My deadline is Christmas fuckin' Eve. As they say in Dutch, the final pieces of lead weigh the most. (It refers to trying to balance a scale with lead pieces.)

Line of sight to an xbox controller while working? You some kind of masochist?

But seriously, good luck!

A coupe of things.

1. LaTeX makes my heart smile.

2. The lack of typographer's quotes does not. `` and '' are your friends.

3. What you're working on sounds genuinely interesting. Could I read the full thing when you're done?

1. I'm so glad I made the switch. It isn't my first time using LaTeX, but it is the first time I'm doing it all on my own. Found a nice thesis template that I have adapted to my liking:

2. I had no idea! Will fix that.

3. Sure! Actually, I've sent my 6-page summary & formalised methodology to some people for feedback, so if you (or anyone else reading this) have spare time, I'm all ears. :)

I love LaTeX :)

I wrote my Bachelor and Master thesis with LaTeX. The outcome is just beautiful!
