Done writing - now for the deletions and references 2005-03-25

Finished writing the bulk of the text for my essay... Now I need to trim it down from 6000 words to the 4000 word limit. Somehow I think my 10.000-15.000 word dissertation next year is going to be rather straightforward. I hate having to cut, but I hate writing with the word limit in mind even more, so I tend to write far to much to make sure I cover everything I want, and then go through and try to pick the least important stuff to delete afterwards instead.

Then there's only the references left. At least I'll probably get it in tonight, so that I can enjoy the rest of the easter weekend and focus on writing some cool programs instead.

On a related note, I've just signed up for the last two course before my dissertation. I ended up with a course on computer architectures which should be a breeze (I learned assembly first time 17-18 years ago I think) and one on information security which could actually be quite interesting.

My next question now is what I'll do once I've finished my MSc. I've been toying with the idea of an MBA, or alternatively taking some other courses first - possibly a BSc. in Economics together with some modules on British law. I've gotten addicted to studying again ;)
