Becoming a postdoc

I appear to have "officially" have received my Ph.D. as viewed by the school bureaucracy, even though I have yet to receive my diploma on the 26th at my graduation. The only way this manifests is that my keycard has been locked out from the school doors, which can suck when I need to get to school on odd hours. It's just an annoyance that I will have to put up until I completely move my stuff out of the school. Anyway, since I have my doctorate, I also need to be working at someplace new starting in March.

This place is going to be the National Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Korea. I will start working at the institute as a postdoctoral researcher, where I will be conducting research on computer networks with a theoretical bent. It's pretty much where I am living right now, so there's no painful moving to go through. I do expect a whole pile of work for me when I actually start working, considering there's already a pile of work right now even before I've started ...
