Our midterm exam will be closed-book, closed-notes, etc, except: you may bring a single 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of paper, filled front and back with any notes you want. During the exam you must use only your own note sheet, and you will turn in your notes with your midterm exam. We encourage you to make your own note sheet without collaborating with your classmates. We've found that the process of making your own notes will greatly help you study for the exam.

We've detected at least four cheating cases on the early homework assignments and quizzes, and we'll be handling those cases starting Tuesday night. If you think you have cheated or otherwise violated our collaboration policy, now is your chance to save yourself: your punishment will be much less harsh if you volunteer an unsolicited confession before we contact you. If you might have any reason to be concerned, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org immediately.

The FrontDesk developer warned us that FrontDesk is going to be extremely slow Thursday night, possibly requiring two or more hours to grade each submission. To help yourself (and each other), please submit to FrontDesk as early and as rarely as possible. Try to avoid using FrontDesk as a testing server; it won't work on Thursday night. Instead, please write a good suite of local JUnit tests so that you only need to submit to FrontDesk when your code has passed all your local tests.
