Progress Report

Email at work from ADFA saying that they were awaiting completion of a Progress Report Form sent to me on 28 November 2003. The University is required to report on the progress of research candidates in the first six months of enrolment and then at least once a year. Required by whom? Some mysterious entity known as the Committee. Probably plotting to take over the world. In the old days James Bond would've sorted them out. Anyhow, I never got it. I listed progress achieved in 2003 as:
