[R] Open source community help-desks

I read the reply earlier in which Nima was "naughty-naughty"'d for calling
us a Help Desk. And, I have to admit that I agree.
But then, an open-source listserv is, in essence, a help desk....well, maybe
not a desk, but we do help each other. My conflicting feelings about this
are better left for a therapist but, in the meanwhile, perhaps we need a
revision of Ayn Rand's "Virtue of Selfishness" and how it may or may not
extend to the open-source community.
All in fun,

title(main="Histogram of ...",cex=0.5)
see ?par for details on xlab, ylab, main, and cex arguments.
You can call these from title() or include them in hist().
I called title(main=..) separately to control its size separately
from the rest of the text (axis and tick labels).
