Videos are available, at last. Here is how to watch: Click on the "videos" link on the left. (This used to direct you to last fall's lectures.) Click student. You'll be asked to authenticate. The user name to use is "[yourandrewID]@andrew.ad.cmu.edu" along with your usual andrew password. Note the "ad" in the domain. Note also that if your authentication fails, go to myandrew and reset your password to itself. (Why this works I cannot explain.) Use the slide tray on the bottom to navigate. Videos that show powerpoint directly have a search function that you can use to find specific material -- the index is built from text on the slides. Try also the note-taking tab. Apologies for not getting these out sooner, but the video folks have had technical problems supporting us. let me know if any problems. --Bill

Since many students have been having trouble getting their competitive code to compile on Frontdesk along with the unit-tested classes, we are going to split the handin. The chess assignment that is on Frontdesk now needs to compile, pass the unit tests, and have the theory questions completed. On Wednesday, I will create an assignment on Frontdesk called chess_competition, where each pair will need to submit the final version of the code you used on the server (it does not need to compile). You will not recieve points for BachChoy/JackBach/211 pool without submitting the final version of your code to the chess_competition assignment. Direct questions to the discussion board.
