Collected wisdom of the R community

Just for a bit of fun, I thought I might share with you the fortunes package from CRAN, containing some of the collected wisdom of the R community. My favourite, as someone who’s attempted to use BRugs to fit Bayesian models in R using WinBUGS, is number 13 on the list.

Andrew Thomas: . . . and if something goes wrong here it is probably not WinBUGS since that has been running for more than 10 years. . .
Peter Green (from the back): . . . and it still hasn’t converged!
