Class Procedures and Reminders
Assignment Stack. As always, you can check the stack to make sure I received your Project assignment; I'll be updating the stack periodically over the weekend, and on Monday I'll start responding to the assignments in the order they were turned in. To get comments back sooner rather than later, turn in your assignment this morning or during the afternoon — if you wait until Sunday evening, you'll have a longer wait for comments back.
Extra Credit: Review. There are lots of extra credit assignments available each week, but I would really like to recommend the Extra Credit Review assignment. It's a chance to catch up on the announcements for the past week, and also to make sure you've declared and backed up your work for the past week.
The following items are for fun and exploration:

GrammarCatz. It's Nirvana Cat.
