Anyone else use this damn statistical program?

I grew up learning on Minitab, and if it weren't so damn expensive (~$1,300) and the fact that my institution has a site-license for SAS, I'd use it. As it is, I often use the Excel plugin Analyse-It for quick and dirty work, and heck if it doesn't do half the stuff SAS does ... and does it quicker.

I mean, just to get the lsmeans of 32 samples, I had to write ~50 lines to get the lsmeans and std errors in SAS. That's a damn joke!

F**k you SAS!

Dude at least you have excel plug ins in the new version for pc, Mac lost that when they threw visual basic in the fucking trash. I too hate SAS and would rather take a needle in the eye than work with that.

Where I am there is always some show-off that learned R and will give you a plug-in for excel. Or you can find one online. they are usually pretty straightforward, at least the ones I have seen. No muss, no fuss!

The rain and hail that pelted Philadelphia for much of the day dissipated just as people across the city spilled out of sports bars, apartments and houses. wholesale baseball jersers Their destination: Broad Street. Their reason: a celebration 58 years in the making. oakland athletics jersers On Sunday night, just as Nick Foles led the Philadelphia Eagles to a surprise Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots in Minneapolis, the scene more than 1,000 miles away in Philly was jubilation and pandemonium.

And Philadelphians young and old descended on Broad Street, the busy thoroughfare running through the city. colorado rockies jersers “The city deserved it,” said 66-year-old Lou Potel, who threw a party at his home before joining a much bigger party outside. “It’s a great city, and now we have a Super Bowl to go along with it.” milwaukee brewers jersers Like so many other fans, Potel’s love for the Eagles has been passed down from generation to generation. He went to the Super Bowl with his son the last time the Eagles played in the title game in 2004, when they lost to the Patriots, and said watching Sunday’s championship with his son “made up for it”. baltimore orioles jersersDustin Seidman, 42, and his wife Staci, 41, brought their 10-year-old son and eight-year-old daughter to the festivities on Broad Street, even as drunken fans sprayed beer and climbed trash trucks, street poles and awnings.
