Sadly, Armando the thesis writing is far from over... What this last month represents is more a last gasp for summer - I had a house full (literally!) of in-laws with whom I could not really communicate (they're all Korean) and spent a lot time on DC. I actually got a lot of PhD work done, too, but it is more planning and writing the skeleton - I still have to flesh it out. As of tomorrow, I will be teaching three classes again so will have to organise my time better. Hopefully, I'll be able to participate here as well.
