Wouaw,

Thank you really very much Martin. It's a great honour.

Let me thank you back and all the useRs and developeRs for making such an amazing software. I never knew statistics without R. It certainly was a sad world. Also I would like to thank Eric Lecoutre who did a lot for the design of the gallery in the first place.

Romain
