No, this isn't an implementation of Aaron's thesis (reagents [1]). It's an implementation of Keir Fraser's thesis :) [2]

Wow, I am very impressed with the typesetting on [1]. Jealous, even...

Someone procrastinated a lot. :)

Not toooo much, but I will say that feeling inspired by the typesetting helped keep my motivation up for all 299 pages...

Page 9 has a TL;DR footnote. Degree granted.

I totally get that. Even though I spent 50% of my time on a take-home math final writing it in XeTeX from scratch (or "article"), it was still worth it, even if only for the motivation. I love the choice of Minion in your paper, but I needed something more math-friendly so I went with my other favorite: Arno Pro.

Oh, and thank you for including a colophon, I really wish more books did that :)

I was mostly joking ... but procrastination is sometimes valuable in and unto itself.

The typesetting is quite remarkable. If you're going to procrastinate, this is sure a good way to do it.

Assuming you refer to Aaron's thesis? (Haven't seen the other, no offense..). I felt the same exact way. Want that template :)
