    hey guys is:

    function isEven(num){
    return (num % 2 === 0);
    }

    the same as

    if (num % 2 === 0){
    return true
    }

    Be curious. re-watch videos that don't make "sense". Play around in the console those are some of the first steps to really "digging in and understanding" what is going on
    it's ok to watch a video, not understand it and watch it 3, 4 or 5 times to make sure you know what you are doing

    Thanks dekota!
    Agree it is best to watch something several times to get your head around it

    Looks like a good sized group here. What do you guys favor for online code editors ? C9.io or something different/better that's free ?
    Boomer
    @boomer1204
    well c9 is free. The other options I have seen are nitrous and hyperdev. Nitrous when I used it a year ago or so was mehhh. Hyperdev is pretty slick but not as "user friendly" as c9 is. I think overall c9 is the best out there

    @mobileappdevatl_twitter
    Great thank you @boomer1204
    Boomer
    @boomer1204
    np the only catch to c9 is if you don't have an account already they do make you put a credit card in. There was a rash of scammers/bots/abusers signing up and using it for nefarious activities. You can use a cc, debit card or just buy a prepaid one from best buy/walgreens and use it. Kind of a hassle if you are new but I do think c9 is one of the best options plus you can share you workspace with Ian if you run into problems and can't solve them over the Q&A section

    how do you get sublime text to duplicate a line of text?
    James Hall
    @James-H33
    Highlight the line you want to dup and press Ctrl+shift+d
    Krista Handel
    @meloncatty
    ahh, yeah I just learned that. early on Colt said he just pressed some buttons to duplicate lines like <label></label> etc
    Mike Hickman
    @pdxmike
    You don't even have to highlight the line, to be honest. That's extra work
    Just be on the line
    maybe that's what James meant, but if not, just want to clarify that you don't have to physically highlight the line
    James Hall
    @James-H33
    @pdxmike you are correct! I was being a bit lazy
    Mike Hickman
    @pdxmike
    Haha :thumbsup:
    You did all the work on the answer. I just swung in to clarify. Teamwork :muscle:

    I keep forgetting to properly shut down Mongo so I switched to working locally. I’m pretty excited that I got everything to work on my own!!!

    However, now I’m wondering if I should try to fix the mongo database on c9 so I can share my work if/when I get stuck later on in the class… I’m working through Section 29, RESTful Routing now. What are your thoughts? Anyone else constantly messing up their databse?!

    James Hall
    @James-H33
    @jess-alexander I wouldn't worry about it. Just give us the errors your get in the console. You can also push your files to github and we can clone them if something really tricky is happening.

    Can anyone help me figure out why the bottom row of pictures won't line up correctly? http://codepen.io/EmMitchington/pen/qNrXYk
    Jess Alexander
    @jess-alexander

    @EmMitchington With this setup, all the pictures have to be the same size.

    Check out unsplash source and scroll down to the very bottom where it says “specific photo"

    You’ll be able to make all the pictures the same size and fix the formatting issue.

    @EmMitchington
    @jess-alexander Thanks! I tried adding the sizing at the end of the url but then I just get broken images. Any other tips?

    @jess-alexander cd ~/data; rm mongod.lock; cd ~; ./mongod
    @jess-alexander Not sure how clean it is, but it works for me when I forgets to shutdown
    Jess Alexander
    @jess-alexander
    @EmMitchington - the images are broken because something in the URL is incorrect. You’ll have to look at the URL very carefully - or you could go a different route by having unsplash source generate random pictures from a collection or an author.
