I also completed the survey. I am disappointed that it lacked the option "Byzantine combination of factors that it would take too long to explain".

That would have been my first choice too. :'(
Whatever happened to Rico, Dolman and Cadet Paris? I'm sooo out of the loop.

Many thanks to everyone who took time to complete the "How I Organise My Trade Paperbacks" survey. We had ten respondents which, to be honest, was ten times more than I expected. I have carried out a detailed analysis of the data and present below my findings.

As this graph obviously demonstrates the preferred method of organisation is firstly by "character" followed closely by the "writer/artist" combo and (my own preference) "height". I won't go into the rest of the detail as I am sure its all very clear in the graphic below.

I trust this matter is now settled and there is no need for further discussion.

The bodhran-sound sound you hear is a vein in The Cosh's forehead throbbing fit to burst.  Audible all the way from Basel.

I specifically picked the bodhran shaped graph for that reason.

I thought graphs were meant to make statistics clearer? I can't made head nor tail of that spiderweb thingy.

I thought it was pretty clear. If you look at the eight models, first you may notice some similarities. All are modeling Y, an outcome. They have a “fixed” portion with some parameters to estimate – this portion estimates the mean values of Y at the different values of X. All quotas have a residual, which is the random part of the model–the variation in Y that is not affected by the Xs. Since the Xs are categorical, they have only a few values, to indicate which category a case is in. Those subscripts? They’re really just indicating the values of X.

Hope that makes sense.

Funnily enough that graph makes sense to me.  :lol:
At some point in the next few days I'm going to reshuffle my shelves into a more "pleasing" order and take a few photos. Watch this space.

OK here are some exciting photos of my collection in its current form. It's in the back row of boxes (along with the CDs)

I hope I don't need them any time soon (in the next 3 months) as the storage is currently like this. Hopefully then, project ManCave can commence.

As soon as I get my hands on the house I will  :lol:. It's got students in it till June though so we need to wait till then, then we need to de-studentify it before I'll allow the precious collection in.
