Some people bite their nails when they are nervous or stressed. I analyze data. And, with a trial last week two hours from home and another big court deadline breathing down my neck, my spare moments have been spent on data analysis instead of blogging.
Lately, I've been looking at the available data points on hadron masses, which I have on a spreadsheet on my computer (that I fear may die in the near future), on the backs of envelopes, and in scribbled notes that are impossible for anyone but me to read on yellow pads. The spreadsheet contains a regression model that summarizes the data with a small number of variables to an accuracy of about 99%. Some of the process is mnemonic. There is no better way to learn the nuances of a bunch of numbers than to play around with them.
Maybe some day, I'll blog about the topic. But, right now, I don't have the time for a quality post and I am more inclined to simply parse and deconstruct the data set in stolen minutes here and there.
