I'm a historian who also happens to tinker around in code for my research. My interests involve textual analysis, web scraping, and the like.

comment How can I improve Mathematica's resolution on a macbook retina display?
@M.R. I just re-checked it on my system and it works. You drag the application icon (not the shortcut from your dock) onto the program, and it'll retinize or de-retinize.

comment Dealing with large files
Actually, this SO discussion "Way to deal with large data files in Wolfram Mathematica" looks pretty key for this. stackoverflow.com/questions/2370570/…

comment Dealing with large files
I'm interested in this too. When I've been dealing with plain text files, I often use the split command in bash. i.e. split -l 500 data. Here's the man page.

comment Comparing Unequal Lists of Surnames to Establish Over or Under-Representation
@SimonWoods The example data used the wrong denominator in part of it (my bad), but I've double checked and the full sets do total out properly. Sorry - the ideas below are working quite well!

comment Comparing Unequal Lists of Surnames to Establish Over or Under-Representation
@DavidSlater That would be great - a list that had the difference in percentage that could then be played with. My issue so far has been the different length of lists.
