I noticed that this profile receives views. Let me make your click a little more worthwhile, and explain Iterator's raison d'ĂȘtre...

I do some things again and again, or my code does (almost) the same thing again and again. Iterating isn't tedious per se, but it helps to iterate rapidly. I am mastering that.

I work on topics in many areas, usually solving stimulating problems with stimulating data. Sometimes there is a stimulating amount of stimulating data.

To contact me, look for me in the SO R chat room, where I am often learning from R experts, or leave a message there or in a separate chat (@Iterator) - SO will alert me.

comment Why am I not motivated in this excellent situation?
+1 This is a useful answer. Although it doesn't have references, I believe there are tons of popular books that can back this up. (Although I'm not the OP, I'm not keen on popular books as references, as all too often they are based on rather weak references, too...) I had the same perspective about the ability to identify the incremental profit. Even in areas that I know quite well, with very quantitative people, it can be hard to tease out individual contributions. Moreover, expected payoff for potential pursuits is hard to estimate. So, ex post or ex ante, it's challenging.

More good advice. I just found this reference for determining the polarity of an adapter. I'm starting to see a plan here - when I inventory, I should make a note of these characteristics.

Is there some easy way to determine polarity?

This is EXCELLENT advice, thanks! I didn't even think about tip polarity. That put me on track to find this RadioShack page that gives more insight & links to related information.

@AdamWuerl That's a good bit of advice. There are certainly cables for which I've disposed of the device, though the cables were reusable with similar devices. Over time, the whole class of device has become obsolete, so the cables are relics. Think "Palm Pilot". :)
