He's working on his book. Strange that when I began he had problems with me working on logistics and covering stuff he might want to write up one day but now he's realised that it's not his bag and was suggesting that when I write my book (yeah, right) I should start from the begining (ie recap his thesis).
Also, next time I speak to Jeff I must cross examine him about the bibliography. What a pain. Fortunately, I'm better off than John; I can manipulate the whole thesis with Perl scripts. OLE!
