  • Take-home final is up. Due Friday 21 April.

    Apologies not to have this posted earlier. Let me know in advance if the due-date is problematic for you. There is some flexibility. A deadline is just needed to finish things up.

  • Many have asked for longer on the projects. Let's set the deadline for Friday 28 April. We cannot really go beyond that, as grades will need to be in.

    If you are done earlier and turn in your project earlier, great! I know some people were working to get done sooner and towards the Monday 17 April that I said in class. I will be judicious and take that into account, in case folks worry those who work longer would do better.

  • Monday 3 April: Last class day! No readings for the day. Just discussion.

  • As agreed, Assignment #3 is gone. Assignments #1 and #2 are now worth 15% each.

  • Assignment #2 is up and running.
    Due Wednesday 5 April.

    If you want, you can install the Firefox extension XPath Checker that I used in class. You can do this for the Firefox web browser under your deparmental account with no problem; extensions install locally for the user, not globally for everyone. After adding XPath Checker to your firefox, the option "View XPath" appears in the menu that pops up when you click on a page with the right mouse button.
