Subject Re: SparkContext UI

Hi Sean/Sameer,

It seems you're both right.  In the python shell I need to explicitly call
the empty parens data.cache(), then run an action and it appears in the
storage tab.  Using the scala shell I can just call data.cache without the
parens, run an action tthat works.

Thanks for your help.
