Okay, so here is a pristine, new Assignment Log thread. Sorry, but I terminated the old one, so everyone's last post is history. Time to start fresh!

Carol, on the old assignment log (that was replaced with this log), there was a link to a page that explained the meaning of the colors of the assignment list. If possible, would you be able to add that link back to the assignment list?

    It took a little longer due to some technical difficulties but Java-8 is finally completed (and got a brand new, shiny moosehead, too).
    Moving on to OOP now, assignment to follow.

    OOP-4 completed.

    I'm not sure how soon I'll get to the servlets exercises. With luck it won't be too much of a challenge to do them with Apache, rather than the defunct Orion.

    Hello Richard, and welcome to the drive. I am assuming you have enrolled and are getting your first assignment ready for nitpicking, and I will add you to the
    assignment log thread when you post your first attempt. It's a fun way to track your progress and commiserate with the other drivers. See you out on the trail!

    Working on Assignment 1a, frustrated.

    I submitted twice already, with progress, but can't seem to get it. I got as far as getting Gertrude to appear across the screen without spaces. It simply displayed Gertrude in straight rows and columns.

    Then I changed something and now only get Gertrude to appear 100 times, all in one column. Going crazy.

    p.s. I don't have the recommended book(s), yet. I do have Java:How To Program. 7th Edition.

    Ah, yes. The good old Hundred. I think I had 4 or 5 nitpicks on this one. You can search old posts to pick up hints from other driver's struggles. Sometimes that helps get you past a deep rut!

    Hello Lisa!  I got a notification of your post this morning, and I haven't been on this site for quite a while. I don't know the answer to your question. Others may be doing the Cattle Drive, but not posting in this thread. When I was working through the Drive, there were about a dozen active drivers, and this thread provided encouragement, a place to vent, and a way to track everyone's progress. I moderated this forum many moons ago, but no longer. I still have the access needed to update your status in the log, and I'd be willing to do that if you'd like. It may even bring some drivers who are on the trail out of the shadows! Good luck with your assignments!
