I am not sure what the problem is but here is a link that could be helpful: http://serverfault.com/questions/11234/win-7-error-no-disk-in-the-drive. It seems to be related to drive letters and possibly USB drives. Does that seem to be the right track? This advice helped another user.
129. A statistics professor was describing sampling theory to his class, explaining how a sample can be studied and used to generalize to a population. One of the students in the back of the room kept shaking his head. “What's the matter?” asked the professor. “I don't believe it,” said the student, “why not study the whole population in the first place?” The professor continued explaining the ideas of random and representative samples. The student still shook his head. The professor launched into the mechanics of proportional stratified samples, randomized cluster sampling, the standard error of the mean, and the central limit theorem. The student remained unconvinced saying, “Too much theory, too risky, I couldn't trust just a few numbers in place of ALL of them.” Attempting a more practical example, the professor then explained the scientific rigor and meticulous sample selection of the Nielsen television ratings which are used to determine how multiple millions of advertising dollars are spent. The student remained unimpressed saying, “You mean that just a sample of a few thousand can tell us exactly what over 250 MILLION people are doing?” Finally, the professor, somewhat disgruntled with the scepticism, replied, “Well, the next time you go to the campus clinic and they want to do a blood test…tell them that's not good enough …tell them to TAKE IT ALL!!”
131. A new Ph.D statistician had just taken a position with the Bureau of Standards. One of his first tasks was to familiarize himself with the volumes of measurement standards for the vast array of objects in the world. He was immediately curious about his own profession and looked up “statistician.” Among the list of physical characteristics, he came across a shocking figure…The mean weight of all statisticians in the world is 3 POUNDS. He gasped in disbelief. He thought surely this was a typographical error and that the first two digits had been omitted. Then he squinted and noticed a small asterisk by this figure. He quickly directed his eyes to the bottom of the page. He sighed a breath of relief as the footnote boldly stated, “INCLUDES URN.”
148. Checking some questionnaires that had just been filled in, a census clerk was amazed to note that one of them contained figures 121 and 125 in the spaces for “Age of Mother, If Living” and “Age of Father, if Living.”
“Surely your parents can't be as old as this?” asked the incredulous clerk.
“Well no,” was the answer, “but they would be IF LIVING!”
160. It is 1941 and the Germans are bombing Moscow. Most people in Moscow flee to the underground bomb shelters at night, except for a famous Russian statistician who tells a friend that he is going to sleep in his own bed, saying that “There is only one of me, among five million other people in Moscow. What are the chances I'll get hit?”
He survives the first night, but the next evening he shows up at the shelter. His friend asks why he has changed his mind. “Well,” says the statistician, “there are five million people in this city, and one elephant in the Moscow Zoo. Last night, THEY GOT THE ELEPHANT!”
1. A statistics major was completely hung over the day of his final exam. It was a True/False test, so he decided to flip a coin for the answers. The stats professor watched the student the entire two hours as he was flipping the coin…writing the answer…flipping the coin…writing the answer. At the end of the two hours, everyone else had left the final except for the one student. The professor walks up to his desk and interrupts the student, saying: “Listen, I have seen that you did not study for this statistics test, you didn't even open the exam. If you are just flipping a coin for your answer, what is taking you so long?”
The student replies bitterly, as he is still flipping the coin: “Shhh! I am checking my answers!”
2. Three professors (a physicist, a chemist, and a statistician) are called in to see their dean. Just as they arrive the dean is called out of his office, leaving the three professors there. The professors see with alarm that there is a fire in the wastebasket.
The physicist says, “I know what to do! We must cool down the materials until their temperature is lower than the ignition temperature and then the fire will go out.”
The chemist says, “No! No! I know what to do! We must cut off the supply of oxygen so that the fire will go out due to lack of one of the reactants.”
While the physicist and chemist debate what course to take, they both are alarmed to see the statistician running around the room starting other fires. They both scream, “What are you doing?”
To which the statistician replies, “Trying to get an adequate sample size.”
I hope you found X useful. Were you able to get reports working or would you like some help? And if SOFA Statistics was not what you were looking for, would you have any suggestions for how the product could be improved to better meet your needs.
All the best, Dr Grant Paton-Simpson SOFA Statistics
Easier to start using - more guidance. Less to learn.
Is there anything I can learn from what SPSS customers are saying about SPSS? Possible issues from http://groups.google.com/group/comp.soft-sys.stat.spss/browse_thread/thread/647118758f84e1be/3cb6e8510544b081 etc:
Both authors reflect on how CRAN is having so many packages (extensions to R core). While the diversity is wonderful, the scalability in the user’s ability to handle the variety is limited. From a user’s perspective it is very hard to find/follow/manage all the innovative R extensions out there. One hope for improvement in this front is the project “Crantastic“, which I hope will get (much) more attention and expansion.
NB I am interested in reading from simple ODS files (rows and columns of data, no formulae etc), not OpenOffice Calc per se. Gnumeric is also important.
* In Java: c.) Eclipse's RCP (Rich Client Platform) http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/moreinfo/rcp.php Many, many great programs use the Eclipse RCP “engine” to build great apps on top. A few examples: http://www.talend.com and http://www.bioclipse.net/
All approaches above will allow you to get out of the “infrastructure” business (use theirs), while focusing on your true value-add: the algorithms and user experience. Just a suggestion.

One option is to install the free and open source product http://sqlitebrowser.sourceforge.net/. It is quite light-weight and simple. You can manipulate data there very easily with your own data queries. The sqlite database that SOFA stores its data in is called sofa_db and can be found in C:\Documents and Settings\username\sofastats\_internal (Windows XP), C:\Users\username\sofastats\_internal (Windows Vista/7), /home/username/sofastats/_internal (Ubuntu/Linux Mint), /Users/username/sofastats/_internal (Mac OS X).
To open that database, sofa_db, within SQLite Data Browser:
File > Open Database
This is how Bachoura et al (2012) cited SOFA:
Data were analyzed using Statistics Open For All (SOFA) 1.1.5 software (Paton-Simpson & Associates Ltd, New Zealand).
