Peter Sbarski has submitted

Congratulations to Peter Sbarski on submitting his PhD thesis (just in time for Christmas). Peter developed the layout algorithms used in Authink's software, and more besides. His supervisors were Prof Kim Marriott of Moansh University and Austhink founder Dr Tim van Gelder, but Peter was kind enough to also thank me for my help and sometime mentoring:
Dan, I must thank you for all your advice and work that you have put into this thing. I know that my thesis wouldn't be the same without your help. I really do appreciate everything that you have done and I'll always remember it. In fact, I feel so very lucky that I got to work with you. A huge chunk of this thesis belongs to you.
[Quoted with permission.]

It should be pointed out that Peter was kind enough to include me as a co-author on some of the papers that came out of his thesis work, which I appreciate.

Peter is a bright fellow and collaborating with him and Kim has been a pleasure. I wish him all the best, and hope to work with him again one day.
