I'm not Delta, but thought I should comment as I was also one of the unemployed lot when this thread started.
Well, after working for my PhD sup unpaid for several months, he's given me a job for 6 months. This is my 3rd week :-)
Good luck everyone, and I'll probably be back in May :$

Umm... I can't imagine that you would be entitled to it because you're not an employee (I'm presuming you're doing a full-time PhD).
Your studentship might have a provision for maternity pay while it's still active, though. I could be wrong about all of this though :p
Umm.. no. I couldn't get on with Cite while you write (and didn't have Ref manager on my home computer anyway...). The refs that I had in the text I inserted manually, and I just used reference manager to generate a bibiliography. Then I just saved that as a PDF...
I don't think you have anything to worry about - it sounds like they have chosed that option because it will give you more time, so that you are not rushing around trying to get corrections approved once you've done them.
My uni has a minor deficiencies option - where you get 12 weeks to do the corrections. That was the outcome of my viva - and I was told that there was no way that they would take 12 weeks to do. My supervisor also pointed out that it was better to get the 12 week corrections than the 4 weeks one, as you can struggle to get everything done in time.
I really think you shouldn't be upset about it - just do the corrections, if they take you 3 weeks or 3 months - you'll have your PhD once they're done! :-)
