Abstract and acknowledgements

January 10, 2012


This weekend I will print “the thing”, otherwise known as 101 pages of thesis.  It’s been proofed to within an inch of its life, in terms of spelling and grammar. Moreover, the copyright issue is now resolved.  You may remember that I had concerns about “handing” copyright to the University, as their guidelines seemed to […]

One Thesis. Drafted.

January 3, 2012


The thesis is drafted. Once again I’m in a quandary about how to share some of it before it gets marked, for fear of being accused of cheating (either from myself or because someone uses something).  So i’m going to use my old trick of static pictures of some of the text, and ask you […]

I’m musing. I’m also going on holiday for a week tomorrow.  Sad person that I am, I’m having to force myself to take some beach books in addition to the three text books I’m taking to read.  I guess I’ve picked the right topic if I’m genuinely wanting to read these books over the latest […]
