@crisberrios on the right side: Do you mean the space between the arrows and the right edge of the board? or the small pixel or two gap between the lower border and the arrows? I had to increase the board height when I added the pieces to fit in 5 pieces on one arrow. Thanks for the feedback!

the lower border (and upper too) gap

I think I will save the game state as an object of 2 arrays (or an array of 2 arrays?) one for white and one for black that shows where the current pieces are.
thanks.

whoa, just scrolled up and read a little about “long wait times” to get paired up with non-profits. what’s the wait time looking like nowadays?

I'm not sure
first there were many nonprofits and no campers
then the time passed and there was a burst of campers
and some nonprofits were removed
not there are more campers and not many new nonprofits
but that's changing as there is a lot of work being done regarding that

Good morning. I'm trying to work my way through the nodeschool learnyounode lessons and find that I'm not really getting what a buffer is or what the bl method does. I'd appreciate anyone taking a stab at clarifying this. It is ok to talk to me as if I were five- or six-year-old.

All right. With a little more digging I found info at sitepoint: http://www.sitepoint.com/introduction-to-streams/. Good supplement to the documentation provided with learnyounode.

what's the question?

When I call arr (which seems to be what the intitial input is called), the return is not the same as the input. How do I access the other arrays that I am supposed to use?

if arr is an array with arrays
each array is found at arr[0], arr[1],etc...

That's what I expected, but when I entered arr1 it just gave me the 1 of the first array.

@crisberrios
Apr 02 2015 23:18
but let me check the bonfire first
function sym(arr) {
  return arr;
}

sym([1, 2, 3], [5, 2, 1, 4]);
in this case, "arr" is not useful
as each array will be found at arguments[0], arguments[1] etc
the number of arrays passed can be checked using arguments.length

thanks! I'm doing it too, not for myself but to help attract more nonprofits to FCC :)
also to help Kopernik be more visible, it's a great cause.
