This week we have more members of the group contributing posts. Dr Peter Vesk has provided some interesting information about programs that can help in developing conceptual models. Will Morris reported an ‘Rchievement’ that facilitates remote monitoring of lengthy R simulations, and in the same vein, John Baumgartner has whetted our appetite for R-Twitter integration, which can be especially useful for keeping informed of the progress of complex models that might take days to complete.
