#rstats people: do you sometimes define new distributions? If yes how? distr package, define your own rdist, qdist functions?

@bgcarlisle Better questions to ask a grad student, if you want to show that you're interested and you also care about their mental health:

One of the first people spinning there was Frankie Knuckles who was all types of experimental in working with breakbeats as well as low-end sequencers which were available for cheap, and therefor more accessible 2/
