Yes we are on. The room number is #229 and the building is located at 5030 Cherry ST. There are a couple of disability parking spots behind the building if anyone needs that. There will also be parking along Cherry street between Volker and 50th St., and on Cherry Street on south bound side of street between 53rd and the new Student Union. But the best bet is to park behind the administration building at 5115 Oak, enter the parking lot on the south side of the admin building.
If you enter the building at the Southeast Corner, that is the 2nd floor and room #229 is immediately to the left after you clear the stairwell.
See you Saturday. I'll put on a pot of coffee. Plus I'll have a laptop available with R and RevolutionR installed on it.

R user group this saturday! Second floor of Cherry Hall at UMKC at 2pm (Can we get a room number, Bob?). There is a projector. Free parking is available behind the administrative center on oak (5115 oak).
I will talk about text mining using the tm package and Steve will talk about creating models within a loop. And anybody else can feel free to bring along anything interesting they've come across.
I'll bring my big box of R monkeys and t-shirts (stocking stuffers?) and some R cookies.

I need to expand the page abit but the general concept is that if you need to create a seriesof models inside a loop, it is tricky to do so. You have to convertstring vectors into object lists or formulas and the functions to do this are rather bizarre.Steve Simon, n...@pmean.com, Standard Disclaimer.Sign up for the Monthly Mean, the newsletter that dares to callitself average atwww.pmean.com/newsOn 10/6/2011 9:23 PM, Madelaine Gogol wrote:Hi,We are getting 100 $ from Revolution Analytics.

We could do a few shorter talks if a few peoplehave a little something to show. I could show a little bit fromthe tm (text mining) package.Madelaine
