After an unannounced hiatus, I'm now ready to resume posting! Many of you probably knew I have been dealing with a dissertation over the last month - submitting a final copy to my committee, preparing for an oral defense, and then working on revisions. Today, at 11:45 a.m., I received final approval of my document from the graduate school. Which means - I'm done! Thursday is the hooding ceremony.
So I've a few posts that have been on the back burner, that will be up here soon, hopefully. I'm first going to finish the "Data and the Open Source Paleontologist" series, and then move on to some of my experiences with crafting a dissertation primarily using open source software.
