  1. Congrats to Olli! Now, I am a great fan of Aphra, so I am afraid Olli is in for some grand opposition!

  2. Greetings from Japan, and please forward my congratulations to Olli! I wish I could come and hear the public defence, but oh well. I’m sort of busy on this side of the globe.

    Hope everything’s going well in Finland, despite the depression and fundamental changes in the university infrastructure…
