OK, so I haven't posted since January. Yes. Fine. But I did write a 263-page dissertation that I successfully defended today. So I've got that going for me.

Congratulations. "Welcome to the community of scholars," as they say.
Congratulations! But "Dr. The Tensor" sounds like a request to fudge the results.
Congratulations, Herr Doktor The Tensor!
Re: the "the" appended to your ... name: have you read To Live Forever by Jack Vance? It's a great short story and amusingly relevant to the whole idea constellation of academic degrees, social status of those who earn them, and how to address them. Check it out!

Heartiest congratulations! All is forgiven - nay, explained and washed away!
Congratulations! As a fellow PhD student (well, a past fellow - you are now no longer a student, thus ahead of me) who hopes to be in the same place someday. Also, I do hope as Dr. Tensor you will be able to continue/resume posting!
Congrats Dr. Tensor! Do you get any Initials of Rank after your moniker, like DSO, MC, KGB, WTF? And, um, gee, Doc, I hate to mix cocktail parties with displays of previous scars, but can you fix my dangling participles?

I just noticed! Congralations!
What to Bob the Builder and Vlad the Impaler have in common?
Same middle name.
Is Mrs. Dr. The Tensor related, by any chance, to Dr. Mrs. The Monarch?
