    I can't think of who knows c++ right now :/
    So octoplush (named Mona) is a Squishable product. I 'unno if ya'll have ever squished something from them, but it's super high quality. I am pleased.

    @davidjcastner
    Are they all named mona?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    They are all bagged up nicely. I did fiddle a bag around so I could see a hang tag and it was mona as well.

    Tavorodz
    @Tavorodz
    Not sure yet. Right now my goal is to improve my computer technical skills, and either stay in the industry or branch to something else

    I did asset protection and physical security for years, working in a fraud department sounds like a lot of fun. Do you guys get a lot of people trying to abuse reg E?
    Tavorodz
    @Tavorodz
    I used to see a lot of those cases when I used to work in Debit Card Disputes
    Right now I work in Organized fraud
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    that sounds very cool
    Tavorodz
    @Tavorodz
    trying lo link fraud cases to each other to see if they are part of a ring
    but I am way behind on my computer skills and would like to improve on that
    Have you guys been coding for a while now?
    or did you start recently
    by the way nice to meet you both. my manners are awful lol
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446

    Howdy @Tavorodz and @TScottM12 .
    We have a wide range of skills from the brand new to the decades of experience. It's been a lot of fun.

    @davidjcastner
    Yay activity in the chat
    what'd I miss?
    @Tavorodz Welcome to freecodecamp! I've been working as a programmer for about 2.5 years. What got you interested in learning to code?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    This looks interesting. https://gomix.com/community/

    @TScottM12
    I've dabbled in design and development off and on for years, so I have some experience, but not in a professional setting. And despite having a degree and having done some graduate work it's all in an unrelated field, so trying to get my foot in the door somewhere has been a challenge.
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Not speaking from personal experience but from what I've heard from others, making projects for whatever reason can really help with that.

    @JBC944
    I have two problems i dont understand grid systems even after reading about it and I do not know where to put this slide show code that jason made.
    The slide show code has java script and html and csss in it
    I need to put into my style guide
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    javascript goes in a somenamehere.js file and the css would go into your css file with the rest.
    JBC944
    @JBC944
    how would I link java script to the style guide?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    looking for a quick write up on that now cuz i'm too lazy to do it xD
    <script type="text/javascript" src="somenamehere.js"></script>
    where you put that in the file matters. But I don't know the code Jason did so I would probably put it at the very bottom of the page just before the </body></html> but i can't find a write up quick enough to explains the whys.
    JBC944
    @JBC944
    wouldnt it go in the head?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    depends on the code
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    if I remember correctly it depends on the scope you want your variables to have to some extent
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    try it and see if it works. it's hard to say without having the time to dig into the code.
    @lantech19446 it's due to load order in the DOM. end is safer as everything in the DOM has loaded. But... the page may draw on the screen before the js does its thing which can do weird things depending.
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    o ok
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    like, if the script says make div #blah blue and div #blah hasn't loaded yet, then the script will do nothing even once the div is loaded in memory.
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    o ok makes sense
    and it's sleeting again
