Well, I flubbed some of the questions -- one in particular, from a paper that I thought I could get away with not reading again -- and I'm irritated because I didn't get to show off all the things I actually did know. Also, one of my committee members was like "Oh, there's a second page to this reading list?" ... It was classic. But in the end, it all worked out okay.

Thank you for your encouragement! I noticed your name in the acks of Turbak and Gifford. :)

Yeah, but when you get your Ph.D, there isn't going to be an asterisk on it saying "she answered some of the questions on her qual imperfectly" :-)

Yeah, and I'm here to tell you that that acknowledgment is not nearly detailed enough. I stood in a phone booth in Oxford for 45 minutes at 11:00 at night reading corrections to Lyn over the phone. And arguing with him about whether static types actually restricted what programmers could express. It was good times.
