Back on topic:

I finished the outline and fleshed out 6 pages of the paper this morning. Getting started is the hardest part. As I am shooting for 15-20 pages and have 3 months left things look good. Maybe I can take a break for some video coding. :scratch:

3 months can go by quickly, make sure you stay on top of the paper. Don't want to rush it at the end, cramming doesn't work as well as steady progress.

Thanks for that advice, gonca.

I never rush anything, don't worry.

I'm pretty good about not procrastinating. Two choices: 1) Get everything done right away and then enjoy the remaining time until the delivery date. 2) Leave things to the last minute and spend the whole time worrying. It's the same amount of work either way so the first option is clearly superior. :ugeek:

Yeah, but...
You are also good to responding to DGTools users needs, bugs - wish list - issues with DGDecodeNV and third party tools.
Just make sure you don't get so deeply involved with something else that you allow time to slip by on you.
Learned this from my mom, if you have something to do, do it now and then you can move on to something else, or relax.

For sure. Your mother's "moving on to something else" is really important. Thanks for highlighting that. We have a limited time on earth and should make the most of it. Still, relaxation time is very human, we need it to recharge.

I just finished the first draft, over a month ahead of schedule. Yee-ha! I still have to add the references and do a first edit. Then I will submit it for peer review. I pushed the envelope of scientific political correctness pretty substantially but I think I have preempted any expressions of indignity in an introductory section. Time will tell.

All done! I plan to sleep on it and then submit it tomorrow.

Now I have a month to move on to something else...probably doing reviews of some of the other papers. ;)

Good to hear that you now have time to do something else.
One more thing off the to do list

Thanks for reminding me to check it off!

Next up: apply for Medicare. Who thought that time would ever come? :facepalm:
