thisis drawing circles

A data matrix from sdfsys exported as a png:

The data was drawn using the macro syntax of thisis; six slightly different macro sequences were recorded for putting points relative to points that have been put, and another macro is defined for drawing six circles at a time with those points.

Getting there

With such a backlog of things that one could blog about, one may feel overwhelmed to the point of paralysis, and thus end up not posting anything.  Having updated aspects of my internet self in the past 24 hours, I thought it time to post something, so that’s what this is.

Because it’s blog post about posting blog posts I’m creating the ‘meta’ category for it, but I’ll also file it under ‘null’ which is the only other category in place so far.†

I’m close to completing the ‘minor corrections/amendments’ to my PhD.  Alongside the process of correcting typos, adding a few citations, and so on, I have also been porting most of my PhD work to a static HTML site: http://phd.samuelfreeman.me.uk – I’m getting there now with all that, and looking forward to actually finishing it.  The degree was award six weeks ago, which is when all the congratulations come, but I don’t expect to feel that it’s over until I’ve got the hat on.

I hope the University’s Chancellor will be there to preside at my graduation (whenever that may be)…

† (having written more, I suppose there are more categories that can be created at this point too)
