This message is sufficiently important that I want to make sure
Quang sees it right away.

One question that comes up here: How close do we want different
pieces to resemble each other?

I was goig to ask if there was an opportunity for me to work on the
code after class. If there was, than I can implement some of the
suggestions. That would also mean that Quang couldn't do a screen
capture until after I was done working on the code. I don't know
how long that would take him.

I don't want to go without dinner (in my case, medically it's a bad
idea). In theory, if somebody could (with money I give them), buy
a sandwich (or bagel or whatever) and drink for me, I could keep
coding until just before class.

If we work backward, at class we want to have scenarios, a prototype,
and some documentation. The scenarios are tied to the prototype.

At some point before class we need a code freeze so that there is
enough time to make the scenarios consistent with the code. Do we
have an estimate for how much time that is?

How do we get the code to where the TA can run it?

I won't have time to make any changes before class. I can probably read
e-mail before I leave for class, but work is keeping me away from my
desk for now.

So, you guys can tell me what to do. Work after class or not. Work
through dinner time or not.

If you can reach agreement, that would be wonderful. Otherwise, Quang
is probably the one who should decide.
