Gallow Proof

...or Galley Proof, as the publishers like to call it.

After receiving this and reading through it for a really cool paper that recently got accepted, it appeared that few changes needed to be made. Which is good, because anything beyond minor/cosmetic changes to a manuscript at this point requires a major production and thus a lot of work.

Well guess what - I f*cked up! Text fragments in three of the figures are screwed up by one letter following a revision, and now the ante has been upped for the work that needs to be put in. What I envisioned to be a two-hour job is now something that easily will take me all of tomorrow, with no guarantee what the final outcome will be, as there is no such thing as a second galley proof.

F*ck this and the giraffe it rode in on!
