My friends from high school and I have an agreement that we simply don't get presents for each other. I believe I've told the story before about why we do this. My friend Sam's birthday is 14/01 and I'm 17/01. For his 14th birthday, I gave Sam $20. Three days later, he gave me the very same note back. From that point on, no presents. We all suck at buying presents and think money is the best gift, so we figure it's pointless to just give money we'll get back later!

so basically i am hoping to hit 50 pages at this point. when i double space i'm at about 30 now, 6500 words. i'm gonna turn it in as a pdf so they can't see that i've made margins 1.3 instead of 1.25, i might make the font 12.2 and the spacing 2.1 instead of 2. bad bad bad.

Hell, that's just a bit confusing. As far as I'm aware, the Honours year thesis here is 10,000 words. I don't get how it seems some places over your way do page limits - that seems to unduly penalise people who use large words. If you're a person who writes in short words, you could fit in more content. Same if you're just lucky with your paragraph breaks.

And sneaky.

hey can someone tell me how to make only the last line of text in a paragraph (footnote actually) have a double space? so that the footnotes individually are single spaced but there's an enter between them?

when i'm pressed to meet a count i totally add extra words to sentences that will push my paragraph breaks over.

I have no idea. I'd just do that manually.

Also, note how the way I wrote that comment shows my clear bias towards longer word limits ... can't wait for the 10,000 word Honours thesis! Or 50,000 words for my PhD ...

Just as I was getting the hang of that "enter the page number" box, it's gone...

Hey Ax and Vari

ETA: I like this edit thing. Just found the box...

Seems every time I whinge about something, the solution appears!



OH DARN I WISH I HAD MORE MONEY......
