Apologies for the nonexistent posting last week. I've been hard at work (some of the time, anyway) on my thesis, and can now proudly report that I have a completed draft. Woo-hoo!
Once I finish drawing up some accompanying diagrams, I get to send it off to my professors. There will almost certainly be some revisions, but I should have a final draft ready soon.
If you need a primer on what's been going on in the last week, just go to the Belmont Club and keep scrolling. Not much good news; but then, the good news isn't what we need to keep up with, is it?
