    holy crap ... free code camp is 2080 hours? I had no idea. That's an entire year of full time work...
    If I can set aside 20 hours a week it will only take me two years

    For some things is a great overestimation imo.
    You already have coding background. Some sections you are gonna FLY through.
    Robert Marcy
    @Ryzilynt
    so it is 2080 hours equivalent? they dont require that many hours be logged?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    No. They made educated guesses about how long each section would take. Average case (maybe leaning towards worst case). Then added up all the sections.
    you don't even "need" to do all the sections to get the cert if you have background. The "get the cert" page will say what sections need to be done.

    seems like a pretty cool oppurtunity

    ok , up to 81 , calling it a night

    All over the place really. Some just started. One finished front end that I know of. I'm close to finishing frontend. I'm not sure where David is. I'd say most people are probably in the big JavaScript section though.

    I think I'm almost finished the cat phone app. Someone already sent me brownie points for helping in chat , what can I buy with those ? :)
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Ha! They add to your total points in the upper right of your screen and fill in that block on your profile page.
    @MontBot will do that too xD
    thanks @Ryzilynt

    Tho I've been meaning to change it from brownie to cookie... cuz it's a cookie pictures xD (Or @SimplyPhy was gonna before he was swallowed up by his new job :laughing: )
    MontBot likes to sleep a lot however and you have to wake them up if you want something xD The web address is in the header message of the chat room. Someday I'll move them over to somewhere where they can always be awake. montbot.herokuapp.com
    I'm off to get ready for school!

    @/all The Spring 2017 MontCode schedule is done after David and I spent hours pouring over all of ya'lls wonderful responses. A few changes:

    @mattjrichards
    anybody awake?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    I am but probably shouldn’t be xD
    Matt Richards
    @mattjrichards
    lol...feel like helping me with something? If you're about to go to sleep I can get help in FCC chat.
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Browsing nonsense in the dark xD
    What’s up?
    Matt Richards
    @mattjrichards
    I'm trying to figure out why when I make changes in my main.css file they don't reflect in the browser. I'm using Atom with Chrome and LiveReload.
    Some changes work, but others don't.
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    what isn’t?
    @davidjcastner you ever use livereload?
    Matt Richards
    @mattjrichards
    I don't think it's the LiveReload. I think it might have something to do with the links I have in the <head> in my html.
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    You want to put some of the snippet code here you think is the issue? To put code up type three backticks (grave symbol found on the key with the ~ ) then hit shift enter, put it the code, shift enter again and three more backticks. Put it in an easier to read code block.
    Matt Richards
    @mattjrichards
    ok

        </body>
    </html>
    Then I have this at the bottom of my html.
    Matt Richards
    @mattjrichards
    h1 {
      color: green;
      font-size:4.0em;
      padding:0px;
      margin-top:0px;
    I can change the padding and it works. But if I try to change the color or the font size it doesn't reflect the changes.
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Is the code being over written by something else? You wanna just stick the code in a dummy codepen file and i’ll grab it and you can delete the pen?
    I was just trying to mock up some stuff with your code but the actual code might work better.
    Matt Richards
    @mattjrichards
    It works in Codepen, but when I copy and paste the code from Codepen into Atom it doesn't work right. Although, in Codepen I don't have those Bootstrap links in the head. I'll copy and paste exactly what I have in Atom into Codepen. Gimmee a minute.
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    coolie. then i’ll steal the code and make it local. easy code transferrance xD

    I've used live reload once or twice but not in depth, I'm reading through the convo at the moment
    Matt Richards
    @mattjrichards
    It's doing the same thing in Codepen. I think it may be the Bootstrap links.
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    got i think, not tested.
    in your code, move your stylesheet link to main.css to after bootstrap
