Yuppie, I am finally free to work on the project. I finished the final version of my dissertation and now my spare time will be actually mostly spent working on the compressed caching project :-))
Now it is time to update the performance statistics available on the project web site and to make my dissertation available on my web site. Oh, and I can't forget to upload of my papers to the web site, it may be worthwhile for people interested in more information.
On Friday I submitted the paper to the Symposium on Computer Architecture and High Performance Computing (SBAC). Now fingers crossed (notifications by July 28th).
I checked the types of available diplomas I can get, and the free one is done with regular paper. There is a special version, which is done with sheep's skin, but it is expensive. I am still thinking which one I will pick.
