Pressure of doing PhD

Its been a while since the last major feature addition to GuruLib. Pressure of PhD is finally getting on me. One year ago I quit a comfortable job at Garmin for pursuing a PhD in computer Engineering. Honeymoon period is finally over and I have to start churning out papers. My advisor is on my tail imploring me to “start working 24 hours like a dog”. My specific research is on indoor localization using wireless. Lately, I had some inspiration and finally put together enough material for a paper. I hope the conferences that I am planning to send the paper will find my ideas interesting enough for publication.

Sorry to go on ranting about my problems. Anyway this post is to let you all know that I am still working on fixing bugs in GuruLib and keeping it going healthy. I use GuruLib daily to catalog the collection of research papers on my subject of interest.



  1. I wish you good luck for PhD,and we thank you all for the great piece of work you have done with gurulib.

  2. Just keep pressing. I am sure you know this, but the only way to succeed in the PhD program is to persevere.

    And thanks for this GREAT site!
