    hmmm. I can’t decide what to work on tonight. I should probably do FCC projects

    Unfortunately I won't make it to the online coding tonight. I went 8 days in a row; gotta take a night off.

    @Lilyheart
    Well, you have been coding a storm up lately Phy!

    Hi! Here. Did everyone (anyone?) have a good weekend? (presumably that excludes you, Lily :) )
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Weekend was productive.
    Mike
    @dcpking
    Heh!! Aside from the early awakening :)
    I managed to get through most of the CSS stuff in the UDemy course. Stopped him at the start of the noughts-and-crosses, after he'd described the task, and did it myself! (not looked at the answer yet, but it works!)

    @Lilyheart
    awesome! I love when that happens!
    Mike
    @dcpking
    Yes, I thought it was quite neat (took a while, but whatever) ... I just don't think he'd approve of me using the <center> ... </center> html tag :)
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    noooooooooooo
    bad!
    :angry:
    kill dem bad habits now!
    Mike
    @dcpking
    You nailed me, @Lilyheart - but it works! Everywhere! Mind you, I haven't tried the CSS with IE 5.5 yet though :)
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    it works but it's a bad habit. It becomes unchangeable via CSS.
    Mike
    @dcpking
    Now that's an excellent idea! Keep these CS wallahs at bay! (sorry! I'm an engineer :) )
    (But I'll do penance and go back and see how he thinks best!)
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    leaning on those tags will make life difficult later. Best to nip it in the bud now.
    gonna try deploying MontBot

    Yes, I read that much. I think I need to get much further back into js before I'll "get" half of it.
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    I had to get pretty deep into js before it clicked.

    @Lilyheart Then there's hope for me yet :)

    It probably doesn't actually do anything yet. I haven't really tested all the features yet. xD

    Coding Help

    I started this list while doing Algorithms, noticing a few things that were common issues / questions but I think most of them are going to be useful to people coding in general. If you've got some tips to help people code I'd love to hear them.

    1. If you don't know where to start, write some pseudocode. Plan out the logic you're trying to implement in your native language before you try to put it into code.

    2. Comment your code! Can't stress that one enough, if you get lost or take a break then come back you need to know what your code is trying to do. It will also reinforce what the code means to you, and help other people understand what your code does if you get stuck and ask for help. If you've got a any other tips for campers I'd love to see them!

    3. Use the chrome javascript debugger console in conjunction with something like netbeans IDE or sublime text to write your code. Both are free to download. <br />
      The free code camp window is great but you can get a lot more feedback on your code's behaviour by using chrome's JS debugger and a bunch of console.log(myVariableGoesHere); <br />
      https://developer.chrome.com/devtools/docs/console <br />
      http://www.sublimetext.com/ <br />
      https://netbeans.org/downloads/

    4. Posting your code in gitter is as simple as adding a line consisting of only

      ```

      Then your code on the next lines, followed by a final

      ```
