helps explore various time series functionality.
Using Bulkfit you can fit various ARMA models to dataset and choose based on minimum AIC
And I also found an interesting Ref Sheet for Time Series functions in R
http://cran.rproject.org/doc/contrib/Riccirefcardts.pdf
and a slightly more exhaustive time series ref card
http://www.statistischewochenuernberg2010.org/lehre/bachelor/datenanalyse/Refcard3.pdf
Also of interest a matter of opinion on issues in Time Series Analysis in R at
http://www.stat.pitt.edu/stoffer/tsa2/Rissues.htm
Of course , if I was the sales manager for SAS ETS I would be worried given the increasing capabilities in Time Series in R. But then again some deficiencies in R GUI for Time Series
1) Layout is not very elegant
2) Not enough documented help (atleast for the Epack GUI and no integrated help ACROSS packages)
3) Graphical capabilties need more help documentation to interpret the output (especially in ACF and PACF plots)
