Thank you so much!!!

Great tutorial series so far, Gordon (I am on No.3), thank you.
At ~7’33” to 7’40” you talk briefly about having your “Default working directory…” as ~/Rdata -this is confusing me. Is this a file name you just made up under a “Save as” option at some point? Or is something you can select. I am trying to keep things as identical as possible to you as I follow your series. I don’t want to slip up on this.

Really excellent series of tutorials on R! Thanks so much for creating this. I had been struggling with a way to come up to speed on this package and found that by going through your 10 videos I had an excellent introduction to R. I really hope you will create more training modules as your style and presentation makes it really easy and enjoyable to follow along. Nice job!!!

Self-teaching myself to be a Data Analyst, and been told that if I was going to learn a program, R was the one to do it in. Your tutorials are being a massive help, thank you.
