Tab hand
We're missing an image for the new tab in this year's Graduate Studies Prospectus, so I drew my own to fill the gap during a 5-minute coffee-break. Graphic design isn't my strong point, so if you look closely you may be able to tell which one is mine:

Nice work!

I think they should keep it...

Ah, yes. Couldn't you get the same colour for that fourth tab?

(g,d&r)

:-P

That's the "on" colour. Clearly differentiated from the "off" colour by being a subtly different shade of grey. It's, you know, kinda minimalist.

Apparently our corporate image is supposed to be "Global, meritocratic, innovative, and excellent" ... but not "interesting", fortunately.

It's better than Comic Sans. Which our lot told a certain person she wasn't to use anymore, hurrah.

Hurrah indeed!

Where's Esther Rantzen when you need her?

(Also, did you and O get mail?)

Yes, we did get mail -- thank you for the invitation! I'm afraid there's no way I can afford to get there but Owen may have plans of his own ... He said he would RSVP (which was why I hadn't done so yet -- sorry) but I will give him a nudge.

If I didn't congratulate you and Meg when you announced your engagement then I certainly should have done so; and if I did, then there's no harm in doing so again, so congratulations! May your ducks never lose their feathers. :-) Unless ducks are supposed to lose some feathers in order to be able to fly, or something. I don't actually know very much about ducks except that they're quite unlike badgers.

Oh, and I think you should webcast the ceremony for all the people who can't get there -- wedding 2.0! 8-)

It's been rumoured, certainly.

Very nice.

Out of purely academic interest, do you happen to know when the Graduate Studies Prospectus is expected to appear? (I may be looking at some sections with interest, although the recent phrase "Those with more than a year of experience (between graduation and enrolment) are unlikely to be successful" suggests I should also consider other options.)

Ooh, what are you thinking of doing?

Theoretically, the publication date for the web version of the GSP is 1st August, but it's quite likely to be about a week late (it usually is, and this year has had more, er, staffing issues than previous years).

The paper version's actually already out, I believe -- but I'm not sure how you'd request it online when it's still the old version of the request form. Hmmm.

(I could just email you the PDFs of the relevant sections, but that sort of thing is probably Deprecated. ;-)

Thanks for that. The Judge Business School has an MPhil in Finance which appeals, as does the MPhil in Management Science (building mathematical or computational models which help organisations make decisions, although I wouldn't have guessed that from the name alone). But it is all still tentative at the moment: there's plenty to think about!
