Closing time

If all goes well today, I’m due to hand in my thesis this afternoon, around 3pm.

Until then, I’ll be working at Ordina. My first week is also nearing

Whoa, that feels nice! I’m (finally) done waiting for the approval for my graduation!

Done! yay! *celebrates* Update (2008-04-07): I’ve had to reschedule the appointment to

Frantic times

When you’ve been to college (of any form: MBO, HBO, WO, other) you probably know the drill: several hours before the deadline some frantic work is done to get everything in order to meet the final deadline set by your teacher.

Daily report

Our final report is getting along nicely, and after persuading Microsoft Word to follow my intentions which has caused quite a bit of a headache at times, it also not only looks nice but has the right chapter-numbering. I hope we will be releasing the report in a short while, for you all to read and gloat upon. It will
