It looks like I will be defending my dissertation this Wednesday, which represents the last hurdle in my quest for a PhD. I now get to spend the next 48 hours or so of my life preparing for the academic inquisition, so I suspect I will have little time or motivation to update the blog.
When we next converse, I will either have passed my defense or be booted from the world of serious academia.
Excuse me while I vomit... I don't suppose they make a human version of the 4396841 filter, do they?
