Thanks to the many people on the list who provided helpful responses,
including those who Emailed me directly.
Several people have suggested that I just pick up R and give it a try.
My reluctance to do this is that I am already very familiar with my
current working method (Python + Numpy) and I worry that without a
course I will work in a Python-centric way, which won't be optimal.
I feel it would also be useful to spend some time with an R expert so
that I can find out what R does well and what it does badly. This way
I'll when I should use R and when I should use some other method (like
Python). I may find out that I'm better off with Python for everything I
do, but I won't be confident in this conclusion unless I talk to
somebody who really knows what they're doing.
Anyway, I now have a few courses to choose from, so many thanks for the
