I made it. Been to lectures. Nobody bit me.
I even asked one of the lecturers if there may be the lecture materials available since I spent six weeks working on my doctoral thesis in Stockholm. He didn't blink and said that the presentations will be placed on the internetz in December.
Sure, I need to print out the syllabi and check the books, I might not get so tough as to ask but I think I love the whole thing.
Now I should only kick my ass hard enough to finish my doctoral thesis. Le sigh.
