Rationale for this Project


Summary of Progress during October - December 2019
  1. I spent 240 hours in 19Q4 on this Project, or related work (240 hours YTD, where for "YTD" - Year to Date - I mean the (academic) year that commenced in October 2019). That's 84.3% of the planned effort (84.3% YTD). Overall, 35.4% of my Project effort in the Quarter was directed towards this project (making 35.4% YTD) - as against 36.7% planned (36.7% YTD).
  2. A full list of items worked on in the quarter appears below. Previous reports have itemised where my focus has been, but I only intend to do this annually from now on. Enough to note that I spent rather too long catching up with Aeon.
  3. Progress between reports can be obtained from the relevant section of my Summary Task List5. More detail follows:-
Thesis (Total Hours = 85.25)
  1. Thesis - Reading / Writing (Total Hours = 81.75)
  2. Thesis - Discussions
  3. Thesis - Research Repositioning
  4. Thesis - Seminars (Reading)
