Holy crap, I am now a Doctor! (in computer science, not in medicine). I managed to unintentionally set up a Hollywood finish to my PhD, that resembled those movies where the hero goes through the most sadistic struggles, kills the baddies and finally diffuses the bomb with not even a second to spare, just as the counter reaches zero - all played in very slow motion but with equal suspense. I went through all sorts of problems, from research that I would have thrown out of the window (at great cost) had it not worked at the absolutely very last moment, to personal trouble, bureaucratic trouble that required travels and weeks from my non-existent time, etc etc, all stuffed in the last few months. But now, after months of 16-hour-work days, finally everything seems in its right place: I defended, submitted my PhD thesis (in Computer Vision, if it matters to anyone) and have two months to draw, build stuff and travel (or maybe just sleep) until late February when I'm starting work at a cool company here in NYC.
That was by far the most tiring thing I've ever done... and I really hope it will keep that title.
This is also why I didn't get to respond to many awesome comments and notes on this page - and didn't make any new drawings - during the last months, but it's now time for things to change!
