Erkan's quarterly visit to the military office

update: this time it was harder. spent all my afternoon. but don’t worry. i am free until December, until the next postponement…

I will be on my way to the military office in Bahçelievler to postpone the mandatory duty for another 4 months. It is always stressful to do that. Turkish army does excuse us from the service only in the first 5 years of PhD. If I were a grad student in Turkey that would be 7 or 8 years. But for a programme in US this is only for 5 years. Although the length of the latter is longer. Any logic? So I have to go through complicated procedures (!) to postpone.  Under normal conditions Erkan will have to serve for 5 months starting on April 2009. That’s my current plan.


here is a goody. there might be something wrong with this free download but i have seen the news around in the web several times…
