Yesterday, I got through the Thesis Presentation which I so needed to do, to get the panel's nod and finally move on with the writing of the Thesis Manuscript. I submitted a condensed version of the manuscript containing only the relevant information worth presenting -- which are the encouraging findings nonetheless. I also did a short presentation on Beowulf clusters, and the experiments I've run with regards to the cluster. I had a generally great time having Yannie there at the presentation. I really appreciate her taking the time to go to my presentation and sit there while I ramble on about things she most probably have just heard for the first time. I didn't expect her to understand a single thing I said, but I am very very appreciative of her support. Yesterday I also found a favorite verse in the Bible which I now vow live by for the rest of my life. It goes a little something like this: Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight.
