Expect FrontDesk slowness Thursday night

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.
