Its a great feeling when you get to use skills you’ve acquired from one field and use them in another. I think its one of those things that will happen more and more often as I go on in college and life.
So I’m writing about data I took for a Data Analysis class project. We are supposed to use Minitab (statistics software) to calculate standard deviation, median/mean, plot graphs, etc. Instead of wasting time figuring out if Minitab lets you sort data, I just used GNU sort.

more power to *nix!
