Life 3.0 @Leopold

Saturday, March 13th, 2010

So, I’m getting old. Yesterday I “upgraded” my life to 3.0. The upgrade worked out quite well, although I took till 3.00 am. Lots of friends joined the upgrade party and it really was great fun. I actually got a pretty cool present: a parachute tandem jump. Looks like it is getting windy … thank you everyone for attending and all the presents I got.

Final Phd Exam

Monday, March 1st, 2010

Today I passed my final phd exam with distinction Both supervisors also graded my thesis with “A” (Sehr Gut). I got very good feedback on the work I did. Actually, I’m very happy today. My professors also reminded me of the fact, that with my grades it might be possible to apply for a promotion “sub auspiciis” which is the highest academic recognition you can get in Austria – thus only about ten Phds per year receive this honour, which is given by the president of our country. Wow … let’s see if this is about to work out.
