It is already two months (from the date, Feb. 13) since I gave the draft of my PhD thesis to Professor Crouch. Unfortunately, I have not received any feedback from him yet. I have no idea how long it will take him to finish reading my thesis. My oral defense was orginally schduled in April, but now it seems that I have to defer it to May.

It is great that the university allows us to set up our own web logs, which is free of cost and free of ads. I have tried to build a similar one on my personal web site: http://www.cs.umn.edu/~jianlin, but that was not as easy to use as this one. The only thing I need to do now is to add a link to this page on my personal webpage.
