You mention having some numeric data, but due to
the rest of your commentary, "numeric data" may
be the human applied "use" of the digits displayed.
i.e. it is not certain whether your data variable
is of type numeric or character. so I make a few

I thought I would share my experience with an Applecare warranty service
request. I bought a new 1 Ghtz Powerbook a little more than two years
ago to use for my digital photography hobby and other uses. About 14
months ago when I was rushing to catch a flight, my Powerbook flew out
of its case and hit a concrete curb, then bounced two or three times.
When this happened, my heart sank. The slot for the Superdrive was bent
so badly, I could not insert any discs into it and the case sustained a
lot of other damage. The entire case was bent. As a result, my Powerbook
would not close properl...Thanks to Apple

I was told that downloading Apps (e.g., Mac OS X installers) through App
Store gets our Apple ID account data injected into them. Is this true? I
compared my local free Mavericks 10.9 copy with someone' else copy, and
their file sizes did not match even though their versions were the same.
If this is true, does that mean we can't install onto other Macs that
did not download the apps. like my example?
Thank you in advance. :)

I need to download the latest XCode, but I can't connect my 10.9 system to the
internet at home, so I have to go to the library and do it there. It's a free
download and I'm competent to move an installer from a local volume to a shared
volume, but Apple in its infinite wisdom, [0, 1/n) as n->oo, won't let me do the
free download on an earlier OSX version.

:-<> Siri Sea...Unlimited polymorphic data structures
I've been experimenting with using unlimited polymorphic pointers
(e.g., class(*), pointer :: p) to build generic data structures and I
wondered if anyone might have suggestions about how to improve the
interface. I have in mind lists, hash tables, etc., but the important
components are simply a container with a pointer and procedures to get
and set the pointer, so I'll use that as a starting point:

I have a dataset which include 3 variables: id, i, j. For each id, the

these 3 variables to be unique, which means, for example, the
combination of id=2 i=3 j=1 can be on the dataset for only one time.
If the combination shows up for two or more times on the datset, I
need keep only the first obs this combination shows up and remove
other obs it shows up.
To solve the problem, I sort the dataset according to id i j. Then I

NOWHERE DID IT WARN ME THAT I COULD LOOSE ALL MY DATA. Consequently,
IT re-partitioned my hard drive, and my Windows data was totally gone.
I had some very important documents that are now gone forever. It is
now very likely I am going to get fired because of that, because I
