PhD tools

While working as a PhD candidate is not exactly hard manual labour, the person with the most automated everyday life when they die, win at life.

PhD tools is a set of tools to accomplish this. Currently, it has parts for keeping track of quotas and hours spent for various projects, as well as automating the more annoying parts of grading student submissions.

PhD tools is available in source form from GitHub and requires a reasonably recent version of the Haskell Platform to install.
