Hello Friends,

What Phil Rack stumbled across is that when SAS does demos and "SAS Presents" presentations, they don't make it into the proceedings, and hence, into the Lex Jansen site.

Another way to look at the situation is that what *didn't* happen is that someone (SAS employee or someone not affiliated with SAS) started using the R to SAS/IML Studio interface and found it interesting enough to submit a paper for presentation at SGF.

I pretty much stick with SAS in my current job but might start using R for exploratory graphics in the future. The only thing to note is if I do, it is not likely to generate a SGF paper because it wouldn't be SAS-related.

Best wishes,

Michael Davis
