The nocturnal workers' thread


User: cleverclogs - 04 December 2009 00:06

Anybody ever procrastinate in Yahoo Chat? Professors' chat:1 is wicked.

Also on the night train, viva in one week.

Well done, Chrisrolinski! 1/3 to go - you can do it!

Go Chrisrolinski!

That's an awesome night's work!

I think I may cave though, I've been working on this since 5.40am and I'm done for.

Good luck chris and wal :-)

i think that working on a Sunday is tantamount to nocturnal working! ;)

It's certainly very dedicated!

I was working last night (Saturday) from 11pm to midnight, which I thought was pretty dire! Might be putting in a bit of time tonight as well.

Good luck with your work today.

Checking in for a bit of nocturnal work now (it's 1.50am - sheesh!). Want to have another go at persuading Word to do what it's supposed to do, making my life easier. If that fails there's a fair bit of manual editing required.

User: BilboBaggins - 07 December 2009 04:03

And that's me checking out. All captions renumbered (it worked this time - yahoo!), margins set to my university's specifications (despite Word's attempts to foil that maneuvre), title/contents/acknowledgements/declarations/abstract/appendix pages set up, and bibliography added into the main text. Ooh it looks nearly finished! How exciting.

User: Sue2604 - 07 December 2009 10:31

Go Bilbo!! How exciting to see it all coming together! Wow, you're getting really close now! Well done!

User: BilboBaggins - 09 December 2009 04:47

Thanks Sue! I put in more time early yesterday morning, and got to the point of having a PDF of a nearly finished thesis to email to my supervisor to study over the next few weeks. Still have to finish the bibliography, write the abstract, and tidy a few things here and there. But it's looking nearly finished. Which is rather exciting. Had a small bottle of champagne last night to celebrate :)

Urgh! I will be up for a few more hours yet working on a chapter due on friday before I have to fly to the UK for thesis stuff on saturday. plus i have a postdoc proposal to finish by friday, and by 12 am tmrw to have read a 30 page paper to lead with in a reading group.

Sigh. (sprout)

Good luck with everything tonight, and hope your trip to the UK goes well too.
