     Prof Patt,

     Will there be office hours through the week of 12/6-12/10?
     Sorry if this question has already been answered. Thanks.

Yes, there will be office hours during finals week. Many of the TAs are going to hold "augmented" office hours, where the office hours will be held in a classroom, and other students will be allowed to come and listen to the questions ...and answers. Check the website in a day or so to learn the schedule.

Unfortunately, I will not be able to do this. I am flying out on Thursday afternoon, and will not be back until the following Thursday night. So, I will see you in class on Wednesday, and then not again until the final exam.

We have reached (almost) the end of the road together. One more class, one more programming lab, and the final. I hope you do your best on the final. It will make a difference.

And, good luck on what comes next.
