Comment on XML parsing made easy: is that podcast getting longer? by nsaunders

I still use the XML package in old code too and would not change just for the sake of it. I like rvest a lot for parsing or scraping web data though, and it's designed to work naturally with xml2, so I think the combo is worth investigating.

Cool! Are you telling me I should replace the XML package with rvest or xml2 even it is working fine in my scripts now?



Comment on Feels like a dry winter – but what does the data say? by Kevin Brewer

Where I live it is a lot wetter. 15mm yesterday, f'instance. Nearest station has recorded more than 660mm. We did have a very dry June with 12mm. Can you have a play and see if you can find the trends in rainfall, given the data is non-stationary? I like what you did and must do it myself. I have only ever cut and pasted, except for BoM data.

Your first sentence couldn't be truer. Scraping data off the web for random ponderings is something I look forward to on the weekends!

Great tutorial Neil, thanks for writing it. I had a bit of problems importing FontAwesome on Win 10. Explicit import with font_import(pattern = "fontawesome-webfont.ttf") helped.

Fantastic mini tutorial. All worked as described. Thankyou! I found the cheat sheet at http://fontawesome.io/cheatsheet/ really useful as it gives pictures of all the glyphs available.

Good illustration of how to compare two groups in the one figure Neil. Visualisation 101.
