Reading and doing hands on learning in R.

I was able to get R up and running with a basic linear models book for R. The book is
Faraway, Julian J. Linear Models with R (Boca Raton, FL: Chapman & Hall/ CRC, 2005).
I read the first chapter finally. Then I installed the author's R package faraway then applied this command library(faraway). I then started the first problem in chapter 1 and produced some summary statistics and linear model graphs with the data set teengamb about teen age gambling. I talked to some coworkers about R at our Christmas lunch. I continue to work mostly in SAS at my day job.
