Firefox in lecture halls

I am really glad that the IT people have finally decided to have the Firefox browser in the PCs in the lecture halls and rooms. Germany and France has already issued warnings against the use of Microsoft's Internet Explorer becuase of the security issues. However, I am wondering why the University is still using the older version (Firefox 3.0.1) while the latest version is 3.5.7

Using the older version, which has a number of security issues is really not a good idea. Hope they update the browsers on all the PCs asap before something bad happens.

Which statistical test to use

If you are going to statistically analyse your data, knowing the right statistical test is absolutely essential. However, even if you have taken a couple of statistical courses, it is often difficult to decide which ones are the most relevant or correct tests.

If you are in that position you might find these links useful:

2. http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/mult_pkg/whatstat/default.htm

3. http://www.graphpad.com/www/Book/Choose.htm


Don't be surprised if your data can be analysed in many different ways depending on your objectives and hypotheses.
