After I saw it referred to here, and a stats grad student recommended it,
I have been using R quite a bit recently... but I am pretty sure I have
barely scratched the surface.  It is kind of a cross between Perl and
Octave with more statistical analysis tools than _I_ know what to do with.
If you are doing statistics, it is probably worth the effort.

I am getting my data out of a SQL database, which gives me some added
benefits, but R can do a lot of database-like operations on the data even
after I extract it.
