PhD

Shortly Leaving London

Some problems are now solved, some new ones have arisen from out of the ashes, and while today has been largely spent observing penance (never, never, try to get Norton off a PC. You’ll be there picking at it like a month-old scab into the third hour of removal. Or if you have no choice, then at least do what I did and take a good book with you), I have started a new side-project: Get the damn PhD published.

Mostly because it’s about time, and also a lunchtime reading of the catalogue from a reasonably large US publisher of academic texts persuaded me that there’s got to be a market for everything. In a world within which 359 pages have been published of a book whose content proclaims: “The Doctor Who Error Finder: Plot, Continuity and Production Mistakes in the Television Series and Films“, retailing for the princely sum of $49.95, then anything is possible.

I’m starting with Macmillan though. They appear to have missed out on the ‘mistakes in Dr Who’ market, so could be up for a book that catches Alan Moore out…

  1. “The Doctor Who Error Finder: Plot, Continuity and Production Mistakes in the Television Series and Films“ is the scintillating sequel to “Why Do I Find it Impossible to Talk to Girls?” and I believe the same author is working on his magnum opus, “Why Getting the Last Word in Internet Arguments about Linux is Totally Better than Talking to Humans”.

  3. Experts – but not at spelling. Or grammar. Or sentence construction. Or the use of capitals. Actually, may I recommend GCSE English? Clear that hurdle and you’ll be king of all the Windows fools and fully qualified to jump off the nearest cliff, which you should do at your earliest convenience.

    Regards,

    Everyone on the planet.
