comment Techniques for determining how “random” a sample is?
Thanks! Googling for "testing random number generators" turned up this free software from NIST, which I am looking into using to evaluate the "randomness" of my samples - csrc.nist.gov/groups/ST/toolkit/rng/index.html

comment How to analyze risk vs. reward for spending on research and development work?
@Mike: You can spend increments of $5, with each increment increasing the likelihood by 2.75%. But you cannot spend a non-increment of $5, such as $2.50 or $23.
