    I always have this funny mental image when someone talks about defending their thesis. I imagine a wild-eyed student clutching a large document to his/her chest and waving a flaming torch at a crowd of people wearing robes and octagonal hats who are trying to snatch at it.

    Is it anything like that?

    I had intended to show up for your defense, but I had to pick up my wife at the airport yesterday.

    I watched too much MP Flying Circus growing up. The damage was permanent.

    Theres no such thing as too much MP. And there is no evidence they ever damaged anyone :tongue:.

    The best of luck Space Tiger although I'm sure you won't need it. I look forward to reading it when it comes out.

    I'm giving a public colloquium on Tuesday at 4:30, so feel free to stop by if you're in the area. The defense itself is fairy impenetrable to non-specialists anyhow.

    Thanks everyone. I do hope to have a little more free time, but honestly, I don't think it will be a lot more. I just started a job at Rutgers and have been kept pretty busy even since I submitted the thesis three weeks ago. Also, my internet access will be limited until the end of the month. :P

    Newark? That's practically in the neighborhood.

    What's the title/subject of the dissertation?
