Yeah I lost 5 points on an assignment as well, no explanation. Not happy about that, if it continues I am going to have to start blowing up her inbox

She doesn't respond. I've sent many emails about the quizzes and/or test problems and have never gotten a response.
And since she no longer works at the college, you can't see her in person, either.

Gary A. Newsome
@garyanewsome
Dec 13 2015 17:25

I may actually look at it again later, just to make sure I don't want to add anything or doll it up

I'm better with databases than html. Not too bad with one exception. If you read the problem, you'll see it tells you which 6 fields to put in the DB. But later it wants you to be able to display the records for a specific....ZIP code. Zip code is not one of the 6 fields in you're supposed to put in the DB. I tried adding it but then got an error telling me I couldn't write more than 6 fields at a time. Huh??? So after screwing everything up trying to add the zip, I had to start again (easier than trying to figure out why stuff wasn't working). Left out zip and doing a search on City. And noting the problem with the problem when I turn it in.

@garyanewsome
Dec 13 2015 17:32

Samantha Shurie
@sshurie
Dec 13 2015 17:33

I had time to finish last night but I was so frustrated, I had to walk away.
Gary A. Newsome
@garyanewsome
Dec 13 2015 17:33
I understand, I had to look up how to do web apps quick, since you know anytime we get to something new its hit and run do this really cool thing for 4 exercises then never touch it again
Samantha Shurie
@sshurie
Dec 13 2015 17:34

Sharon R. Tinkey
@srtinkey
Dec 13 2015 17:34
lol Yep! That's what I'm doing now. Reading through the step-by-step so I get it done right the first time.
Samantha Shurie
@sshurie
Dec 13 2015 17:34

Gary A. Newsome
@garyanewsome
Dec 13 2015 17:35

Samantha Shurie
@sshurie
Dec 13 2015 17:35
That's okay, I think all the code is the same, just have to copypasta :smile:
No I think I did
Sharon R. Tinkey
@srtinkey
Dec 13 2015 17:35
Hopefully this won't take me too long. An hour?
Yep! Lots of copypasta!
Gary A. Newsome
@garyanewsome

My Access class was a year ago. So I did fumble around a little bit but what I ended up doing was opening a chapter database, saving it under another name, and modifying it. Another form of.....copypasta. hehe
Samantha Shurie
@sshurie
Dec 13 2015 17:39
ahhhh that didn't copy right lol
oh well
Sharon R. Tinkey
@srtinkey

Samantha Shurie
@sshurie
Dec 13 2015 17:42
@garyanewsome looked in the book. Yes, you were right, it was supposed to be a web application. That's almost easier than what I did though lol
Sharon R. Tinkey
@srtinkey
Dec 13 2015 17:42
I always get lost looking for images. :-)
Samantha Shurie
@sshurie
Dec 13 2015 17:42

me too!
Gary A. Newsome
@garyanewsome
Dec 13 2015 17:42
yes, the web chapter was really easy, the hardest part was just remembering how to do them
Samantha Shurie
@sshurie
Dec 13 2015 17:43
yep, I'll probably need a little refresher
Sharon R. Tinkey
@srtinkey
Dec 13 2015 17:43
None of it is too hard.....at the time. It's trying to remember it later to do it again that's the hard part.
Gary A. Newsome
@garyanewsome
Dec 13 2015 17:43

Samantha Shurie
@sshurie
Dec 13 2015 17:44
