Time to get both R and WinEdt installed and working properly on my Vista laptop: 2+ hours.
I'm guessing it will be another 5 to produce the scatterplot with confidence intervals that has led me to R in the first place.
I've never listed statistical software on my CV before. I always assumed that folks would know that I'm proficient at various packages if I use various methods in my research and teach a graduate level baby-stats course. But, if my progress with R goes how I think it is likely to go, I can now understand the temptation to add it to your CV--that is, something that takes so much time should get its own line.
Update: I gave up. I found a package in Stata that will do what I need. Also, I discovered that the iTunes download of Season 3 of Veronica Mars is what ate all my laptop disk space--a mystery that has been plaguing me for a couple of weeks.
Update 2: I am the Stata graph master!

Can you share the package in Stata that will do that? Thanks!
