What Have I Been Doing since July, 2008?

The blog hasn’t been updated for nine month! What have I been doing? Here is the answer. This summary of activities was originally prepared to be submitted for my supervisors as a proff that I am not waisting my timeback home. The version posted here is slightly modified.
