The Coding Saga Reaches Its Epic Conclusion

I take full responsibility for the melodrama in those 'Coding Saga' posts. It will take a few week to fully process the class.

The Coding Saga Almost Ends

It's week nine of this ten week course. Mentally, if my brain had feet, I have one foot out the door. Add one other thing to academic fatigue - Hannibal starts tonight. When I stayed home those two weeks in October, I caught up on the first two seasons.  As Hannibal ate the rude in …
