Meeting with Jeff

Jeff thinks that the thesis should be turned into a book.

First thing, though, is to satisfy the academic criteria. He told me not to worry about crossing the i's and dotting the t's yet. He asked me to find out how long I have left to finish the thesis. So I walked over to Student admin and asked Vivienne, who is in charge of the Postgrad Research students. There is so few of us that it is just as easy to process us by hand. They use the computer anyway. The answer is that I've been going since 2003 and therefore have another 3½ years before the University tosses me out. This should be enough. He also wanted to know what the word count was. This hasn't been done for a while, so I've run off a new one. Here it is:

Chapter Pages Words Inc Notes % Notes
0. Introduction 6 1,602 1,913 16%
1. Strategy and Logistics 17 4,884 6,067 19%
2. The Base Sub Areas 28 8,118 10,193 20%
3. * The Bases in Papua
4. The Bulldog Road 35 9,150 10,742 15%
5. * Wau-Salamaua 11 2,740 3,587 24%
6. Cartwheel Gets Rolling 38 12,915 15,608 17%
7. The Base at Lae 25 7,142 8526 16%
8. The Markham Valley 33 9,397 11,295 17%
9. Finschhafen 40 11,298 14,434 22%
10. * Saidor and Madang 13 3,605 4,043 11%
11. * Aitape
12. * New Britain 12 3,134 3,362 7%
13. * Bougainville
14. * Borneo
Total 258 73,985 89,770 100%
Target 100%

* = incomplete chapters

You can see that there is a serious problem with the word count when 90% of the words are there but only 60% of the chapters.
